This is about TOUCH - not my usual finger tips but in a hostile situation - TOUCH

Canada - Metro Train Vancouver::  

a large man described as “suffering from drug abuse and\or mental health issues” became aggressive.

The man was alarming fellow passengers with erratic movements, cursing, shouting until a 70-year-old woman reached out and 
HELD his.

That gesture soothed the man. 

He sank to the floor of the train as tears flooded his eyes.
It was quite incredible how much he calmed down in a split moment,  
“It was the most touching thing I've ever seen.”

After this incident the man simply said 
 'Thanks, Grandma,' and walked away,"  
‘I'm a mother and he needed someone to touch.’ 

And she started to cry ..... 

Although the woman felt a great amount of empathy for the man, like most, she was initially petrified to interfere.

"She was very brave” 
“She even mentioned that she thought about what would happen if he stabbed her with the pen -- because he had one in his hand -- but she said ::

"it was more important he didn't feel alone"
