Thread: Small Gesture

    Small Gesture

    Found this on my Facebook Feed and wanted to share it.

    (A few days ago, a user on Reddit shared this image along with the description below. And we just had to share it with you

    "Heading home on the Q train yesterday when this young African American guy nods off on the shoulder of a Jewish man. The man doesn't move a muscle, just lets him stay there. After a minute, I asked the man if he wanted me to wake the kid up, but he shook his head and responded, 'He must have had a long day, let him sleep. We've all been there, right?'

    He was still sleeping soundly when I got off the train 20 minutes later.

    It was a small gesture, but a kind one.

    If only more people did more small things every day...
