This Simple Act Of Kindness Proves The World’s Not Always So Bad


After the absolute shitstorm of terrible news from over the weekend, it’s nice to finally have something positive to bring you.

This photo was uploaded to Facebook. The simple act of kindness it features serves to remind us that there is still a collective good existing in the world.

The caption reads:

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!

If we all helped each other like this, the world would be a much better place.
