Kind Elderly Stranger On MRT Offers To Help Young Dad And His Baby

Here’s another post to restore your faith in humanity.

For so many of us, riding the train is just all part and parcel of the daily grind that we have to ensure — amidst the chaotic stations, rowdy influx of passengers and lacking carriages, there’s a certain monotony to this routine. So when Faith Arevalo posted on Facebook about this touching incident she witnessed while riding the MRT, it wasn’t hard to see why this resonated with so many of us.

An elderly passenger on the MRT took a chance and decided to offer assistance to an 18-year-old single dad and his baby while riding the train! Read the full post below for the story:

Hi guys!

I just wanna share my wonderful experience I had this morning.

Kanina sa loob ng MRT (Metro Rail Transit) may nangangalabit sa likod ko, paglingon ko isang baby boy pala ( 3-4months), karga ng lalaki! I smiled politely then napansin ko na alanganin ang pwesto ng lalaki dahil wala siya mahawakan kung ma-out of balance siya sa pagkakatayo. Kaya nakipagpalit ako ng pwesto harap ng upuan para makahawak siya sa railings.

Sa harap nila nakaupo si mommy (I called her mommy kasi di ko nalaman name niya) senior citizen na siya. Natuwa siya sa baby, kinuha niya sa lalaki at kinandong. Matagal na raw siya di nakakahawak ng baby. Malalaki na raw kasi ang mga apo nya. At mga professional na ang mga anak niya.

Natanong ni mommy kung anak nya ba ito at kung saan sila papunta. Sa Guadalupe, Makati raw sila pupunta para puntahan ang pinsan nya na nag aalaga sa baby. Then mommy asked, nasaan ang ina nya? Nalungkot ako sampu ng mga kapwa pasehero ko sa sagot ng lalaki. Sabi nya anak nya ang baby, 5months (too small for his age). Namatay ang ina nito while giving birth and the guy’s name is Marlon and he is only 18yrs.old, napaiyak sya habang sinasabi yun. Nasa Polilio Island, Quezon province ang mga magulang nya at dito sya sa manila nagtatrabaho.

Walang ano-ano, sinabi ni mommy na bibigyan niya ng assistance si baby. Nakakabigla kahit kapwa pasahero ko napa isip (seryoso siya?!) Sabi ng lalaki may assistant na siya na pinsan nya at may work naman siya (Pagdating ng shaw may tumayong pasahero at pinaupo ni mommy si Marlon sa tabi nya). But mommy insisted, wag na raw siya mahiya (assistance sa lahat ng kailangan ng baby, from the milk and everything). At her leftside is her daughter (not sure), kinuha niya ang details ng guy (Cp no., name), tatawagan daw siya paglabas nila sa mrt. At pati binyag ng baby sasagutin na rin nila. (Wow sa isip- isip ko nakahanap ng GOOD SAMARITAN si Marlon!) At invited Daw lahat ng witness (isa na ako dun, as if hehehe..)

Well, I think serious si mommy sa sinabi nya.
God is so good. And witnessing such moment was a good feeling. Malakas maka GOOD VIBES! 🙂

Pasensya po mommy and Marlon, hindi ko na nahingi permit nyo taking this photos.

Thank you for reading this guys, and always be a blessing to others. God bless everyone! 🙂

Sometimes, we get too cynical for our own good that this kind of generosity shown by people we don’t know becomes a great wake-up call.

Thoughts on this? Have you encountered a similar experience?
