A woman posts a video of a man sharing his phone with a little boy and the video goes viral. So far, it’s had 1.5 million views with almost 2,000 comments.
“What I witnessed today on the train. I almost cried y’all,” Kia Tatiyana Davis wrote when she posted the video on her Facebook page.
The footage shows a man occupying his time with his smartphone on a New York City subway while a little boy sitting next to him looks on. After a while, the man smiles as the boy makes some comments. Then he looks at him and hands him the phone. Watch the exchange on Davis’ post:
Most of the comments noted the man’s kindness and the boy’s cuteness. Some just posted emojis and GIFs to show their approval of the man’s benevolent actions in a culture that isn’t always kind.
“God bless this man sweet,” commented Lillian M Makeke.
“Wish people would be more like him,” posted Jhon Jie.
“This is priceless,” wrote Karen Etin Usoh.
