hands touching

DON’T Fear or Judge the Stranger on the Bus

I saw the most incredible display of humanity on the sky train.

DON'T Fear or Judge the Stranger on the BusA 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.

While everyone was 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.

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.
