On Thursday morning 28-year-old Eric Haralson went to a local McDonald's to have breakfast by himself. He was soon approached by an elderly woman named Jan, who asked if she could join him. He agreed and the two strangers spend 45 minutes eating together and enjoying each other's company.

Amanda Craft, a local teacher, was sitting nearby and overheard the conversation. She snapped a photo of the two new friends and posted it to her social media where it went viral.

Haralson told Today about Jan asking if she could eat with him:

"My reply was 'of course' because that's just who I am. So she grabbed her food, I pushed her chair out for her and introduced myself. She mentioned many times how we all should love one another, and how we should not judge anyone because you never know how their day is going and what they've been through."

Craft captioned her post"

"Shout out to this guy! This elderly lady (seemed to be a little lonely) came up to him and asked if she could sit with him. My friends and I watched him introduce himself and shake her hand. They talked and laughed together like they were friends. They didn't know each other, and they couldn't be more different. But today they shared a meal together and it touched our hearts."


People fell in love with this sweet pair.










The two exchanged numbers so maybe this will become a weekly thing. We hope!

Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
