Suffering from health issues, the 6-foot, 5-inch man was angry, shouting and scaring everyone on the Vancouver, Canada, commuter train. But then one small gesture from a fellow rider changed everything.
An elderly woman reached out her hand to him and grabbed his hand. To everyone's surprise, he took her hand and not only calmed down, but also sat down beside her. He eventually had tears in his eyes, as he continued holding on tightly.
One commuter named Ehab Taha captured the touching moment on camera. Taha had the chance to speak to the woman afterward.
When asked why she reached out to him, she said, "I'm a mother and he needed someone to touch."
Sometimes, that act of kindness is really all you need.
Take a look at Taha's moving post below, which has since gone viral, and see for yourself.
