That’s what one person said about this scene.
It’s nothing earth shattering.
Just a simple act of kindness.
A young employee from a Hardee’s in Knoxville Tennessee.
Helping an elderly woman back to her car.
It was posted on the Hardee’s Facebook page.
David Yardley took the picture and this was his caption:
It really was just a kind moment to witness between your worker and an elderly lady.
I came through the drive through and went across the street and just happened to look over at Hardees as I pumped my gas and happened to see this as it took place.
Your worker had been cleaning the glass when the (elderly woman) started out to her ride.
He stopped what he was doing and took her by the hand and helped her across the sidewalk and parking lot to her ride.
It just really spoke to me, I guess since so much negative media lately has been around the race card.
Black and white young and old all come together in this picture.
I watched as he continued to help her until she was in the car and left.
I admire this young man and appreciate his kindness.

The young man’s name is Kailen Young.
And Hardee’s ended up giving him $1000 to show their appreciation.
Afterword he told WBIR-TV:
“It’s just a normal thing for me.
(The reaction has) been very humbling, very heartwarming.”
Bobbi Clare is the woman he helped.
She told WBIR-TV:
“I felt a little touch of heaven, that kindness and goodness in the world.
We need that so much, don’t we?”
We sure do.
