Brian Startare’s act of kindness shown towards his son Braydon happened rather unexpectedly. However, his actions set the gold standard for all dads to follow if their child ever seems to hit an unexpected rough patch.

Braydon, who was participating in his South Jersey school’s end of the year talent show, caught some unexpected stage fright as he began his comedy routine, which he worked on with his dad a few weeks prior to the show.

It was then when Brian sensed Braydon might not be able to go on. He had to act fast.

“I knew he was struggling. I just thought he wasn’t going to finish. I knew he wanted to, and I just didn’t want him to be disappointed,” said Brian, who stood by the side of the stage encouraging Braydon.

What followed was nothing short of inspiring.

Brian, a former Philadelphia sports talk radio show host and current public address announcer at Saint Joseph’s University, stopped filming Braydon, promptly joined him on stage, put his arm around his son, and said “We’re gonna do this together.” What was once a solo act became a comedy duo, and the two received several rounds of applause. In fact, the gesture was so seamless on Brian’s behalf that many in the audience assumed his arrival was simply part of the show.

In regards to his act of kindness, the elder Startare was modest, claiming it was something any father would do to help their child.

“Be a good dad. Be a good parent. Set good examples. Raise good people,” he said.

I think we can all agree on that!
