A 2-year-old lent a helping hand to a fellow toddler recently, helping another boy tie his shoes, KHOU reported.

Josiah Owens, of Houston, was in a hallway when he saw another toddler with his shoes untied, the television station reported. Since Josiah already knows how to tie his shoes, he ran over to the other boy -- who he does not know -- and helped tie his shoes, the television station reported.

Chris Champion sent a photo of Josiah, who is his nephew, to KHOU, which posted the heartwarming photo on social media.

Josiah's mother said her son was not prompted to help out. He simply ran over on his own and took care of his fellow toddler.

In an era that seems to be laced with tension and hate, this example of kindness is a welcome relief.
