BALTIMORE – As violent protests escalate across Baltimore, one picture is touching hearts. It shows a little boy handing bottled water to officers armed in riot gear.

Bishop M Cromartie posted it to his Facebook page Tuesday with the caption, “One of many pictures that I captured today in the midst of helping clean up the city and it speaks VOLUMES.”

“This picture is starting to spread. Thanks for using social media to show a positive side to these current events,” Lamont Franklin commented.

Here’s a look at some of the truly touching images.
