The Daily Saint  "By saints I meant people who behaved decently in a strikingly indecent society." --Vonnegut

"Wanted to give a shoutout to this girl. No idea who she is, but we are in Wrigleyville on the rooftop of Old Crow Smokehouse. There was a blind Cubs fan trying to hail a cab for several minutes until the lady came up and asked him if he needed help. She stood there with him until one pulled up. Awesome to see such kindness in the world when the media portrays so much hate. (via Facebook/Ryan Hamilton)

From @gmass67: "While awaiting my antibiotics, I witnessed this moment. The fellow on the right was rather agitatedly and obsessively trying to fix a little fake tea candle and was becoming increasingly frustrated, when this soft-spoken gentleman sat next to him and offered to help. It seemed as if he'd known him a long time, though it was clearly their first encounter. The white-bearded man's hands were very shaky, but when he reached out to take the light in hand and began to repair it, they were stilled as, for those moments in his presence, were the nerves of the man on the right."

"My faith in humanity has been restored! If you're a girl you understand how truly considerate this is! Shoutout to whoever did this!" (via @ sandra321garcia/ Twitter)

Joga Singh, an affluent local agriculturist in Sarwapur, Punjab, was troubled that the Muslims living in the area had to travel far just to pray in a mosque, so he built one for them (especially for his dear friend).

"A few weeks ago, my 7-year-old son posted this card to his dad in heaven and today he got a lovely reply from the postman. I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing that his dad got his card. You didn’t have to make the effort to do this. You could have just ignored it, but the fact that you have made the effort for a little boy you’ve never met is such a lovely thing to do, Royal Mail. You’ve just restored my faith in humanity. Thank you. It honestly means the world to him. Please share this so all the staff at Royal Mail know just how grateful we are. Thanks and Merry Christmas x (Teri Copland/Facebook)
The envelope in the first photo reads, "Mr. Postman, Can you take this to heaven for my dad's birthday? Thanks." The letter in response says, "Dear Jase, While we've been delivering your post, we became aware of some concerns. So I just wanted to take this opportunity to contact you about how we succeeded in the delivery of your letter, to your dad in heaven. This was a difficult challenge avoiding stars and other galactic objects on route to heaven. However, please be assured that this particular important item of mail has been delivered. Royal Mail's priority is to get our customers mail delivered safely. I know how important your mail is to you. I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely. Yours sincerely, Sean Milligan, Assistant Delivery Office Manager"

A few weeks ago, a wall in northeast London was vandalized with the words, "Speak English." Artist and local resident Chris Walker decided to make some edits to the wall to highlights the borough's diversity, which he says is what "makes it so great. ... I saw they'd left me quite a bit of space around their 'artwork' so I thought I'd fill in the blanks." (via iNews)

"I got dumped and laid off from my job on the exact same day. On my way home, I was contemplating suicide and then I saw these people. I never believed in 'signs from God,' but I do now." (via Reddit)
