Heartwarming picture of elderly couple teaching man how to tie his tie at Atlanta subway station goes viral


This picture of an elderly man teaching a young stranger how to tie his tie while waiting for the train has gone viral.
The older man's wife spotted the young man sitting on a subway bench in a shirt and suit trousers, but struggling to tie his tie.
She encouraged her elderly husband, in a fleece and flat cap, to 'come over here' and help him.
The Facebook photograph has been liked more than 300,000 times and shared nearly 130,000 times since it was uploaded yesterday.

It was uploaded by Redd Desmond Thomas, from Atlanta, who spotted the compassionate moment at the city’s Lindbergh Center.
‘The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie,’ he explained in the post.
‘The woman in the red coat noticed, and asked “Do you know how to tie it properly?”
The young guy said “No ma’am”.


‘She taps her husband and says “Come here and teach this young man how to tie his tie.” The older gentleman moved without hesitation and game him a step-by-step tutorial; then afterward the older gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it.’

Thomas added: ‘I love this!’
One Facebook user concurred, writing: ‘I absolutely love this! It’s the small things that make the biggest impact. Finally, some positivity!’
Another added: ‘Imagine how many lives we can touch and differences we all could make if we just sacrificed a few minutes of our time for someone in need. It goes beyond putting up a country’s flag and mourning the dead… it starts in our very own communities.’

I still remember being taught the Double Windsor by Joe Czerchovich many years ago. Classy guy.

It is certainly nice to see an uplifting and positive story. God knows we have more than our share of negative stuff to read. Very nice.
