At the airport two teenage girls who clearly had not flown before had passed through the metal detector and were waiting for others in their group. They were mesmerized by the large airport and were watching everything except their backpacks which were still on the TSA belt. At one point a gentleman got their attention and their group leader. He told them that unfortunately there are people who walk up to the TSA cleared carry-ons and just pick one up. He suggested they keep their eye on their backpacks at all times and hold on to them once through security. They and their group leader were appreciative and I introduced myself and gave him a wristband. I explained it was his job to see someone do a caring act and pass the wristband to them.
