Isn’t this adorable? Ten-year-old Elijah Porter was heartbroken when the Canadian 4x100 relay team won bronze at the London Olympic Games, only to be disqualified for running outside the lane. Devastated, Elijah wanted to ease the pain and help the runners Justyn Warner, Gavin Smellie, Jared Connaughton, and Oluseyi Smith.
And he did that in the most precious and heartwarming way. He wrote a letter to the runners and also included a medal he was awarded at a soccer clinic sponsored by Tim Hortons as a token of his unwavering support. Below is the image of the heart touching letter:

It is important to mention here that Porter suffers from Asperger’s syndrome and is home-schooled by his mother. He does not write a lot of letters, but he did compose this one for himself, with an occasional spell check from his mother.
Above all, the letter is also extremely overwhelming since it provides even the lost team a hope to strive and perform much better in future games. Unlike others who can only discourage their players after they lose by pushing out hateful tweets against them.
