  • Taoist Jackie Summers was riding the F train on Easter Sunday
  • He got up from his seat to make room for a Hasidic couple
  • The couple then scoot over to make room for a Muslim mom feeding her baby
  • 'This is my America' wrote the Brooklynite who shared a photo to social media

A man who shared his heartwarming photo of a Hasidic couple scooting over on a subway train so they could make room for a Muslim mother feeding her baby has gone viral. 

The man, Jackie Summers, who blogs for The Good Men Project, and who is a Taoist, said he gave up his seat to the Hasidic couple on the F train in New York City on Easter Sunday. The F train runs from Brooklyn, through Manhattan, and into Queens.

'A Taoist (me) gives up his seat so a Hasidic couple could sit together. They scoot over so a Muslim mother could sit and nurse her baby, on Easter Sunday,' wrote on Facebook and in his blog. 'This is my America: people letting people be people.'

A Taoist, a Hasidic couple, and a Muslim mom: All living peacefully on the F train, noted Jackie Summers who snapped the photo, which went viral

The post has been shared almost 30,000 times on Facebook since Sunday and shared over 4,000 times on Twitter.

'THIS is what makes America great and these days I've been struggling to find ways to feel good about America,' wrote Lisa Smith Zwart. 'Thank you for restoring a little of my faith in humanity today, Jackie.'

The country has been divided since the presidential election over immigration policies, including a planned wall along the Mexican border and extreme vetting for people coming from primarily Muslim countries.

President Donald Trump has twice ordered a ban on Syrians entering the country, and has said in the past he would send back those refugees already located here. So far, courts have blocked the orders. 

There has been a reported uptick in hate crimes, including Jewish cemeteries that have been vandalized in New York and Philadelphia, and mosques that have been reported vandalized across the country.

But the reaction online to the photo restored a sense of harmony for many.

'This gives me JOY! I will always pray that we as a nation might become ONE as we embrace each other & our differences! A Beautiful Tapestry!' wrote Lynette Branch on Twitter. 

'Now that's the kind of America I would like to live in,' wrote David Lockley. 

'This *is* the future that liberals want. It checks out,' said Janie Jones.

'Such a NY way of life. As a New Yorker living in other parts of the country, I hope that soon the rest of the country catches up,' wrote Muddy Magnolias.

The heartwarming photo was snapped on the F train, which runs from Brooklyn to Queens

Exactly, that was my thought exactly (Dexter)...

Meanwhile, "blacks" in Amerikkka are gun down on the streets, and Amerikkka turns a blind eye! Such hypocrisy! When the je-WISH man stoled our identity, who's people own the very slaves ships that brought our fore-parents here in the first place, and the Arab man who sold our fore-parents to them! Such Hypocrisy!
