Being kind is the best policy. It is because of people who are willing to go an extra mile for the well-being of others that this world is a better place.

A photo from the Florida State University football game which took place in November of last years has gone viral for all the right reasons.

A woman named Britney Howard was a spectator at the game. She was hoping to have some enjoyable time, but ended up getting even more than just a fun day at the game. At one moment, Howard noticed an incredible sight. A young woman was having troubles climbing the steps and finding her seat, but an angel in the form of an officer stepped in.

Deputy C. Hall approached the girl’s mother and asked if it was okay for him to carry her daughter to her seat.

“I just wanted to take a minute and recognize Deputy C. Hall that was working the Florida State football game Saturday night. This young girl that has difficulty walking was struggling to get up the steps to her seat so he asked her and her mother if they would be okay with him carrying her. He walked at least 30 rows up to her seat and did not hesitate one bit in offering to do so,” Howard wrote along with the photo she shared on Facebook.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office was proud of the deputy’s kind deed and praised his action.

Thank you, Deputy C. Hall. People like you restore our faith in humanity.
