Hey guys,
I just came across this thoughtful little article with some pictures, there is a series of 21 pictures from all around the world of different people in different circumstances doing some incredible and selfless things, through acts of compassion. I tried an ATS search to no avail.

And act of compassion can send someone on the receiving end of that compassion to tears, as seen in at least one or two of these photos. I took a sample of two of the photos for you guys
, please check out the link. I like the photos and i feel you guys will too, everyone needs a little happiness on this page sometimes

The commander seems to be fairly emotional that he got a cake from the protesters

That reminds me of the occasional story here and there of a cease-fire called for Christmas.

I believe you are referring to this below, i never read this before and thankyou for jogging my memory! Here is another feel good event people!

Christmas truce was a series of widespread unofficial ceasefires that took place along the Western Front around Christmas 1914, during the World War I. Through the week leading up to Christmas, parties of German and British soldiers began to exchange seasonal greetings and songs between their trenches; on occasion, the tension was reduced to the point that individuals would walk across to talk to their opposite numbers bearing gifts. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, many soldiers from both sides – as well as, to a lesser degree, from French units – independently ventured into "no man's land", where they mingled, exchanging food and souvenirs. As well as joint burial ceremonies, several meetings ended in carol-singing. Troops from both sides were also friendly enough to play games of football with one another.


Just more proof that the ones calling the shots and the ones actually firing the shots are different people. I wish they taught this in history class when i was in highschool.

No problem guys, i almost teared up as well,
I figured some of you would enjoy
, Its good to not see some doom-porn for once. I think the one with the oxygen mask on the kitty touched me quite a bit.

I'm a cat lover though, Glad you're enjoying them. If anyone has any other photos to add to this collection then please do so here! I think the ATS community can come up with some feel good stories and photos

Really like this thread S&F OP.
This picture alone restored my faith in humanity.


All of them were great. Liked the ones of the guy's saving the sheep too. But anything that knocks those jersey shore fools off their high horse is good in my book.

I had to lay my head down and laugh at this one too.
It was perfect, I dislike jersey whatchamacallit to the fullest extent that someone can hate a TV show. I watched it for 10 minutes and thought my brain was melting.

No.1 and No.6 are pointless as No.1 is stupid and those people shouldn't be a part of the church and No.6 was a race.Who the hell helps someone in a race?

This does nothing to restore faith in humanity.

No, it just reminds people that no everyone is bad, which i see a lot of here.

No 1: They are people who were warped by their religion to be homophobic, and they realized it was wrong. that takes quite a bit of personal responsibility and is admirable, especially for manly men such as the ones pictures.

No 6: The runner had injured ligaments and the second runner stopped to make sure she crossed the finished line, so she at least finished the face. The placement in the race did not matter to the helper, and sacrificing something that they have obviously trained for is a very good sign of compassion for your fellow human beings.

Just because the meaning of a photo isn't obvious, doesn't mean there isn't one.

Well you are certainly doing your best to lose our faith in humanity.
Why criticise this post? Seriously what have you got from it? Has it improved your life in any way? I doubt it very, very much in all honesty. Perhaps you need to take a look at yourself and why you feel the need to criticise what is and should be a purely positive thread.

To the OP - thanks for posting this they all made me smile, great to see such positive things.


Its such a shame the Mainstream media is obsessed with driving doom and gloom down our throats - I suspect positive things like this happen much more often than you can imagine. Can you imagine if the news was full of stories like these, showing how positive and helpful humanity can be towards each other. The domino effect could be immense. More people would be upbeat and helpful towards each other, not just thinking everyone was out to get one over on you, attack you, steal from you. Real shame that we are subject to such depressing news.

Your right. I would actually be able to stomach the news if more of this was included. I'm sure it made it's rounds on the news, at least some of them. But doom and stupid usually trumps compassion in the news. It could only be the difference of bold lettering that draw people to a certain story "War this, terrorist that, election this"

I also wish that the world worshipped real heros, instead of celebrities and the like..

This kinda stuff is what I live for.
It really shows what our society could be, if everyone stopped trying to better themselves.

We are as strong as our weakest link. That saying kind of holds in society.

The way people look down on others who are less fortunate, makes me sick.

We have a local homeless guy who is banned from Krogers, gas stations, Wendy's.. etc.

Every time I see him, I scream his name and go talk to him. One day I fixed his radio for him (Turned out to be a faulty switch).

And while doing this, people stare at me like I'm a lunatic. Like, "what is this, compassion? Who has time for that, when there are so many great things on TV, like the news"
I've been told that before"

I suppose the point to this post, is just be kind to people. Be generous.
Selfless acts do not make you less of a person, and I do not do these to feel better about myself.
I do them simply to see that I had an affect on a person's life, no matter how small it is.

Cat: Useless entity
Such acts of generosity in this case is unnecessary. While he is happy here thousands of women are being sold as sex slaves. Wars are going on in other countries.

Everything people believe in is an illusion. Only by means of tranhumanism can mankind be corrected.

Im sorry. But no.
Cat's have personalities and people are friends with their animals for the most part. Not a useless act to the owner of that cat. Perhaps useless to you. Not everyone is a cat person.

Even still, one can stop the sex trade if one devoted resources to stopping it. Instead we wage illegal wars all over the middle east, and sell our souls to psychopathic elite bankers. As for transhumanism, that i assume will be an eventual possibility, but there are far more powerful things than technology, we have no idea what happens in the universe around us. I think i'd like to take my chances and see what humans can really do. If you infuse yourself with machine then you lose the ability to ascend into higher dimensions. I assume moving dimensions and having access to all information ever is much cooler than what our primitive species can cook up to enhance ourselves.
