This photo was snapped by skytrain commuter Ehab Taha. I can’t help but think of Ian Maclaren’s (Or Plato, depending on who you ask) quote: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” This photo, this instance, in a fast paced world that flashes so quickly before our eyes that we seldom stop to appreciate it, is the perfect example of the sincerity of that quote.
When asked why she reached out to hold this mans hand, she simply said
“I’m a mother and he needed someone to touch.”
We can all learn a little something from this incredible story.
