Fear makes us believe in a scary world. But, when we choose Love instead of fear we realize that we are all one.
We want to live by each other’s happiness not by each other’s misery. We want to help one another, as unreal that sounds to us right now. We fight one another because greed poisons our minds. We hurt each other because we believe others will hurt us.
But no matter what game is played, no matter what side we are on, we are still humans and sometimes, through hell and heaven, in the midst of chaos and disorder, humanity shines bright reminding us that we are all in this together.
These images will remind you what being a human means. They will restore your faith in humanity and probably make you shed a tear or two.
