Top 25 heart warming moments

With all the negative, depressing, and downright awful stuff on the news these days it can be a fight to stay positive. I felt like there has never been a more appropriate time than now to share some good news for a change. Yes, there will always be tragedy and unexpected disasters. There will always be those people who do unspeakable things that we just don’t understand.

But wait…

Don’t lose your faith in humanity quite yet. It is in these dark days that the tiniest glimmer of light can make all the difference. A listening ear, a friendly smile, a caring hug, a simple act of kindness…these are little things that make a big difference. We all have the ability to make the world a better a place…one moment at a time.

Here are 25  touching moments where people have made a difference right where they were at. These kinds of story’s don’t make the news often, but if you look hard enough they are out there.

Jennifer Foster was visiting Times Square on Nov. 14 when she snapped the heartwarming moment. Here’s her account of what happened:

“Right when I was about to approach, one of your officers came up behind him. The officer said, ‘I have these size 12 boots for you, they are all-weather. Let’s put them on and take care of you.’ The officer squatted down on the ground and proceeded to put socks and the new boots on this man. The officer expected NOTHING in return and did not know I was watching*. I have been in law enforcement for 17 years. I was never so impressed in my life. I did not get the officer’s name. It is important, I think, for all of us to remember the real reason we are in this line of work. The reminder this officer gave to our profession in his presentation of human kindness has not been lost on myself or any of the Arizona law enforcement officials with whom this story has been shared.”
