27 Breathtaking Photos Proving That Love Does Exist

Whatever skeptics and pessimists say, things are much better when you look on the bright side of life. Humans (and animals) are still ready to show kindness and to give love to those who need it.

To prove these words, Bright Side found 27 touching photos and a bonus to show you that a common language can be found even with those who can’t hear you.

27. 20 years of love

"In 1995, my great-aunt gave me a stuffed cat. It was my absolute favorite and slept with me every night through my childhood. When she passed, we found out she had bought an identical cat and kept it in pristine condition for 2 decades. The years of love certainly left their mark."

26. Every year, this man buys toys, dresses up as Santa Claus, and presents them to children in hospitals.

25. "My grandma (93) and her sister (96) going to the beach last weekend."

24. Greetings from the past

"My parents in the ’70s. My father passed when I was young (20+ years ago). His best friend recently contacted me and said he found some pics of my mom and dad and sent them my way."

23. "The first moment my mom and dad met 35 years ago when they collided while playing volleyball."

22. "This man took a bullet while protecting my sister from the gunfire in Vegas. He was injured."

18. Mom was happy.

"My sister got married this weekend, and sadly our mother passed away in February of 2000. However, she made a little appearance thanks to Photoshop. This was a beautiful thing done by her photographer."

17. First friend in life

"I’ve never seen my autistic sister light up this way before. She finally connected with someone, and his name is Fuzzy."

16. A guy from Denmark decided to help lonely people find friends.

"Statistics in Denmark show that more than 210,000 Danes often feel lonely, which is why I threw a party for strangers. 100+ people came!"

8. "Today... At 28 years old, I was ADOPTED by my stepfather."

Before a hurricane in Florida, the electricity generators sold out in shops. A stranger gave his generator to this woman, whose father cannot live without an oxygen machine.

2. "The moment of inception"
