If our future is in the hands of Generation Z, I’ll be honest — I’m pretty hopeful. At the end of the day, they’re raising money for deaf children and even delivering babies. If you aren’t won over yet, a young hero from Wales rescued five people from dangerous coastlines. To top it off, he’s only 8-years-old!
Brave Steffan Williams was out kayaking when he spotted three tourists – an elderly woman and two teenagers – huddled on a rock. He quickly fetched his rubber dinghy and then towed the terrified trio back to the shore. And just two days later he spotted two teenage boys stuck on the same rock, frantically whistling and waving to catch his attention.
Williams, who was only 6 when he began kayaking and sailing, has since raised £100 for his father’s lifesaving crew. When I was that age, I don’t think I was off training wheels.
“I want to be a life boat person when I get the chance. They are taking away the New Quay lifeboat to replace it with a little one. I’m very sad about that. I want to be on the big lifeboat. You can join at 17.”
If it’s in this child’s nature to help others, I can imagine that most of our younger ones are doing pretty well.
