Sometimes the world can be a dark, dark place. But where there’s shadow, there is also light. People aren’t always awful, and life can be oh so beautiful.
Unfortunately the good deed stories are sometimes lost in the constant media coverage of crime, war, and hatred. That’s not to say those aren’t important issues, but it’s just as important for us to recognize the the unsung heroes that make the world a brighter place.
Below are 21 pictures that helped me realize what it means to be human. It means stepping outside your comfort zone to help a stranger. To be selfless. To embrace fear and overcome it. And it means to love.
I hope these pictures brighten your day just a little bit. Share this with your family and friends, as a reminder that we’re all together on this crazy journey called life.
