A kind jogger has left social media users in complete awe after taking off his shoes and handing them to a homeless man. His rare act of kindness has truly touched people because seeing such deeds are so rare these days.
After his act of kindness, the Good Samaritan walked away barefoot on Sunday, August 18.
In a viral Twitter video shared by Antonella212, the ageing chap, who was trekking in the busy New York streets, walked with no care as he let his feet touch the dusty pavement.
The kind jogger, who thought no one was watching, had been running before bumping into a homeless guy seated on the streets.
He then stood for a while, took off his shoes and handed them over to the man, who sat on the cold floor.
The pair had a brief exchange before the jogger walked away with nothing on his feet.
The video left people in tears and what most netizens said is they had a new-found respect for humanity.
Most people sang his praises and hoped that one day, they would get a chance to follow in his footsteps.
To them, kindness is not dead, instead it is just rare.
