Heartwarming photo of strangers having lunch together at McDonald's goes viral

A photo of two strangers dining in McDonald’s has caught the attention of netizens. The man and the woman in the photo who just met that day became a source of inspiration because of their unusual and spontaneous acquaintance.

Amanda Marquell Craft was sitting inside a McDonald’s in Noblesville when she witnessed a rare but heartwarming occurrence. She spotted a lonely-looking woman approaching a man eating by himself. The woman asked if she could sit with the man for lunch. The man smiled and obliged. 

A SPONTANEOUS CONNECTION

During the 15 minutes the two strangers dined together, Craft observed how easily the two got along. They laughed and truly interacted despite seeming to have nothing in common. “They couldn’t be more different,” according to Craft who took a photo of the scene and shared it on Facebook. 

Craft was prompted to take the photo after realizing how simple it was to show kindness to others and make a connection. She also knew the two people were worthy of a shoutout for inspiring her.

SPREADING THE WORD

“Shoutout to this guy!,” Craft began to write in her caption and continued. 

“This elderly lady (seemed to be a little lonely) came up to him and asked if she could sit with him. Without hesitation, this guy said “of course”. My friends and I watched him introduce himself and shake her hand.”

“They talked and laughed together like they were friends. They didn’t know each other, and they couldn’t be more different. But today they shared a meal together and it touched our hearts”

Because of what she witnessed, Craft believes that good still exists in the world and kindness is always a choice.  Thus, she added the hashtags “#thereisgood” and “choosekind” at the end of her caption.  

THE KINDNESS BETWEEN A POLICE OFFICER AND A HOMELESS MAN 

Indeed, kindness between strangers still exists in this world. A police officer proved this when he lent a helping hand to a homeless man who was scheduled for a job interview. 

Florida police officer Tony Carlson was compelled to help a homeless man, Phil, when he spotted him struggling to shave.  He assisted in fixing the man’s clipper and even shaved Phil’s beard for him. He learned later that Phil was trying to look neat for a job interview at a local McDonald’s. Thanks to officer Carlson’s help, Phil eventually landed the job. 

THE KINDNESS BETWEEN A POLICE OFFICER AND AN OLD LADY

In Michigan, another police officer went viral when he helped out an old lady buying gas at a Petrol station. Officer Todd Bing didn't only assist 75-year-old Delores Marrotta in pumping gas, he also gave her an extra $20 worth of gas because she initially intended to purchase $3 worth.  Bing discovered Marrotta was struggling to make ends meet after her husband died. The $3 she used to buy gas was her last money. When their story went viral, a GoFundMe account was established for Marrotta and it surprisingly raised over $27,000. Bing's act of kindness certainly went a long way.
