What a great example of kindness! The photo below has gone viral:

Louis Jordan, 35, was photographed on April 27 in Houston holding an umbrella over an elderly woman who was waiting in the heat to be picked up by a paratransit service. The image reportedly has been shared thousands of times since.

“I’ve been down and out myself,” Jordan told Fox 7 Austin. “It doesn’t take a lot. I just do what I can do.”

They got to know each other during the wait:
 “We laugh, joke,” he said. “She’s in a book club. Come to find out, she likes pork chops.”

Jordan’s mother, Bernette Botts says she’s seen this selfless side of her son before. He rescued his grandmother, who was trapped during Hurricane Harvey.

“She was trapped inside, four feet of water, no power,” Botts said. “He called me back from my mom’s and said, ‘I got her.'”

Louis says there are ways we can help others every day.

He says these acts of kindness, big and small, are reminders that there’s still good in the world.

His mother took the picture of her son and a police officer that had come over to check on the situation.

Jordan told Fox 7 Austin that he lives his life inspired by God and the teachings of the church.

“I pray every day that God will allow me to be closer to him,” he said.

Officials with the paratransit service said they won’t be late again, his mother added.
