Jack Stanley and Rani Assad are students at Harrop Fold School in Salford, England and subjects of the U.K. documentary series, “Educating Greater Manchester,” which debuted on Aug. 31.
The story of Jack and Rani’s sweet friendship spread beyond “Greater Manchester Viewers” as clips of their interviews have reached people across social media over the past week.
Touched by their lovely story, Twitter users were quick to declare #FriendshipGoals and noted that many adults could learn from Jack’s openness toward others and Rani’s kind heart.
″If ever there was a positive message to show how all the world can live together, Rani & Jack just nailed it,” tweeted Paul Benbow.
Rani’s dad Khaled told Manchester Evening News after the show premiered that Jack is “a good guy” who has done “nice things” for his son. “Some children do wrong things but Jack helped my son,” he said.
