A heartwarming story of New Yorkers coming together to combat hatred is going viral in america’s newsrooms. It occurred last night, Saturday, on the 1 train, where commuters were horrified to discover swastikas scrawled on every advertisement and every window.
The train was silent as everyone stared at each other, uncomfortable and unsure of what to do.
A witness posted on Facebook that one guy got up and said ‘hand sanitizer gets rid of Sharpie. We need alcohol.” He then got some tissues and got to work.
“I’ve never seen so many people simultaneously reach into their bags and pockets looking for tissues and Purell. Within about two minutes all the Nazi symbolism was gone,” the witness said.
