34 Examples of Heart-Warming Humanity

Can You Imagine? Just before aliens finally visit planet Earth, they decide to watch the Earthling’s mainstream news and try and suss us out.  If they did, perhaps they would get the impression that we are…less than friendly beings?

Even for us Earthlings, watching the constant stream of negativity pumped out in the ‘news’, we can be left feeling despondent, anxious and with less hope for the future. However, the media’s version of events is heavily skewed in favor of those types of negative story. Why is that? Well, that’s a subject for another post.

In reality, deep down inside, most of us know that the good outweighs the bad by some distance. Simply put, Humanity is awesome and the light is winning!

7. This is a picture of a chap called Tully holding a 46 year old, wheelchair bound man with severe mental handicaps. Tully picked him up so he could go on the hay ride with everyone else. 5 minutes into the ride the man got so excited that he peed all over himself and Tully. Tully sat there soaked in pee for the remainder of the 40 minute hay ride. As soon as it was over he changed the mans clothes before his own. If that doesn’t show character we don’t know what does.

  2. Emotive post…
    Examples of kindness enliven the faith of the people. Let’s remember the Jack London’s words: “A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog”.
    In people hearts the beam entity of kindness becomes strength of compassion and heals the wounds of the world.
