15 Times When Children Have Been the True Heroes Restoring Your Faith in Humanity

In a world of judgment, selfishness, and all sorts of things, an act of kindness is all we need to light up our day. That act of kindness can come from anyone, anytime and anywhere. As much as children are often misunderstood, or just deemed as children without a true concept of life, still in a lot of moments they have proven themselves as the real heroes the society needs.

Even if they don’t know a lot about life, they are able to sense what’s right or wrong. For example, stopping someone from jumping from a bridge. They know that an action like that it’s just wrong, and they try to do their part to help.

People all over the internet have shared moments where children we the true heroes, and it’s so heartwarming to see and know about their heroic acts. Below we have made a collection of some of these moments that will restore your faith in humanity. Scroll down below to check them out. 

1. 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. We love our brave boy and want all the other superheroes to know about this latest hero who joined their ranks.

2. Just wanted to shed some light on this dark world we live in

My beautiful nana passed away on August 9th, peacefully in her home. Please never forget this beautiful story. It was meant to spread love and kindness, and unfortunately many have turned it into something so negative.

3. My son said there are some kids in his class that doesn’t eat their lunch. “How come?” “Cause they don’t have one, mommy. Can I bring them some of mine?” totally his idea, and he helped pack it, too.


4. My daughter asked me if she could sell her stuffed animals and donate the money to our local Spca


5. Late last night, Myles went on and on about how he had to be twins with a boy in his class for twin day because they look exactly the same — same eyes, same hair. He was adamant that they were identical.

So, after the kids went to bed, I headed to Walmart at 9 p.m. to get matching outfits. Their teacher sent me this picture today. My heart melted.
Obviously, they are two very different children, but Myles didn’t see that. Wouldn’t the world be such a better place if we could all view it through the eyes of a couple of 5-year-olds?

6. My-12-year-old son ran a cake stall to raise money for cancer research. He raised £79

7. The 7-year-old boy spotted a fire, woke up his dad, and saved the house

9. A 12-year-old kid makes shelter cats and dogs stylish bow ties to help them find a home

Despite his young age, a 12-year-old from New Jersey with a heart of gold, Darius Brown has taken an initiative to help our furry friends get adopted much faster. He creates handmade stylish bow ties for four-legged companions (cats and dogs) and donates them to animal shelters to attract the attention of future owners.

10. A 7-year-old promise


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!

11.  Boy prevents kidnapping of a young girl

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.

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


13. I can’t believe it, 6 months ago I saved your life, and today you are enjoying it, I love you with all my being 


14. A 5-year-old girl gently supporting her 4-year-old brother as the side effects of chemotherapy disrupt their playtime

Lucky Couple Started Dating in College and Got Married Later, Only to Find Out They First Met at 6-years-old

When we see a new couple, we are thrilled to know the story of how they meet. Today will all the relationships that start in social media, there is not much to tell. However, there are still some people out there who have the ‘love at first sight’ type of stories to tell. For instance, Heidi and Ed Savitt, the two love birds that started dating in university, but actually met each other when they were only 6 years old.

This adorable couple thought they first met in college, but thanks to the family albums they found out they actually new each other since they were kids. Firstly, we’re going to tell you how they meet for the second time.

Ed & Heidi Savitt

Ed was studying psychology and business, while Heidi was an economics and management major. After Ed moved into the student accommodations, he was having trouble using the washing machine. Therefore, he reached out to Heidi, which was the previous tenant and ready to help Ed.

That was the first communication they thought they had. Afterwards, they locked eyes on a night out, which lead to a first date in a local Pizza Express. Years later into the relationship, Ed popped the big question, to which Heidi said yes. This sweet moment becomes even more awesome when they learned the first time they actually met.

Ed & Heidi Savitt

While on a dinner with Heidi’s parents, her mom remembered that Heidi had a boyfriend named Ed, which she met while vacating in Turkey. What was thought as a cute coincidence, soon turned out to be a shocking truth. These love birds fell for each other at only 6 years old.

Heidi’s mom started digging into old family albums and found out the picture of Heidi and Ed as kids. Ed’s family did the same and they found some adorable shots of the lovely couple when they were kids.

They meet by coincidence twice, which makes you wonder that the universe wanted these people to be together.

Ed & Heidi Savitt

Back in 1997, the two families decided they wanted a family vacation abroad. It just so happened that both decided to have their vacations in Bodrum, Turkey at the exact same time. The two families were from two different countries, and had never known each other before. However, kids did what kids usually do, and soon became friends with each other.

Unfortunately when the vacation ended, so did their friendship. And surprisingly none of them remembered this detail of their childhood.

Ed & Heidi Savitt

Ed and Heidi are now married and co-own a café shop in Southfields, London. They went back to visit Turkey when everything started. To their surprise there was a mural of the two of them from when they were just 6, celebrating a love that started over 20 years ago.
