Facebook user, Redd Desmond Thomas, posted the above photo on his Facebook page and it has since gone viral.  The photo shows an elderly man helping a young man tie his tie.  Thomas was touched by this moment between absolute strangers, and he just had to share it.

The photo was posted with the following caption, “The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie. The woman in the red coat noticed, and asked ‘Do you know how to tie it properly?’ The young guy said ‘No ma’am.’ She taps her husband and says ‘Come to this side [her right side; he was standing on her left side] and teach this young man how to tie his tie.’ The older gentleman moved without hesitation [almost a reflex response] and gave him a step-by-step tutorial; then – afterward – the elder gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it. I was some distance away (but close enough to hear the exchange), and got even closer to snap this candid photo of the tutorial in progress before hopping on the train. I LOVE THIS!”

Don’t you wish you saw more kindness like this in the world?
