It was an extremely cold, rainy day in Zonguldak, Turkey. And an unknown woman was just exiting a cafe when she spotted a dog lying on the sidewalk, slightly shivering as it slept.
She walked just past the stray dog but suddenly stopped a few feet away. She then turned and walked back to the animal. She put her umbrella down on the sidewalk and took her scarf off. She put her scarf across the dog, hoping it would help to warm him up.
He looked up to her for a few seconds, checked out his new blanket and then put his head back down. The woman then quietly walked away.
The clip of the woman doing this was posted and it went viral. And because of that, the unknown woman in it was identified by her friends as Duygu Elma, and she was surprised by all the attention the clip was receiving, with many giving her high praise for her actions.
Says Duygu: “The weather was so cold. I just couldn’t take it when I saw him shivering.”
But what many watched in the clip was something else. It was a tiny moment of humanity. And sometimes, a tiny moment of it is all we need to get us through the day.
