A post going around on social media shows what true kindness and compassion looks like.

Kevin Armentrout shared the touching moment when his young daughter sat by a man as they watched cartoons and shared snacks at an airport Saturday.

While they were waiting to board their plane, the friendly little girl sat by a man as he showed her how to use his tablet. Armentrout says the friendly exchange went on for about 45 minutes.

"Watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her," Armentrout wrote on Facebook.

Friends and colleagues of the man shown in the picture say they aren't surprised to see his act of kindness because he's known to be a great man who is also great with kids.
