By this simple act of love, this man has gone viral

 “Happiness can be found even in the darkest times if one only remembers to turn on the light,” said Albus Dumbledore in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The character may be fictional, but his words are not.
 
A man in the Manchester city of England turned the light on and found happiness for people. He stood in front of a mosque, with “You are my Friends, I will keep watch while you pray” written on a board.
 
He stood there in the context of the attack on two mosques in New Zealand. The shooter was a white supremacist and attacked the mosques out of Islamophobia.
 
Andrew Graystone, the man with the board, quickly went viral on the Internet. Many people posted his picture, asking his name. Then her daughter told them who he is.
