An African woman identified as Iphie Alfred recently treated members of the internet community to a touching narration of her encounter with a stranger.
According to Alfred, she was on her way to market when she saw an elderly man sobbing in front of a police station. She said she was tempted to keep moving and mind her business, however, was prompted to do otherwise after a man she was riding with called on the elderly man to man up and stop crying.
Alfred said she approached the individual, hugged him and joined him in crying, even before finding out the reason for his tears. She narrated how passers-by kept staring at them until a third party drove past and stopped his car.
Upon the arrival of the third individual, the elderly man opened up about the reason for his tears.
"His wife is late and left two little children for him, one of the kids was seriously ill and he was trying to make some money to buy pills from the local store when police stopped him and seized his bike for refusing to give them some money," Alfred narrated.
Explaining the touching encounter with the man further, the kind-hearted woman explained how she and the third individual who had joined them managed to retrieve the old man’s bike from the police officers and also gave him funds to take care of his ailing son.
She ended her narration by calling out to other men reading her post that it is okay to cry and feel bad because they are simply humans after all.
