Elderly Man With Disability Cries as Flight Attendant Kneels Down to Feed Him

This photo touched the hearts of millions.

An act of kindness done with utmost sincerity can touch and warm even the coldest of hearts. And for the people who desperately need help, a kind gesture—no matter how grand or small it is—may already mean the world to them.

So, when a flight attendant helped an elderly, physically challenged man aboard a passenger jet in China, the man, the rest of the passengers who witnessed the act, and millions of other people on the internet were moved to tears.

On December 8, Mr. Niu and his wife were on an HU7302 domestic flight from Zhengzhou to Haikou in south China. Mr. Niu, who was a former professor of medicine, suffered a stroke, which left him half-paralyzed and wheelchair bound.

According to a reporter from People’s Daily, the couple were not flying first class, and the crew are not obliged to provide them with special treatment. However, a kind-hearted flight attendant named Fan Xuesong had Mr. Niu transferred to the front seat where it was more spacious. Also, there, it would be more convenient for him to go to the restroom. Unfortunately, his wife was not given a priority seat, so they had to sit separately.

During dinner, Ms. Fan noticed how Mr. Niu struggled to grasp the spoon in his hands. So she offered to help him.

Mr. Niu was deeply moved by her compassion and was not able to fight the tears from falling down his face.

“When I said I wanted to feed him, he suddenly felt touched and started to cry,” Ms. Fan said.

Mr. Niu was having difficulty chewing rice because of his condition, so the kind-hearted air hostess grabbed a box of noodles instead. He choked several times, but Ms. Fan patiently attended to him.

Mr. Niu cried even more.

Ms. Fan had to grab some tissue and wipe the tears off the elderly man’s face.

One of the passengers who witnessed the emotional incident took pictures and uploaded them on Weibo—a social media similar to Twitter. It instantly went viral and was shared by millions of people on the internet.

“Someone tried to take her photo and she asked them not to. I couldn’t help but cry as she helped me eat, blew my nose and wiped away my tears. I do not know the girls name but given the chance I would thank her again,” Mr. Niu told local reporters.

Miss Fan, who has been in service for 11 years, said, “The old man worked hard all his life, did contribute to society, we should be kind to him.”

The world surely needs more compassionate people like Ms. Fan, don’t you agree?

For parents, raising an adolescent must be trying. With all that vitality, (and raging hormones, of course) young people tend to become rebellious; they scream for independence. They want to grow up fast without knowing what adulthood truly meant and understanding the responsibilities that go with it. And if your children are currently in this phase, you understand why it leaves most parents feeling utterly scared and lost. They are torn between wanting their children to live their lives to the fullest and chaining their feet to their beds just to protect them from their erratic, somewhat destructive behaviors. What should parents do then?...

Wife Catches Cheating Husband, But the Reason Behind His Infidelity Will Leave You Torn

Can you give me one good reason, one acceptable explanation when it is okay to sleep with someone other than your spouse?

Can you give me one good reason, one acceptable explanation when it is okay to sleep with someone other than your spouse?

I’ve heard old couples say that there will come a time when your partner will be tempted to cheat on you no matter how great or perfect “you think” your marriage is. It is as if it’s bound to happen, and that men, in particular, couldn’t help it.

Infidelity is wrong and hurtful, but before we go on pointing our fingers and ranting about how it is their fault entirely, should we; women, first examine ourselves and give our partners or husbands a chance to tell us why they did it? Will we be ready to listen to whatever they have to say?...
