With all the negative things that are going on in the world, it is easy to lose sight of all of the good things that people do, the compassion that individuals show each other, and the love that is at the heart of the human spirit. So I thought it would be worth having a thread to highlight examples of this, to balance out all the negativity.

Here's one to start:

Yes, I think we really need this! Thank you!

As my first contribution, I just want to link to a thread I posted previously: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4087

I couldn't quickly find an article that included the prelude, which was someone posting on twitter to make fun of the dude who proposed. That unkindness is what sparked the outpouring of support.

If every unkindness in this world could trigger an avalanche of good, it would help balance the world.
