While aboard a plane, Kesha Bernard of Savannah, Georgia, offered to help a fellow mother when two of her three children started crying and screaming before takeoff. The Alaska Airlines flight was delayed due to weight issues.
While Bernard waited for others who were closer to help, she noticed that instead many were "huffing and puffing."
As Bernard walked back to her seat, she says the baby immediately stopped crying, and eventually fell asleep in her arms.
The moral of the story? “Be nice and considerate,” Bernard said. “If someone needs help, for God's sake help them.”
The message, which has over 221,000 likes and almost 100,000 shares, concluded with: “How can we ignore a human in distress? Please be kind. Please be considerate. Help one another. It makes everything easier. I promise you won’t die.”
