The unfortunate death of Tyre Nichols has stirred the internet once again since the George Floyd case. The five accused police officers are now facing charges of second-degree murder.

Recently, a photograph of Nichols giving a flower to a little girl has gone viral on social media. The photograph was reportedly taken at the Sacramento Skatepark.

According to his friend, Desmond Sinclair, the picture sums up Tyre. He also added, that Nichols has been the first one to make everyone feel welcome and protected the kid. He was always supporting others and encouraging them as they learned something new.
