Riding the train can be a humbling experience.
The train, also known as the Metro Rail Transit system or the Light Rail Transit system in Metro Manila, is one of the preferred modes of transportation in most countries because of how efficient it can be and how convenient it is.

There are many different rules and regulations in every train system but one of the universal rules is to give way to people who might actually need the seat such as senior citizens or elderly people, people with disabilities, children, or pregnant women. This is a rule that is being implemented and followed in almost all countries with their own train systems, but it is also being done out of a person’s free will and common decency.
Recently, a video from a train system in Malaysia went viral after it captured a kid who stood up and gave his seat to a pregnant lady who just entered their cart. None of the other passengers even bothered to move but the kid knew what he had to do. He set a good example by not hesitating to give up his spot.
According to the video clip, it was around 2:55 in the afternoon when the train stopped to let passengers get on their respective carts. There were not a lot of people on the train at that time but all of the seats were already taken.
A group of people got on and the last one who entered the cart in focus was a pregnant lady carrying a few bags with her. She looked around her immediate area for a seat but all the seats were taken.
There were three men sitting on one side and two ladies and one child sitting on the other. One of the ladies moved a bit to the edge of the bench but the pregnant lady saw that she still could not fit in so, she remained standing in the middle of the cart hanging on to the handles attached to the ceiling.
After a few more seconds, the child sitting in between the two ladies stood up and let the pregnant lady take his seat while he transferred to one of the poles. It can be seen that the pregnant lady smiled at him in thanks before finally sitting down.
