    People Are Loving This Boy's Reaction Every Time His Sister Picks Him Up

    "One of the purest things I've ever watched."

    Meet 21-year-old student Jessica Evans and her 15-year-old brother David Evans from Georgia.


    Evans told BuzzFeed News that she and David have always been close.


    "He knows how to make me smile when i'm upset and I do the same for him," she said, describing him as her best friend.

    "He has been my whole world for as long as I can remember."

    "David is 15 years old and has Down syndrome. He is by far the biggest Georgia Bulldog fan, but overall he is probably the funniest and happiest person I know."

    Evans created this compilation video of her surprising her brother coming home from school and it's now at over 170,000 retweets.

    for anyone who is having a bad day: here is a video of my little brother's reaction every time i come home and surp…

    "It was strange to see my video go viral because I wasn't expecting it at all," she told BuzzFeed News.

    She said the first video was the one where David throws his book bag at her in surprise because he didn't know she was picking him up.

    Evans said: "It was one of the very first times that he had absolutely no idea that I was coming home.

    "I was there to get him off the bus and hid behind my mom so he couldn't see me."

    Evans said that she started filming her brother a year and a half ago.


    She also said she "decided to start filming his reactions because I wanted to remember those moments and because my friends love seeing him."

    She said she showed David the video and he loved it. He said "hey, that's me!".


    Evans said her parents didn't know she posted the video until she told them that she accidentally made herself and David go viral.

    "My parents have been shocked at the number of people who have seen and responded to the video but they have loved seeing the positive impact it has made."

    People are completely heart-warmed by the video.

    Evans said the responses to the video have been amazing.

    @thejessevans I could watch this a million times! Sweetest thing ever 💕

    "People have been so happy to see the relationship that I have with David and how genuinely happy we always are to see each other."

    "So many people have reached out to me telling me their stories of working or being related to children with disabilities," she added.

    @thejessevans Just lovely! Hello to both of you from my brother and I! 😄

    @thejessevans And this is why I'm studying to become a special education teacher...look how happy💗 I picked the best profession

    @thejessevans Aren't little brothers the best??

    People have also called the video pure.

    Evans said she thinks "it is very important to treat children and people with disabilities just as you would treat other people."


    Evans said, "I think if there was a message to give to people from this video is to just love on people."

    "I think love is something we could all use a little bit more of."

    She added, "They're just like us and if you love on them, they will fill your entire world with so much joy."
