Our society focuses on fictional superheroes because we're drawn to the seemingly impossible. Lines of people will wait to see a new Ironman or Captain America movie... but probably don't give a second's thought to the real heroes out there. There are thousands of men and woman that save the lives of others, but no one knows that they are doing it. Take, for example, this man in China. He was just walking down a street when he noticed tragedy in the making... and then stopped to help. Most passers by kept on going, but he and another man stopped to save a life.These passers by noticed trouble two stories up.

Why You Should Care About ALS And The Ice Bucket Challenge.

LIFE
Over the past few weeks, the rage across the Internet has been the "Ice Bucket Challenge" in order to raise awareness for the disease ALS. Many people have seen those videos (and you may have even made one yourself), but not many people know what ALS is, where it comes from, and what it actually does. So, instead of just dumping a bucket of ice water on our heads, let's actually educate ourselves about the issue. Here are some facts about ALS and why you should care about it and why you should want it eradicated.The nerve cells that ALS attacks are the lower motor neurons which carry about a wide range of functions such as moving the limbs, swallowing, and breathing. It doesn't affect the brain, just the motor neurons, so cognitive functions usually remain norm...

There are so many homeless dogs living all over the country that aren't getting the love and help they deserve. But luckily for many of these dogs, they eventually get a second chance at happiness due to animal rescue organizations such as Hope For Paws. One dog who had been living under a dumpster in Los Angeles got that second chance of a happy life when Eldad Hagar from Hope For Paws showed up. Eldad received a call about the scared homeless dog and he jumped at the chance to save him. The dog had been abandoned there 11 months prior, and he would hide whenever anyone came near him.

This Powerful Anti-Drinking Ad From Finland Shows How Kids See Their Parents Who Drink.

LIFE
This anti-drinking ad shown in Finland asks a simple question: "How do children see their parents when they're drunk?" The answer to that question is both poignant and terrifying, but necessary for a country where alcohol is a major cause of death. The ad depicts terrified children living in a world full of monsters. As the ad goes on and the horror movie music builds, the camera cuts to what the children are looking at: the terrifying monsters that are their parents. The drunk parents are depicted as everything from a huge scary bunny to a masked man. Watch the chilling ad below:(Source: Lasinenlapsuus) I've seen a lot of anti-drinking ads before, but this one really hit me. That last kid's acting was so on point that it made me sweat.

If you travel just about two hours outside of Tokyo to Nara, Japan, you might think you've stepped into a Disney movie. If you think about how India feels about cows, you'll have an idea of how this town feels about deer. They are approximate 1,200 deer roaming their streets. It's as adorable as it sounds.

Sometimes there seems to be a lot of cruelty in this world, but that cruelty is more often than not met with great kindness. That was the case when one young man and his cousin were out walking one rainy day when they heard an odd sound coming from a pile of trash. They decided to investigate and what they found inside one of the trash bags will break your heart... It was a poor little puppy, all tied up and injured, that had been discarded like trash by some cruel person. They immediately got the puppy out of the bag and took her to the veterinarian. After getting the pup all cleaned up they decided to keep her, and named her Angie. Good thing the two cousins happened on the bag when they did or else this poor puppy probably wouldn't have survived for very long.This i...

Dolls are creepy. Add the element of paranormal and they are done right terrifying. We should burn them all. But children like dolls. This is true. In Australia, a place called the Doll Hospital respects that and does everything they can to keep dolls from looking like they want to devour your soul. Originally opening in 1913, the Doll Hospital is still operational, employing 12 "doll surgeons" and repairing over 200 dolls a month (so many dolls...). The adorable thing is that many of the work is done for what the hospital affectionately calls 'big children' or older women who want their old dolls preserved so they can gift them to their children and grandchildren. That I can get behind, as long as my mom doesn't want to gift her old ventriloquist dummy, Larry to me. Chec...
