In a world riddled with news of war, pestilence, disease, violence and cruelty, you will probably ask yourself every day how far humans have gone to the dumps.
However, there is really no cause for alarm. Even in this day and age, there are still people who show that there is kindness left in humanity. You might not see them often on television or in the movies, but they exist. They are the unsung heroes that we have meet on the street or the subway or even in our own neighborhood.
Here are just some of the most amazing acts of kindness, some even done in the face of extreme danger, that clearly helps restore faith in humanity:
