Man Snaps Pic of Stranger Escorting Women at Target—When I Saw Who’s Under His Umbrella? CHILLS

Following weeks of tragedy and heartbreaking division in our country, one powerful photo is erasing color lines and restoring a little hope in humanity.

A man named Deepak Saini was leaving Target when he noticed a remarkable act by a stranger that stopped him in his tracks.

His viral Facebook post reads:

“I was about to leave the Kenner, LA Target when I noticed a major downpour outside. There were quite a few people waiting out the storm. Then I noticed a kind gentleman who turn by turn, escorted women, mothers and their kids, to their cars under the shelter of his umbrella. I’m sure he was busy and had his own family to return to. But in that moment, it didn’t matter that he was black and the woman in this picture was white. It was one human helping another. Right now we seem so focused on race and are letting ourselves be painfully divided. Kindness is something we all need to give to each other right now and let this man be an example.”

“When I saw this, I thought, people need to see that,” said Saini. “There are people that are kind on both sides of the color line, and we need to focus more on how we can help each other and be there for each other, rather than what sets us apart.”

ABC tracked down the Good Samaritan, James Varnado, and he left America with some beautiful words of inspiration:

Umbrella? CHILLS

He didn’t know he was being watched from the Target window…

“People are people. Help. It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter what you do. It doesn’t matter if you’re the richest person in the world or the poorest person in the world. Somebody needs help? Help ’em.”“I didn’t expect anybody to show it or get recognition or anything like that,” James added.  “I just did what I always do.”
