A Little Act of Kindness

My commute home is usually very uneventful, with me passing the time by people watching out the window. Today however, was different. I bore witness to a simple act of kindness. My street car was stopped at King and Bathurst, and outside my window was a man laying next to a building in the foot or two of shade it provided. A woman in a long black winter coat stopped a couple feet away from him and slid off her backpack. The man sat up and the woman handed him a sandwich and then walked away. The man looked really greatful and I even saw him wipe his eyes.
Waking up, the first piece of news I heard today was about the suicide bombings of the Moscow subway. It was a really terrible thing to wake up to, and being able to see this gave me hope.
