Sometimes all the medicine you need is a hug from a good friend. When 3-year-old Makai Simmons got back to his pre-school after a traumatic week in the Bahamas and weathering Hurricane Dorian, his friends were more than happy to greet him with open arms.
Makai's mom, Tekara Capron, says her son was a mess following the hurricane. “He thought Dorian was a monster,” she tells Today.com.
And as it turns out Makai deserves a little extra love for his open heart and bravery. His mother writes in one Instagram post that following the storm, her son put on his life vest, and offered to "go save the children in the water."
