Picture of Man Carrying an Older Woman Up Some Arena Stairs is Capturing Hearts

This photo of a compassionate firefighter lifting an older woman up some stadium steps is also lifting spirits across social media.

Shayla and Thomas Harwell were attending a Brad Paisley concert at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo last week when she noticed the woman struggling to get to her seat.

Since her husband is a firefighter for the Hardin Volunteer Fire Department north of Houston, Texas, Shayla pointed the woman out to Thomas and suggested he lend a hand.

Thomas immediately leapt to his feet and helped the woman to her seat.

After the show was over, Thomas saw the woman was too tired to get back up the stadium steps once more – so he simply scooped her into his arms and carried her the rest of the way.

Thomas, on the other hand, has shrugged off the media attention and said he was simply doing his duty as a human being.

“If you’re alive and breathing, you shouldn’t need an excuse to help someone else,” Thomas told the news outlet. “If they need help, help them.”

Ever day, in every way, I see real men going out of their way to help their fellow human.

And, this fellow exhibits the best in what I hope to be.

Noblesse oblige

We are all given gifts and we have to will to share them with out fellow humans.

Dona Nobis Pacem
