This Syrian refugee saved a Canadian wedding

This viral story shows that despite all the darkness in the world, love will always triumph.

Over the weekend in Canada, a bride was getting ready for her wedding when her zipper broke. A bridesmaid left to get sewing supplies from the house next door. That house was hosting a group of Syrian refugees.

The bridal party was still struggling to fix a dress when there was a knock at the door. One of the refugees was an experienced tailor, and brought his sewing kit to help. The refugee and his son had arrived a mere four days ago, and they didn't speak one word of english.

Yet, they still volunteered their sparing resources to help out.

The wedding photographer posted the heartwarming story to her Facebook, and it's been shared thousands of times.

In the post, the photographer wrote:

Every weekend I take photos of people on the happiest days of their lives, and today one man who has seen some of the worst things our world has to offer came to the rescue.

I am so proud to live in Canada, a country who has opened our doors to refugees countless times. I'm in awe of the families who have welcomed these strangers into their homes and lives, and I'm inspired by the resilience of the Syrian people. We are truly blessed.

Her post has been received with an overwhelming amount of support. One person is giving a sewing machine to the Syrian family to help them get back on their feet. Another commented:

On behalf of the Syrians I would like to say thank you to every Canadian out there, the ones who welcomed us into their homes, the ones who smile at other Syrians across the street, the ones who make us feel welcomed and at home, and the ones who are filling our hearts with their nice words of empathy.

Hopefully, we can all learn a little something from this story about a needle and thread.
