The “BEST OF” Humanity

We may all live in different parts of this planet, but one thing we likely share is an exposure to an evening broadcast called the “NEWS”. In actuality, it could more accurately be characterized as a parade of images and information that showcase the “worst of humanity”.
What is interesting is how the image of humanity portrayed on the evening news drastically differs from the actual image and feel I get from living my everyday life. The people I work with are fine individuals…we have neighbors that genuinely care for each other…the people that teach my children everyday in school have enormous hearts…my interactions with people throughout the day is almost exclusively positive.

Why do we have this need to cultivate a negative image of our species? Even in this forum, we seem to be more prone to sharing examples of despair and dysfunction instead of beauty.

Humanity is imperfect. BUT
HUMANITY IS BEAUTIFUL and we create some of the most beautiful things imaginable…make some of the most beautiful choices…act in some of the most beautiful ways.

This thread is here to showcase the “BEST OF HUMANITY”. I know you are all exposed to instances and examples of this beauty all the time. This is the place to share these examples with the rest of us. This sharing can come in the form of personal accounts, news articles, links to images or materials and such. Let’s have fun with this!

Five very short stories that touch the heart,
shared by Marc at Rainbowtide from an email:


Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked
to judge.. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was:

A four-year-old child, whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman,
who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went
into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the
little boy just said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry."


Teacher Debbie Moon's first graders were discussing a picture of a family.
One little boy in the picture had a different hair color than the other
members. One of her students suggested that he was adopted.
A little girl said, "I know all about adoption, I was adopted.."
"What does it mean to be adopted?", asked another child.
"It means", said the girl, "that you grew in your mommy's heart instead of
her tummy!"


On my way home one day, I stopped to watch a Little League base ball game
that was being played in a park near my home. As I sat down behind the bench
on the first-base line, I asked one of the boys what the score was.
"We're behind 14 to nothing," he answered with a smile.
"Really," I said. "I have to say you don't look very discouraged."
"Discouraged?", the boy asked with a puzzled look on his face...
"Why should we be discouraged? We haven't been up to bat yet."


Whenever I'm disappointed with my spot in life, I stop and think
about little Jamie Scott.
Jamie was trying out for a part in the school play. His mother told me that
he'd set his heart on being in it , though she feared he would not be
On the day the parts were awarded, I went with her to collect him afterschool. Jamie rushed up to her, eyes shining with pride and excitement.
"Guess what, Mom," he shouted, and then said those words that will remain a
lesson to me....."I've been chosen to clap and cheer."


An eye witness account from New York City , on a cold day in December, some
years ago: A little boy, about 10-years-old, was standing before a shoe
store on the roadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering
with cold.
A lady approached the young boy and said, "My, but you're in such deep
thought staring in that window!"
"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes,"was the boy's reply
The lady took him by the hand, went into the store, and asked the clerk to
get half a dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give
her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her.
She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her
gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with the towel.
By this time, the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon
the boy's feet, she purchased him a pair of shoes.
She tied up the remaining pairs of socks and gave them to him.. She patted
him on the head and said, "No doubt, you will be more comfortable now."
As she turned to go, the astonished kid caught her by the hand, and looking
up into her face, with tears in his eyes, asked her
"Are you God's wife?" ... ead=119676
