15 Photos That Prove the World Is Full of Everyday Heroes

When we think of a hero, we often think big, like the Avengers. But you can be a hero to anyone and anytime with just a small kind deed or gesture. Like Keanu Reeves, who has all the patience in the world for his fans. And to top it, he gifted all the stuntmen of John Wick 4 a Rolex.

Bright Side salutes these heroes, for deeds both small and big. Their kindness and big hearts show us the way to do good.
