Amanda Craft and a group of special education teachers were out for lunch in McDonalds Noblesville, Indiana. Amanda thought her day would be normal much the same as other days.
Until she overheard a conversation between an elderly couple that sat nearby. Their differences peaked the groups interest, but the words exchanged confirmed Amanda’s belief that she should do something.
She took a photo of the two, her mind fixed on the young man who would later be identified as Eric Haralson. Just before she left the restaurant she told him: “I hope you know, you’re going to go viral.”
Like she said, he did go viral …
Once Amanda posted the photo to social media that evening that she explained the story. She began explaining that the elderly woman appeared to be lonely, and asked Eric if she could sit with him.
“Without hesitation, this guy said, ‘of course,’” Amanda said.
She continued: “Shout out to this guy! 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.”
Plenty of other people shared Amanda’s emotion at Eric’s actions. Before long the pair took the internet by storm.
Eric revealed: “She said she just wanted a little conversation, because no one likes to eat alone.”
Eric cleared a place for her and the two began a friendship. Later Eric and Jan later exchanged phone numbers, and they’ve arranged to meet up again.
