Sometimes you need a reminder that people can do wonderful things, I hope they warm your heart as they warmed mine. I also realize that some of these may hold some political aspects to them. Do not talk about them. Simply respect the thread for what it is, moments to restore humanity:

Quote:


1. The parents who made their son's wheelchair into the best Halloween costume ever



2. The terminally ill man who loves receiving mail... and got more than he ever expected



Scott Widak has Down syndrome and suffers from liver disease, and he loves receiving mail. His nephew Sean posted his P.O. Box on Reddit and the site's users responded with hundreds of letters, packages, and gifts.







3. A kind stranger who stopped a day from being ruined



4. The doctor who offered free medical care after Hurricane Sandy



5. And the people that helped out any way that they could







Hospital employees make a human chain passing containers of fuel up 13 flights of stairs to the backup generator at Bellevue Hospital in New York City.


6. The older couple who saw themselves in two young parents



7. This Libyan child who doesn't believe in hate



8. The parents who tattooed insulin pumps on their bellies so their diabetic son wouldn't feel "different"



9. The police officer who bought shoes for a barefoot homeless man



Jennifer Foster was visiting Times Square on Nov. 14 when she snapped the heartwarming moment. Here's her account of what happened:
“Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching*. I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. I did not get the officer’s name. It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost on myself or any of the Arizona law enforcement officials with whom this story has been shared.”

10. And the police officers who made blind 13-year-old Gage Hancock-Stevens' dream of being a cop come true







They even gave him a cake



11. The Michigan soccer team who gave their team manager with Downs syndrome an opportunity to start







12. The Texas A&M students that blocked Westboro Baptist Church protesters with a human wall



When students heard that Westboro Baptist Church planned on protesting the funeral of a soldier, they formed a human barricade around the funeral service to block them out.

13. And this brave kid who stood up against hate





14. The woman who kept a homeless man dry during a downpour



15. The Disney security guard who is amazing at his job


16. The Icelandic heroes who rescued sheep during a major snowstorm





17. The quick-thinking little girl who saved her mom's life by slapping her with a piece of pizza

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=vpfuCMcMo88

18. The young girl who loves her dog unconditionally



19. The famous rugby player who visited his biggest fan in the hospital



20. The bros who worked together to save a cat



21. The community that came together to make Caine's dream a reality



22. The football star who gives children in need a shopping spree each year



This is a receipt for $19,000 in toys.

23. The man who comforts the old dog that saved his life



When John Unger had suicidal thoughts after a breakup, it was his dog Shoep who brought him back from the brink. This photograph shows Unger cradling his friend in lake Superior to soothe the dog's arthritis.

24. These candidates for parents of the year



25. The amazing couple who stuck together through unbelievable odds



26. And every single time anything like this happened.

I saw this today and it made my day. Seeing the parents build the wheelchair "costume" for their son was awesome. I take care of an adult, whom is confide to a wheelchair. It was just so awesome to see dreams can still come true.

Texas A&M students one is my favorite. Epic trolls for the win! Cool

Honestly made me tear up a little reading through these. Thanks for sharing it! Through all the bad stuff that happens and that that's all we seem to ever hear about, there is always going to be good left in this world. It's just harder to find it seems.

I like things like this. There is another one too which I liked even more

http://www.buzzfeed.com/expresident/pictures-that-will-restore-your-faith-in-humanity

The economic & animal ones are my faves. The best one, though, is "This story about Japanese senior citizens who volunteered to tackle the nuclear crisis at Fukushima power station so that young people wouldn't have to subject themselves to radiation".

welcomehomeblog.com is another good site.

That was an amazing story. The way those people basically gave themselves up so the young people could stay safe, just amazing.

It's nice to hear things like this, and all the things you posted, BTF. It truly does help restore faith in humanity, especially at a time like this.

Thank you both.

Simply amazing. Thank you. Definitely shed a tear or two for number 25, not to under-credit any of the other ones though.

Thank you for posting this.

Despite our faults Humans do so much more good for one another than bad.

Good news doesn't sell like bad news.
