— -- Last week, Eric Gaines, a police officer for the University of Maryland, Baltimore, shared a powerful message on Facebook after witnessing a young boy praying over a homeless man Tuesday afternoon in downtown Baltimore.

Gaines, who was patrolling the area, told ABC News he saw people patting the man down and he thought the boy was going to do the same. But then he watched the boy bend down and pray over the man as he slept near a bus stop.
