A photo was recently shared on Facebook that’s captured the hearts of thousands of people worldwide. The photo features a man holding hands with an old lady.

The caption of the photo, which is courtesy of Carl Manley, says, “A couple of months ago, an elderly lady asked me to walk her home because she was scared she was going to slip on the ice. We’ve become friends and now I walk her home almost everyday.”

The photo is striking and getting attention because it seems to capture what love could look like because the man in the photo is young and African American, while the lady is elderly and white.

Comments on the photo have been overwhelmingly positive.

“I love this story,” a commenter said. “There is love on so many levels. That wonderful lady, who still has faith in humanity reached out to a stranger for help. That man responded in kindness and compassion. The result? A loving friendship.”
