Kind Elderly Woman Lovingly Held The Hand Of Shouting Man On Train Until He Was Calm

While riding the sky train in Vancouver, Canada, Ehah Taha saw an elderly woman lovingly comfort a tall man who was shouting and yelling.

“I saw the most incredible display of humanity on the sky train,” Ehah shared in a post online.

While sitting in her seat, a large man around six feet five inches tall began yelling, cursing and shouting on the train. He was pacing back and forth, and his movements were “erratic,” so Ehah concluded that he must be suffering from either drug abuse or some sort of mental illness.

“A six foot five man, suffering from drug abuse and\or mental health issues, was being very aggressive on the bus with erratic movements, cursing, shouting, etc.”

As passengers stood by in fear for several minutes observing the man’s behavior and hearing him yelling, a loving elderly woman who was seated nearby reached out her hand and held the man’s hand. She held it and looked compassionately at him, and soon after the man sat down next to her, and calmed down… with tears in his eyes.

“While everyone sat scared, this one seventy year old woman reached out her hand, tightly gripping his hand until he calmed down, sat down silently, with eventual tears in his eyes.”

Ehah spoke with the woman afterwards and learned that she is 70-years-old, is a mother, and could sense that he just needed someone to lovingly connect with him.

“I spoke to the woman after this incident and she simply said, “I’m a mother and he needed someone to touch.” And she started to cry.”

“Don’t fear or judge the stranger on the bus: life does not provide equal welfare for all its residents.”

You are Loved.
