'This is my America': Photo praising diversity on NYC subway goes viral

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

NEW YORK -- It may be a typical sight for veteran subway riders, but a photo of a Hasidic couple and Muslim woman taken by a Taoist man is getting viral attention on the Internet.

Brooklyn resident Jackie Summers, a self-described Taoist, captured this moment while riding an F train on April 16, Easter Sunday.

According to a Facebook post, Summers gave up his seat on the subway so the Hasidic couple could sit together. Then, the couple scooted over to give a Muslim woman enough room to nurse her baby comfortably.

"This is my America: people letting people be people," Summers wrote.

The photo has more than 38,000 shares on Facebook and 4,500 retweets on Twitter.
