But don't give up hope just yet!
Heartwarming moments of basic human decency and compassion often get lost in the chaos of our sensationalist culture, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t happen. That’s why we’ve gathered this collection of pictures that will restore your faith in humanity and hopefully help give your soul a boost.
So the next time you get sick of hearing tales of mankind at its worst, check out this list of photos that each speak louder than a thousand words. You’ll see stereotypes shattered as people from all different walks of life come together in acknowledgment of their shared humanity.
Most importantly, you’ll see the truth reflected over and over again that anyone can make a difference, no matter who they are. It was Mother Teresa who once said, “We know only too well that what we are doing is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. But if the drop were not there, the ocean would be missing something.”We hope these pictures will not only restore your faith in humanity but help you realize that you don’t have to change the entire world in order to change your own.
