An onlooker posted the photo to the Love What Matters Facebook page with the following caption: 

I saw this today on my way home from work and it melted my heart. I don't know the whole story but while at a stop light, I noticed a police officer pulled over on the side of the exit ramp in Georgetown and saw that he was talking to this gentleman. I saw a cardboard sign and a bag lying on the ground by his feet. As most people do, I sat at the light and watched what was going on. Both men appeared to be speaking calmly when I noticed the man on the left nod his head. The officer then grabbed the man's hand in both of his hands and they both bowed their heads. They stood this way for about 30 seconds. I don't know what was said but they appeared to be praying. Afterward they spoke a few more words and the officer returned to his car. The man picked his sign up off the ground and the officer drove away. It was just two men having mutual respect for one another. This has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with being a good human. Love your neighbor. Be kind to one another.

There’s no better proof that there’s still some good left in this world than two strangers taking a moment to put all of their differences aside while they pray together.
