Humans are said to be the most intelligent species living on the earth. We as humans become different from other animals because we have the power to think and act accordingly. If we need to help somebody we can help them as much as we want. We feel emotions and we are social beings who always want to live among others. We like to love others and to be loved back by them. We have the power to be kind to others and understand them. We can empathize as well as sympathize. These are the reasons why we are called the most intelligent species on earth.
Life can be incredibly hard at times and almost everybody encounters a period of time in life when circumstances become unbearably difficult. It’s no secret that the world we live in can be pretty depressing at times. There’s so much tragedy and hate floating around that often overshadows the positives in the world. However, there absolutely is good in the world and we love reminding others of this fact and being reminded ourselves. Here we have some photos that highlight the strength of the human spirit. There are many different people involved in this list that have gone through different life experiences.
People often find it hard to imagine what life is like in other countries. To some extent we all live separately from the outside world. But there are some things which unite all of humanity. We all experience the same wide range of emotions — joy, despair, hatred, love, sadness, excitement, inspiration, desire. We’re all motivated to cut our own path through life and struggle against obstacles to get what we want.
These images will show you how strong the human spirit is.
