We always complain about the world getting selfish. And it’s true. We switch on the news channel, watch people dying everywhere in the world due to crime, violence, terrorism or natural disasters, and the most we do is post a Facebook status expressing our sadness about it. And then we forget about it and get busy in our lives. We are so busy in our lives, we have become impassive about what is happening around us.
But if you thought good people have been wiped out from the face of this earth, you stand wrong. Here are some photos that show good people still exist in the world. They are people who feel for others’ pain and try to do something more meaningful than posting a Facebook status. They took out time from their busy routines to do something solid for the people who needed their support. Scroll down and have a look at these photos that will restore your faith in humanity.

2- People who sent letters and gifts to a terminally ill man who loved receiving mails
This man, Scott Widak, suffers from Down Syndrome and Liver Disease and loves receiving mail. But who sends mails these days especially to a sick person?

21- Now, that is a thoughtful thing to do before you take off a flight with a bunch of babies
I know that feeling when your baby is crying out his lungs and you know all the other passengers in the plane are getting disturbed. And I know the feeling when you want to sleep but the kid in front of you is crying and you feel like throwing him out the window. Hence, this little package distributed by parents is a thoughtful gesture.
22- A couple who stayed together no matter what
This love story is unlike any other. From the time when everything was perfect to the time when the boy got into army and then went on to fight in a war zone, got injured and ended up in a hospital where both his arms and both legs got amputated, to a rehab where he physically trained, and then his surgery – all this time they stayed together and finally got married.
These photos are no doubt heart touching and inspirational. They make us believe there are still good people out there and the world is not just full of selfish and cruel people.
