- A car guard has gone viral for all the right reasons
- With a lot of patience and love, he walks an elderly lady home every Friday
- A photo of the kind gesture has gone viral on SA social media, reaching over 26 000 reactions
More often than not we focus on all the bad things happening in South Africa. But, it's time to shift our focus to the good and the Facebook group #ImStaying provides us all with a platform to do so.
A woman, Lisa Webber-Harris Evans, posted a feel-good story on the popular social media group. Evans revealed that every Friday, she sees a car guard walking an elderly lady home at her own, slow pace.
Evan decided to take a photo of the beautiful gesture and share it online.
The post read:
"Every week on a Friday on my way back to the office I see these two lovely people walking back from Spar to heart.
"You have to walk up quite a steep hill to get to where they are. The little old lady holds onto the car guard's arm the whole way and they walk at a snail's pace to her home. Absolutely love his patience and care."
The story gave South Africans the feels and the unidentified car guard was dubbed a hero and angel.
Noreen Volker commented:
"Bless him. And, it's amazing that we get to see the good side of Africa. It costs nothing to be kind, respect and love."
Beth Meyer wrote:
"Beautiful example of genuine love for our neighbours."
Cindy Connold said:
"How absolutely glorious! I just love the people in our country."
Connie Wait added:
"Thank you kindly for taking such good care of the elderly. May God richly bless this kind gentleman."
It's not the first time a car guard restored our faith in humanity. Briefly.co.za previously reported that a car watch was hailed a hero after returning a woman's lost handbag.
Solomon, who is based at Wonderboom shopping centre in Pretoria, found a handbag that a woman had forgotten in a Woolworths trolley recently.
An honest Solomon handed it over to the Woolworths store, where the woman later found it intact when she returned.
