LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A photo of a Muslim family expressing their generosity in Louisville is getting some heavy social media attention.

Facebook user Beth Thorpe posted a photo of the family holding bags of bottled water, fruit and cakes that they shared at the Big Four Bridge.

That's where WAVE Country residents gathered to march Sunday evening to show their support for the city of Orlando following the gay nightclub massacre there just hours earlier.

"Brave family," Thorpe wrote. "They posed for this photo for me."

Thorpe published the photo after the march Sunday night and in less than 72 hours, the post had gained more than 4,000 likes and nearly 2,000 shares.
