A heartwarming moment between a local Louisiana grocer and an autistic customer is proving that it’s truly the little things that count.  

Jordan Taylor, an employee at Rouses Markets in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was filmed assisting Jack Ryan – who is autistic – stock the shelves for 30minutes on Sunday.

Not sure I could.  The next time I am challenged, I’ll remember this young man.

Maybe you can too?
