"It was a very lucky moment that captured a perfect response to one man's position!" Popp told Outlook Columbus Magazine about his insta-iconic photo. "If anyone knows who this woman is, please share this with her and THANK her!"
Popp's wish was the Internet's command, and in just minutes, an acquaintance of Juanita McDade tagged her in the photo.
"Classic Juanita!" wrote Dustin Winnon, one of dozens who flooded the publication's Facebook page with words of support.
"Thank you everyone," McDade said in the comments. "I was just doing what came natural."
Popp later commented on his own photo, saying he was taken aback by the positive responses.
"My husband Doug Motz said to me, "...it's about the little 'victories' that everyone experiences in the face of adversity each day! That's what you captured. It speaks to a LOT of us!'"
