Having A Meltdown
Lori Gabriel was on a flight with her son when things took a turn. Apparently, her son usually loves to fly. However, he is autistic and was having none of it as Lori tried her best to keep him calm and seated. It looked as though she was fighting a losing battle.
Trying To Cope
Apparently, Lori’s son didn’t want to stay in his seat. Instead, he wanted to lie in the aisle and even tried to make his way into first class. Lori tried everything. Sadly, she was quickly running out of ideas about how to keep him happy.
Support Of Passengers
It turned out that the other passengers were ready to step up and help. Apparently, one of the passengers let Lori’s son kick his seat, even though he was in first class, and also kept him amused with high fives. Plus, another lady handed Lori a note talking about how strong she is and to always be “a super woman.”
Love From The Airline
That wasn’t all. Lori wanted to say a special thanks to the airline crew who let her son choose where he wanted to sit and helped Lori to stay calm as she panicked about how to reassure her son. Lori took to social media to give everyone the appreciation they deserved.
Sometimes, it can feel as though everything is out of our control – especially when we are surrounded by strangers. However, it takes a village to raise a child, or in this case, a flight full of people.
