Williams didn't even hesitate. Without any hesitation, Williams grabbed a knife and fork and started to cut smaller pieces so that the ailing man could eat his food.
'This may seem small to him, I'm sure it was huge.
While Williams tended to the elderly man, another customer snapped a photo and posted it on Facebook. "He was also on oxygen and struggling to breathe", Wold began the post. "I'm thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative", Wolf wrote in her post, which had received 99,000 likes and 47,000 shares as of Friday afternoon. In a few days, authorities from TSU rewarded her with a scholarship for $16,000 (worth approximately Rs 10,00,000).
"City of La Marque is proud to have this thoughtful young woman working in our city and we'd like to acknowledge and honor her", city spokeswoman Colleen Merritt told the newspaper.
Wolf told KHOU-TV that William's kindness, despite how busy the restaurant was, really made an impression on her.
But on that day in February, what she did for an elderly customer was captured in a photo that's gone viral. "If I want to cut my meat, I look like I'm stabbing it", Adrien Charpentier said. "I was raised to help and try to give blessings". What's more, it soon grabbed the Mayor's attention and many other people from Texas Southern University.
The post even attracted the attention of La Marque city officials and scouts from Texas Southern University-who chose to offer Williams a helping hand.
