21 pictures to restore your faith in humanity....

I grabbed this off another board. Enjoy on a sunday...


1. This picture of Chicago Christians who showed up at a gay pride parade to apologize for homophobia in the Church.





... and the reaction from the parade.








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 the bay. 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 the bay to rescue the animal.














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

Good stuff. It's amazing what we as humans are capable of, when we aren't being total douchbags to each other

My nipples feel tender now.

Thanks

Some really, really good photos here from the winners of the White House Press Photographer's Association. I had the honor of using some of these images years ago in a post Katrina public service ad. Usually, some amazing stories, along with the images. Take a peek:

Pirate can be a little rough around the edges, but those pic's are also a great refection of what pirate's core is. I like to believe that most here could be on that list.

my submission


This little guy got stuck in the garage and was wore out. I got him out of the garage and let him rest for 10 minutes then gave him some sugar water. He flew off about 10 seconds after this pic.

Every one of these is cool to see. If everyone read this at the start of each day there might not be so many assholes around.

Another one that came to mind reading this thread. A dual sport rider who rescued this calf from a canal:

Picture number 4 is from a bookstore in wheeling, wv about a block from where I trained during my last two years as a med student. The park sign is for the city/hospital parking garage where I parked almost daily. I've been to the bookstore a couple times. Very cool little shop.

A picture of you with a plastic bag taped around your head would restore my faith in humanity.
