Via WGB: A Random Act of Kindness...

With all the craziness that is the world we live in today, it is great to see a random kind gesture take place and restores my faith in humanity just a little.

Pictured above: "This heartwarming picture of an elderly man teaching a young stranger how to tie his tie while waiting for the train has gone viral.

The older man's wife spotted the young man sitting on a subway bench in a shirt and suit trousers, but struggling to tie his tie.

It was uploaded by Redd Desmond Thomas, from Atlanta, who spotted the compassionate moment at the city’s Lindbergh Center.

‘The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie,’ he explained in the post.

‘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 encouraged her elderly husband, in a fleece and flat cap, to 'come over here' and help him.

‘She taps her husband and says “Come here and teach this young man how to tie his tie.” The older gentleman moved without hesitation and game him a step-by-step tutorial; then afterward the older gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it.’

Thomas added: ‘I love this!’

One Facebook user concurred, writing: ‘I absolutely love this! It’s the small things that make the biggest impact. Finally, some positivity!’

Another added: ‘Imagine how many lives we can touch and differences we all could make if we just sacrificed a few minutes of our time for someone in need.

The Facebook photograph has been liked more than 300,000 times and shared nearly 130,000 times since it was uploaded yesterday."
