When Destiny Carreno stopped by a Mcdonald’s in Chicago last week after work she had no idea she was about to be touched by a simple act of kindness. While waiting to order her food, a man in a wheelchair went up to the counter and tried to communicate with the person at the register. It took a few questions, but the cashier was able to figure out that this man needed help to eat his meal. Carreno was truly surprised and moved by what she saw next.

“I thought the cashier wasn't going to help, especially during rush hour in downtown Chicago, but to my shock, he shut down his register and disappeared from view,” Carreno shared on her Facebook page. “The cashier came out from the kitchen, sat down, and began cutting the man's meal and helped him eat.”

After being moved to tears, she shared a photo of the kind act along with a heartfelt post on Facebook that has since gone viral because, as Carreno puts it, “Compassion has NOT gone out of style.”

Check out the full post below.
