A child accidentally ruins a neighbor's plant: he leaves a moving message of apology

May 22, 2021 • By Alison Forde

Every so often, good news arrives, which manages to give us back a little hope for the future and leave us with a smile of pure joy. It's not easy, you will think, these days and, perhaps, it is precisely for this reason that even the simple gesture of a child is news today.  It was the gesture by a child which lit up Giovanni Grandi's day. The associate professor of Moral Philosophy at the Department of Political and Social Sciences of the University of Trieste read a note from a boy who took the trouble to apologize for some small damage done to a neighbor's plant. In addition to apologizing, the child also left 5 euros as compensation.

The child must have accidentally hit his neighbor's plant with a ball while playing football. Instead of running away, once the damage was discovered, the little boy wanted to leave a message of apology and even pay for the damage. We don't know what the age of the child is, but at a guess, considering the writing on the paper he left, he would seem like a kid attending elementary school. It doesn't matter what his chronological age is, but the value of the gesture made. After hitting the plant, the child wrote his apology on a piece of paper, with a blue pen: "Hello, sorry about the plant, I accidentally hit it with a soccer ball. Here's 5 euros for the damage."

Nowadays, it seems almost rare to find an adult who would leave such a note in the event of an accident, when he accidentally hits a car with his own vehicle. Instead, it should be normal.


The professor of Philosophy, Giovanni Grandi, commented on the story in this way on twitter: "A neighbor stopped us and showed us this note, which he found next to one of his damaged plants. A friend of ours left it, the son, with his signature and banknote. My next Public Ethics course at the University can only start from here".

In fact, don't you think the world would become a better place if we all start acting like this kid? There is still a long way to go, it is true, but we are confident!
