This real story is somewhat sad that what a world this place has become but more heart warming because its a win of humanity.

A 14 year old student of Texas School was arrested because school officials mistook the clock the kid made as a bomb. The boy claimed that he made the clock to impress his teacher but when he showed it to her she mistook it.

I built a clock to impress my teacher, but when I showed it to her she thought it was a threat to her. So it was really sad that she took a wrong impression of it, and I got arrested for it later that day,” he added.

Ahmad was released later and the charges were dropped by Police officials later when they discovered the real story. However, school maintained the 3 day suspension for him. Feeling awful? Don’t be because this is the part I referred as the silver lining for humanity.

While this story broke out press reporters reached Ahmad’s place to cover the story. Ahmad’s family offered pizza for the reporters waiting outside their house and broke Internet with their awfully nice hospitality which is rare to be seen.

Wait, the goodness does not end here because what happened next will make your heart warm. There was flood of support from unthinkable corners for young Ahmad. President Barack Obama invited Ahmad to White House asking to bring his clock.

Mark Zuckerberg did not waste time and handed over an open invitation to Ahmad and asked him to drop by Facebook HQ

The support for Ahmed is pouring in from all corners and #IStandwithAhmed was among the top trends on Twitter. Ahmad thanked everyone on his twitter account which his family setup after this incident.

Well, all I would say is that the boy wanted to impress a single soul (his teacher) but destiny has some other plans for him. This clock is surely a great invention for Ahmed which has unlocked giant tech firms door for him, received invitation from the president Barack Obama. #IStandwithAhmed keep building.
