Ready to have your faith in humanity restored?

The photo of a 21-year old student in Canada named Godfrey Cuotto has gone viral… for all the right reasons.

It features Cuotto sitting alongside a special needs passenger on a bus, someone later identified as Robert, a man who suffers from Cerebral Palsy‎.

Robert grew overwhelmed by the crowd on the bus and reached out to shake Cuotto’s hand. 

And when Robert wouldn’t let go, even placing his head on Cuotto’s shoulder, the young man just let it be.

"I just allowed it, like what am I going to do?" Cuotto told HuffPost Canada. "Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else’s needs above yours."

Amen, right?

This photo is reminiscent of the one from late 2013 in which a stranger allowed a man to fall asleep on his shoulder while riding the subway.
