Lifestyle| | By Margo Gothelf
A simple act of kindness can never be too small.
Meghann Shaw was shopping at a Walmart in Biloxi, Mississippi when she noticed an employee going the extra mile. The employee was guiding a blind man around the store, helping him during his shopping trip.
“While in there I noticed a store associate and an elderly blind man walking hand in hand,” Shaw wrote on Facebook. “She escorted him throughout the store. With all the hate in the world she gave love.”
Shaw’s post about the kind act has gone viral on Facebook and has been liked over 18,000 times. Many people on social media thought the act was incredible. Some users shared their thoughts by commenting on the picture.
“Love that, and we should all be willing to go above and beyond to help like she did,” one user wrote.
“This is the Mississippi I know and love and why I’m so proud to call the coast my home,” another user shared. “With so much negativity and hate in this world it is so refreshing and heartwarming to see compassionate people helping others. Thank you to the young woman who selflessly helped this gentleman and to who took the time to share this moment.”
Hopefully, Shaw’s photo will remind people to be kind to one another.
“Without the man seeing her, she showed him pure compassion and love. Be the change you wish to see in the world,” Shaw wrote on Facebook.
