More often than not people are exposed to hatred, racism and violence- and these stories often make headlines.
However, every now and then people come along to prove that compassion, love and peace still exist in communities across the globe. These people inspire hope in others and their kindness becomes a chain reaction.
Recently, a couple of men went viral on social media after they opened their hearts and wallet to a lady, who had been having a tough time.
However, little did they know how much she needed their help and kindness. Two men saw a woman counting down pennies to pay for her petrol.
So, they decided to give her money to help her out. The woman immediately broke down in tears and told them something they did not expect- she recently lost her husband.
The emotional woman touched their hearts in such a manner that one of the men even started to cry.
A video of the incident was shared on Twitter on Thursday and it sparked quite the reaction, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Social media user @sjpdevine commented: "When the guy said 'It’s what’s right, we’ve got to stick together' that sums up the world I want to live in. Not one drowning in hatred and suffering. Be proud guys, you did great."
