We all need to feel good about the world we live in once and a while. And when current events get you down, forgetting that -- or feeling pretty bad about the world -- is easy. Sometimes it's nice to have a reminder that the world is full of wonderful people. So consider this your reminder!
Good people from every walk of life are doing selfless things every day. From awesome parents to thoughtful kids, hilarious (yet wholesome) memes to stories that will steal your heart, here are some true acts of humanity. I guarantee you'll be smiling by the end of it -- but likely much sooner! These photos are the pick-me-up you need on a below-average day.
These guys are happy drunks.Just because you've been drinking, doesn't mean you're not still full of love!
