18-year-old Brent Price was killed in a car crash on June 30, 2016. Following the recent high school graduate's untimely demise, the community held a candlelight vigil in his honor at a local park. When a 10-year-old boy named Max happened to pass by, something about the gathering struck a chord deep within him.
Max ran home, broke his piggy bank open, and ran back to the vigil with three dollars in his hand. Then, he ran back home to get change from his mother's purse, and even made a third trip a little while later with another $20. The little boy had been saving up to buy a guitar because he wants to be a country music star when he grows up, but something about Brent's vigil made him realize that "they need it more."
"Just forget about the guitar," Max says. "I can get that later." Naturally, his kindness towards the family of a teen he didn't even know was quickly noticed by others, and even earned him an appearance on local news!
