19 pictures to restore your faith in humanity *lots of pictures*

It was 21 pics, but I had to edit a couple pics out, due to forum's rule.

All credit to my friend for showing me this.

Positivity bros

2. 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.




3. This picture of two Norwegian guys rescuing a sheep from the ocean.




4. This sign at an awesome bookshop.



5. This poll about what Snooki should name her child.



6. The moment in which this Ohio athlete stopped to help an injured competitor across the finish line during a track meet.



17-year-old Meghan Vogel was in last place in the 3,200-meter run when she caught up to competitor Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of running past her to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath's arm around her shoulders, carried her 30 meters, and then pushed her over the finish line before crossing it.

7. This exchange between a 3-year-old girl and a shopping center.







8. This note that was handed to a waiter along with a $20 bill by an elderly lady in his restaurant.





9. This sign at an awesome Subway restaurant.



10. This picture of a villager carrying stranded kittens to dry land during floods in Cuttack City, India.





11. This sign at an awesome drycleaner's.



Elite Cleaners in Minneapolis helped over 2,000 unemployed workers that couldn't afford dry cleaning. Owner Don Chapman estimated that it cost his company $32,000 dollars.

12. This photograph of a man giving his shoes to a homeless girl in Rio de Janeiro.



13. This picture of a firefighter administering Oxygen to a cat rescued from a house fire.



14. And this one.

15. This interaction between a Guatemalan girl and a tourist she just met.



16. This gesture from a neighbor.



17. These photos of two children collaborating to rescue a dog who had fallen into a ravine.




18. This note on a young family's check.



19. This exchange between a protester and a soldier during a protest in Brazil.




20. These pictures of a man jumping into rough waters to rescue a stranger's Shih Tzu in Melbourne.



Sue Drummond was walking her beloved Shih Tzu, Bibi, on a pier in Melbourne, when a fierce gust of wind picked him up and hurled him into the rough waters of th***. A passerby, Raden Soemawinata, who happened to be on the pier that day to scatter his grandmother's ashes, wasted no time in stripping down and diving into th*** to rescue the animal.

21. And this photograph of two best friends on a swing.



And a little bonus.

You guys should REALLY watch that last video. To say that video is an uplifting story would be a huge understatement.

I am lucky to live in a nice and friendly part of Sydney. Thought you might get a kick out of this picture I took with my I-phone. I think it fits well with the list above.

Great Stuff

I have not lost faith in humanity as I see great people & kids everyday. Though I am no longer enamored with most government leadership
