Guy on New York City Subway Train Gives Shirt to Homeless Man

What a man did on the subway train is definitely one of humanity’s shining moments.

In a big city like New York — where people are busy dealing with stress from their demanding jobs and their fast-paced lives — it can be difficult to capture random acts of kindness. Just recently, though, one passenger in the city’s subway train witnessed a heartwarming event that could inspire others to be more sensitive to the needs of those around them.

The subway passenger took a video of an encounter between a guy on the train and a homeless man.

This is one of humanity's shining moments.

This is one of humanity's shining moments.

The video shows a near-empty subway train. A homeless man is one of the passengers. He is shown sitting quietly. He has no sh‏‏irt on.

After a few moments, another passenger — a guy who’s built as if he could be a bouncer from a club — is seen taking something from his bag. It turns out to be a shirt. He then approaches the homeless man.

The muscled guy is seen presenting the white T-shirt to the homeless man. He says something but not all his words are clear. We only get, “Here you go.” He then hands the T-shirt yo the homeless man.

However, when the muscled guy sees that the homeless man has difficulty raising his arms. He goes over to him and puts the shirt on the homeless man.

But that’s not all the man did.

After he put the T-shirt on the homeless man, he goes back to where he left his bag and then proceeds to take out a beanie from it. He then goes over to the homeless man and then puts the beanie on his head.

He gave away his beanie, too!

The homeless man is seen looking, perhaps, a bit bewildered. The muscled guy just casually goes back to his seat and the video ends.

As South African social rights activist said, “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.”

This video is worth watching over and over again.

This Story of a Man Who Treated 10 Soldiers to Lunch Will Surely Touch Your Heart

This heartwarming story proves that when you give kindness, it is given back a manifold.

By

We have always been told that what comes around goes around, or that we reap what we sow. So when one man onboard a plane bought lunch for 10 soldiers who couldn't afford it in-flight, his act of kindness spread through the other passengers. He may have done one act of selflessness for those heroes of the nation, but to them he will be remembered as a hero of kindness too.

The line that gets me tearing up is this one, "A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life. That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it."

Well I will let you read the rest of this heartwarming story below, and keep some tissues nearby for those tears. ...

Defunct Train Station In Japan Kept Operating For Only One Passenger

This story only shows how Japan values each and every person in their land! So touching!

A country's legislative body makes laws based on the needs of the majority and not just for the need of one citizen. But for Japan, this is not the case.

For years now, the defunct train station in Kami-Shirataki, which is located at the northernmost island of Hokkaido, continues to operate for only just one passenger: a high-school girl who is yet to finish her secondary education.

The reason why the government decided to do that will truly warm your heart....

After 27 Rejections, Dr. Seuss Almost Burned His Unpublished Book. Fortunately, He Didn’t!

Experiencing 27 rejections must have been terribly frustrating.

James Lee Burke once said “There's nothing like rejection to make you do an inventory of yourself.” However, in the case of well-loved children’s book writer and illustrator Dr. Seuss, it wasn’t a simple, single rejection. In fact, he got turned down 27 times by different publishers before he was able to get his first book published. Vanguard Press eventually gave his work a shot.

Born Theodor Seuss Geisel, he later adopted the pen name Dr. Seuss during his university studies at Dartmouth College and the University of Oxford. He initially worked doing illustrations for advertising firms. He also drew political cartoons for PM, a New York-based newspaper, and produced a few short films as an animator for the United States Army.

It took 27 rejections before Dr Seuss' first book “And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street” was published in 1937.
