We could use more heartwarming stories like this!

The story of a teenage grocery store worker helping a 96-year-old man in the United Kingdom has gone viral – shared more than 70,000 times and liked more than 250,000 times! It’s also made a social media star out of shy 18-year-old Christian Trouesdale.

The picture of Trouesdale carrying groceries and holding the hand of the elderly gentleman as he walked him home from the grocery store has warmed hearts around the world,  from Dubai to the U-S.

Trouesdale says he’s ‘blown away’ by the response and that he was just doing something “he would normally do.”

Thank you for being you, Christian!
