Hopefully This Story Will Influence Others When They See a Stranger Who Needs a Hand
While waiting for the train in Atlanta, GA, an elderly couple noticed a young man having difficulty tying his tie. What happened next may surprise you.
"The young guy sitting down was struggling with his tie. 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 to this side [her right side; he was standing on her left side] and teach this young man how to tie his tie." The older gentleman moved without hesitation [almost a reflex response] and gave him a step-by-step tutorial; then - afterward - the elder gentleman watched the young gentleman repeat the steps and show him that he had it. I was some distance away (but close enough to hear the exchange), and got even closer to snap this candid photo of the tutorial in progress before hopping on the train. I LOVE THIS!"

Because tying a tie is an invaluable life lesson
Taking just a few minutes to teach someone a quick skill may seem inconsequential, but it can actually make a huge difference in someone's life.
