Jack Higgins is a high school student in New York. He has a severe form of autism that makes him very sensitive to noises. When it came to graduate high school, he wanted to walk the stage for graduation but was worried.

His principal came up with an idea. He asked all the students and guests to be completely silent and just softly golf clap. So basically a whole gymnasium of students stayed quiet for 4 minutes.

It was touching to see and the principal said it was the most remarkable thing he has seen in his 31-year career. Check out the video below.
