Restoring Faith In Humanity
When You Look For Violent, Exciting Content But Your Faith In Humanity Was Restored Instead
Humanity has since long existed in this Earth. We have done a whole lot of things already, may it either be beneficial or destructive, sometimes to nature, sometimes to ourselves, sometimes to both. Because of this, our “faith” in ourselves is very much fluctuating like the continuous line that you see when you analyze the stock exchange. And with the rise of social media (and the fall of good manners and respect for other people), we have also seen the rise of very disparaging acts of humanity.
However, the good shall always prevail. There will be a lot more people who will do good to others than become keyboard warriors on Facebook.
Here are 5 acts that will make you realize that not everyone today is like that:
- Guess who this guy is. Yep. It’s Arizona Cardinals tight end Jermaine Gresham. Yep. It’s him. On May 30, 2018 at about 1:37 PM, Delilah Cassidy, a law student, was about to board the plane when the gate agent told her that she needs to pay $50 to bring her carry on with her. If she didn’t pay, she would have to miss her flight. Some stranger was behind her paid the fee, so she can make the flight. To her surprise, it was Gresham. It seems that he is a real good guy, as more stories of his small acts of kindness were shared by other people all over the internet. SOURCE
- A kid’s small act of kindness is going viral. Maurice Adams, and 8-year-old boy from Georgia, was in their car when her mom saw an elder woman having difficulty climbing up the stairs. He sprung out the car and immediately helped the woman to climb. A person named Riley Duncan took a video footage of the kind act and posted it on Facebook. Later, he went to find the boy and gave him a $100 as his reward for his good deed. SOURCE
- Jenna Steele took a picture of this event. A group of teenagers went out of their car and gave a homeless guy some money. That was a small and simple act, but we’re pretty sure that it had a really, big effect on that guy. What Jenna said in her caption was right. Let us focus on the potential of the youth doing good things to others rather than making them look like troublemakers. SOURCE
- While in Denver, the Denver Public Library employed community resource specialists like the woman on the left. Her name is Kristi Schaefer. She and other community resource specialists like her help the homeless in their community with their concerns. In this picture, she assists Richard Ortega with the charging of his wheelchair at the public library on January 26, 2017. Kristi Schaefer is just one of many that help their communities in Denver.

- Some random residents of Krakow, Poland celebrated “Free Hugs Day” on this year. Let’s face it. Everyone needs a hug. Or two. Or five. Or twelve.
