We all need to take a break from the obstacles in life we encounter daily. Some are easy while others often threaten ones own life or the lives of their loved ones. A failing economy, sickness, poor health care, and a society full of greed, corruption, crime and selfishness can make every day a challenge.
This is when we all need to see that there is compassion and humanity still in existence. Here are a few good acts done from the heart from one stranger to another.
In this following series of photos, Sue Drummond was walking her beloved Shih Tzu, Bibi, on a pier in Melbourne, when a fierce gust of wind picked him up and hurled him into the rough waters of the bay.

17-year-old Meghan Vogel was in last place in the 3,200-meter run when she caught up to competitor Arden McMath, whose body was giving out. Instead of running past her to avoid the last-place finish, Vogel put McMath’s arm around her shoulders, carried her 30 meters, and then pushed her over the finish line before crossing it.
