The Beauty and the Beast star sent out love to his household buddy Max Schachter after the mourning dad checked out a poem by his child Alex, who was eliminated in the Parkland school shooting recently.

Max appeared on CNN‘s telecasted city center on Wednesday night to check out the 14- year-old’s free-verse poem he penned simply 2 weeks prior to his death at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
Watching the phenomenon on TELEVISION, Gad was gutted over seeing his bereaved buddy checking out the departed teenager’s effective words– which, paradoxically, had to do with the unpredictability of life.
He shared on Twitter:
Watching our household buddy #maxschachter read his child Alex’s poem tonight is nearly excessive for me to bear. Max, we are all with you. We enjoy you. Your strength is unbelievable. Your child’s poetry is light in this darkness. #alexschachter

” Life resembles a roller coaster/it has some down/sometimes and ups you can take it really quick or sluggish/ it might be tough to breathe at times/but you need to press yourself and keep going.
Your bar is your safety/it’s like your household and friends/You hang on tight and you do not let go/But often you may toss your hands up/Because your family and friends will constantly be with you.
Just like that bar keeping you safe at all times/ it might be excessive for you at times/the twists, the turns, the benefit downs/But you return up/you keep downing along/ ultimately it pertains to a stop/you will not understand when or how/but you will understand that’ll be the time to obtain off and begin anew/Life resembles a roller rollercoaster.”
