On Wednesday night, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared an endearing message for a “Make-a-Wish” child on Instagram.
He captioned it:
Taitusi this message is for you. Make a Wish just called me and I wish I could be there with you in Hawaii right now. Even at 13yrs old you’re already way stronger than I’ll ever be. Ever. Even though we’ve never met, I can already tell you’re one of the coolest and most amazing kids I’ve ever talked to like this. I just want you to know how amazing and special of young boy you are. You inspire every single person around you right now. Including me. God bless you and your family and yes I’m gonna go crazy on rice crispy treats this weekend for my cheat meal in your honor.
In the video, the wrestler explains that the 13-year-old’s wish was to meet him. But unfortunately, he is filming in Las Vegas and is unable to travel to Hawaii to make Taitusi’s wish come true. However, The Rock shared that he’s already learned a lot about the teen and wanted to let him know that they have much in common, including a love of chicken, Rice Krispy treats and the color red.
“I want you to know even though I’m not able to see you and be with you, you’re already one of the most amazing kids I have ever spoken to. You are stronger than I will ever be, ever be,” he said before choking up. “Stay strong.”
The Rock then signed off his post with “Alofa atu,” which means “love you” in Samoan.
