Subway Act of Kindness Goes Viral

A photo of a Chasidic Jewish couple sitting next to a Muslim woman nursing her baby on the New York City subway has gone viral on Facebook.

The post has received some 62,000 likes and nearly 48,000 shares since it was posted on Sunday by Jackie Summers, an African-American who describes himself as a Taoist.

Summers captioned the photo: “A Taoist (me) gives up his seat so a Hasidic couple could sit together. They scoot over so a Muslim mother could sit and nurse her baby, on Easter Sunday.”

“This is my America: people letting people be people.”
