When a woman went shopping with her mom and grandmother in 2017, she didn't expect to see something that would melt her heart, but she did. In a world often filled with hate and violence, she witnessed a beautiful moment of true humanity and care.

Mandy Sue Prince watched an encounter between an elderly gentleman and a Walmart employee unfold, and it gave her chills. The worker halted her job and went above and beyond to help the shopper find a pair of shoes.
