Kailen Young was just doing his job washing windows when he decided to help an elderly woman walk to her car. Someone took a picture, and the rest is viral history.

“I felt a little touch of heaven, that kindness and goodness in the world,” Clare (woman helped) told the WBIR of the teen’s help. “We need that so much, don’t we?”

That’s great. The man who took the picture had this to say:

“It spoke volumes. Black and white, male and female, young and old, all came together in one photo,” Yardley told HuffPost. “It was just a tender moment. … At the end of the day, it was a young person having enough compassion to help to help an older person.”
