Tears Are Flowing As Grooms’ Autistic Brother Gives His Best Man Speech
Sam Waldron, who is 23 years old, delivered one of the most emotionally moving wedding speeches ever seen on the internet. The speech was for his brother Jonah and his bride, Maddy. It was definitely an experience worth sharing.
The video went viral after being posted to several social media sites. Everyone present will agree that this best man speech ranks among the most moving they have ever heard.
In just a few days, Sams’ TikTok account amassed over three million views and 400,000 comments. This beloved sibling is deserving of all the praise and attention he is getting at the moment.
Sam was a little nervous, as the video shows. As he talked, both his voice and his hands shook. But when he starts by saying he has autism, which makes him nervous in social situations like this, he surely got everyones’ attention. All of the people there cheered to show their approval. They understand how difficult and challenging it would be for Sam to be in front of a lot of people.
But Sam is going to have the courage to do it. He said, “But there is one person in the world I would do this for. Jonah Waldron. Check that. There are two people in the world I would do this for – Maddy and Jonah Waldron.”
He is the groom’s brother but the first thing Sam talked about was his love for Maddy and how much she meant to him. Sam said, “You have all the makings of a great sister. Just like my sister Clara, my whole family loves you. When you are around, they light up.” He went on to express his gratitude for the caring sister she has always been to him.
Also, he admitted that even though he gets nervous and uncomfortable around a lot of people, he never feels anxious when he’s around Maddy because she “give[s] him peace.”
In addition, he spoke highly of his sibling Jonah. The entire crowd was aware that this speech would be particularly moving, especially now that he was talking about his brother. Everyone present is aware of Jonah’s and his brother’s deep bond as well as the brotherly affection they have for one another. Jonah truly loves his brother and that goes the same for Sam.
Sam said, “Jonah, growing up as your little brother, you never looked down on me. You lifted me up and looked out for me. You always reminded me that being different is a real strength, not a weakness. You were, and are, patient and kind. You love me just as I am.”
Sam kept on talking, telling more funny and touching stories about his time with Jonah and Maddy. He definitely had a lot of funny and interesting stories with him, experiences that would make people laugh and cry at the same time. When Sam was done with his speech, the crowd stood up and gave him a standing ovation.
Everyone just loved how honest he was about how he felt about his brother and sister-in-law. And it seems like he only has really good things to tell.
Sam might not know it but he did not only make his brother and sister-in-law tear up that day but everyone present as well as those who have seen a video of his speech online.
