Woman’s Touching Act Of Kindness At Gas Station Goes Viral
Nicole recently stopped to fill her gas tank on her way to work in Apple Valley, Minnesota. It was a particularly freezing day, and the temperature dropped under 10 degrees. While waiting in her car, she noticed a middle-aged man standing at the pump, crying. “I began to wonder what happened with this man and as I got out of my car and looked at him my heart felt like it stopped,” Nicole wrote on Facebook. Then she realized what the man was wearing, there in the frigid cold: flip flops with raggedy socks.

“I didn’t even think and I went up to the man and said ‘sir is something the matter?’ He looked at me and I could tell he was on the verge of giving up because he didn’t even try to conceal his tears when he said ‘I can’t even provide for my family.’”
