Ehab, a man from Surrey, British Columbia, was recently sitting on the train when he witnessed “the most incredible display of humanity.” Within the crowded train car emerged a towering six-foot-five bald man who was clearly suffering from drug abuse and/or mental health issues. The man’s behavior was disconcerting for the other passengers; he was being very aggressive, his movements were erratic, and he was cursing and yelling loudly without provocation. He held a pen in his hand, which he easily could have used as a weapon.

While everyone sat in silence and fear — unsure of what to do or how to react — Ehab noticed a 70-year-old woman reach her hand out to the man. She held onto him tightly — and that’s when Ehab saw something absolutely incredible. The man instantly calmed down, kneeled down beside the old woman, and sat there with tears in his eyes. The woman knew he could have stabbed her with the pen in his hand, but she said it was more important to her that he didn’t feel alone.

Before the man walked off the train, he stood up and looked at the old woman. “Thanks, Grandma,” he said.

After snapping a photo of the touching moment (below) Ehab spoke to the woman about the incident. She revealed something that everyone should hear…
