75 Photos Showing the Brighter Side of Humanity

The mainstream media would have us believe That the world is a bad place.

They feature, in the main, Events that are sure to make us feel gloomy, fearful and less hopeful for the future.

But we, just like you, know that there is another, far brighter side to life because we regularly see it in our own lives….We see the wonder, intelligence, gentleness, kindness and beauty of our fellow humans.

There is so much good out there. So much love. So much compassion.

See for yourself…
