The saying "a picture says a thousand words" is often true, but sometimes a little more context can make seemingly normal photos into pictures that will cheer someone up. A normal graduation photo becomes a teary celebration of the first in a family to earn a masters degree, a guy posing with a pair of cops becomes a man celebrating with the men that found his stolen $150,000 prosthetic arm, and so on. These are some pictures that will make you feel good, especially after you know their backstory.
