Such beautiful, beautiful souls.

These children teach us that if we are capable of doing even better things. Being an adult should grant us even more power to do things that kids do with their small hands.

Scroll down and enjoy these wholesome stories that’ll help you start your day with a smile.

They saved a man’s life!


“On July 9th, my six-year-old nephew Bridger saved his little sister’s life by standing between her and a charging dog.”


“After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister’s hand and ran with her to keep her safe. He later said, “If someone had to die, I thought it should be me.” After receiving 90 stitches (give or take) from a skilled plastic surgeon, he’s finally resting at home.”

“Oh, the cuteness!”


“I’m so proud of my son; he seen a kid balled up into a corner crying, so he went to console him, grabbed his hand, and walked him inside of the school!”


“It is an honor to raise such a loving, compassionate child! He’s a kid with a big heart; the first day of school started off right.”

“Just wanted to shed some light in this dark world we live in…”

A proud and happy mom.


The real definition of a nice guy.


“A lot of grade-school-aged kids may have stayed away from my sister Mary or thought she was weird because she has Downs Syndrome. But not Ben. He always looked out for her, always made sure to pick her on his team at recess, and even made a promise to her in 4th grade to take her to the prom someday. 7 years later, he made good on that promise and, in the process, put a smile on Mary’s face & restored my faith in humanity. Have a great time at the prom, you two!”

He saved an 18-year-old girl from a kidnapping attempt.

Police Derry City & Strabane

“This is Tiernan McCready. This is what a hero looks like.

Last week in the Bogside he saw three males grab an 18-year-old girl and try to get her in their van.

Most ADULTS would be paralyzed in shock, confusion, or fear and fail to act till it was too late. Tiernan reacted instantly and shouted at the males and led the girl away to safety. He then told his mum who rang Police.

Let that sink in.

This could have been the start of a potentially serious and harrowing crime. That girl could have been my child, my sister, your child, your family member.

The Bogside, Brandywell, and The Fountain Neighbourhood Team presented Tiernan with a PSNI Badge of Honour (and some Malteasers). But this doesn’t go anywhere near to paying off the debt our community owes this boy. Our youngsters often get a bad rep but remember the vast majority are brave and big-hearted just like Tiernan.”

“Hadn’t seen each other since daycare closed, parents arranged a playdate. When it was time to leave:”

Such a huge voice inside a small body!


This little boy lets a mother with her baby stroller sit, then uses her hand to support her sleeping mother while carrying her bags.

“My son was looking out of the window. Then I heard him FLY down the steps. I was gonna fuss at him.”


“…Until I saw why he did. He saw my elderly neighbor walking in a rainstorm without an umbrella on Friday. And walked him all the way home. Wearing my slippers and my jacket. I love this boy yall…”

“Just a kid.”


The boy has a message for the passengers.


The little brother stepped in.


“They told me his name is Ridan, and every day this poor guy comes to the restaurant… and from his own expenses.”


The boy would buy him food and feed him with his hands. He works at Al-Falafel restaurant and is taking a one-year break to hopefully return to school when he has enough saved.
