We had to share this picture.
The New York Times told the story behind it: 25-year-old police officer Lawrence DePrimo was on duty in Times Square on November 14 when he came across a barefoot homeless man who was walking on his heels with blisters on his feet.
DePrimo got the guy's shoe size and ducked into a nearby shoe store. Then he knelt on the ground to help the man put his new shoes on.
That was the moment when an Arizona tourist who was passing by snapped this shot and sent it to the NYPD.
They requested a copy and posted it to Facebook. So far it's got over 390,000 likes.
And the manager of the shoe store was touched by the shot. He gave DePrimo an employee discount, bringing the cost of the boots down to about $75.
DePrimo says he keeps the receipt on him now, "to remind me that sometimes people have it worse."
