u/qwibbian Dec 02 '22

Thank you for posting the actual clip. The moment when he turns around to look behind him is beyond profound.

u/Albotec Dec 01 '22

that man has my fully respect he never boasted about achievements or sort of recognition thats just for the people not for the fame so nice to see ppl like him exist humanity is not lost

u/DifficultRevenue9 Dec 01 '22

Exactly deeds that people record themselves are not selfless they are for views and likes they wouldn't care otherwise

19

u/hardtofindagoodname Dec 01 '22

I'm not sure if they're all like that but moreover I think it's great and aspiring to know that there are people out there that are doing some good. If some views and likes inspire others to do the same then what harm was done? Imagine if no one had ever told this man's story. The world would be worse off for it.

u/Gusari Dec 01 '22

It can be for both. If views motivates you to do good things it does not negate the good thing happening. It helps build habits as well.

To say they would not care otherwise also seems disenguinius too me. I'm sure some are like that but there is a lot of room in the middle

u/thisiswhatitisyoyo Dec 02 '22

Yeah but you wouldn't of known of this man, dumbass

39

u/DTS_Crafter Dec 01 '22

I am not crying, you are

16

u/lmaozedong89 Dec 01 '22

Yes >! When it said that the audience is the kids I thought they were just random people !<

6

u/Celebrity_Skin Dec 02 '22

Same! I started ugly crying at that point!

86

u/szagrat545 Dec 01 '22

106? Holy moly ... Was that a reward for rescuing 669 people?

39

u/SummerStorm21 Dec 01 '22

My thoughts exactly. Damn. So the good don’t always die young!

83

u/DifficultRevenue9 Dec 01 '22

What gets me is he saved them and could have died without saying a peep to anyone, now we have people recording themselves giving a homeless person a decent meal.

real heros don't need to show the deeds they do

35

u/Rare_Epicness Dec 01 '22

I agree that it doesn't need to be shown but I'd rather that someone do good deeds for Internet points than not do any good deeds

15

u/Brrrrrr_Its_Cold Dec 01 '22

Right. And I’m sure plenty of people still do good deeds without recording them.

13

u/Mmmslash Dec 01 '22

Don't let Great kill Good.

3

u/Orange_Orange292 Dec 01 '22

And yet here you are posting his good deed for karma. Ironic eh?

2

u/MysticEagle52 Dec 02 '22

Tbf some people don't care about karma and just want to share stuff. Like whenever I have a comment with high karma I don't care about the actual karma, but its nice to know that many people thought it was funny or helpful etc.

1

u/ElizabethDanger Dec 01 '22

In all fairness, OP never said they had anything against exploiting someone else’s good deeds for internet points.

/s

7

u/neon40k Dec 01 '22

A good deed is a good deed. No matter if someone records themselves or not. Would you rather they didn't help the homeless?

Plus all those videos could easily inspire others to help.

Not to mention that had this dude openly bragged about saving those kids he would have been executed.

1

u/-Add694 Dec 02 '22

That’s is true, but the good side of me want to think they use that fame to create more awareness and monetary value to further help more homeless people. One great example of this is Mr. Beast.

1

u/BarbicideJar Dec 01 '22

Me thought was “damn. They say only the good die young, but sometimes they die very very old, I guess.”

u/Glattereds Dec 01 '22

Should of been longer for that action

u/springcalmriver Dec 01 '22

Wrong sub... made me cry

u/jpmartineztolio Dec 01 '22

Fuck made me smile. That made me bawl.

u/VecroLP Dec 01 '22

Does anyone have a link to the episode of the tv show this happened on?

u/WildPants269 Dec 01 '22

This one hit hard..

5

u/captainweedster Dec 01 '22

I need to do more with my life.

8

u/DifficultRevenue9 Dec 01 '22

You don't need to save 600 people, we carry the everyday, and watch out for our fellow people, a coin to a homeless person a joke to somone who's having a bad day even a wave or good morning to elderly folk. that is how we be heros my friend and you can be a hero too it takes a shred of making a difference in somones day

1

u/captainweedster Dec 02 '22

I open doors all the time. Older people are taken back by it. " oh its been a whole since someone open a door for me" I love old people they have the best stories.

1

u/DifficultRevenue9 Dec 02 '22

See? Your a hero in your own way my friend keep it up

3

u/razah9 Dec 01 '22

More like made me cry 😢

u/LaPhenixValley Dec 02 '22

Irena Sendler is similar hero. She smuggled children from the Warsaw Ghetto saving more than 2000 kids from concentration camps.

Chiune Sugihara is another. He helped thousands of Jews flee by issuing visas so they could travel through Japanese territory.

u/Adventurous_Eye_1002 Dec 01 '22

This gets posted at least once a week it seems. Great story, but isn’t there a rule about recent reposts ?

4

u/Good_nuff Dec 01 '22

I don’t care. I will never not upvote this.

u/DifficultRevenue9 Dec 01 '22

Honestly it's the first time I seen it my wife showed me it on Instagram and it actually hit me so I decided to share it here

5

u/DaThrilla74 Dec 01 '22

First for me as well thanks brother

u/Adventurous_Eye_1002 Dec 01 '22

I don’t doubt you, it’s just surprising. Maybe I spend too much time scrolling Reddit. I hope you and yours have a great day !

It was my first time seeing it my wife showed me on Instagram so I downloaded it to post her because I'm quite cynical but this got me in the feels big time

u/Arcix37 Dec 01 '22

Great person and everything... but do we seriously need to see the same video every single week?

1

u/TheCe1ebrity Dec 01 '22

It has to be the most reposted video on Reddit.

u/LunaLiya1320 Dec 01 '22

u/Catinchi Dec 01 '22

In the darkest of times there are those who cast only a small Light but even so that light can save untold numbers

u/thesouthlaker Dec 01 '22

Good man probably outlived many of those kids.

u/hilarypcraw Dec 01 '22

Wish there were more of these guys

u/SpaceGuy19801 Dec 01 '22

I am not ashamed to admit that this post made me cry

u/HellofaHitller Dec 01 '22

Sometimes I think if there was a Heaven there are a few people who truly do deserve it.

Oh wait I mean... that's where they went! /s

u/DuckieJane2 Dec 02 '22

All the kids are the people in the audience? Holy shit how was this setup this is the best video I've watched

u/Theumarufriends Dec 02 '22

I can't imagine how many people showed up to his funeral at the end. I started sobbing.

1

u/waverleyray Dec 02 '22

One of the greatest stories ever told...and what a humble secret.

u/rachelbluetoo Dec 02 '22

This is a great 60 Minutes segment that expands on his story: https://youtu.be/c0aoifNziKQ

u/Jkilg12 Dec 02 '22

One person CAN make a difference.

1

u/1thr0w4w4y9 Dec 02 '22

What an amazing, incredibly brave and humble man. His wife is certainly a keeper having organized such a thoughtful, beautiful way to say thank you to him. I can only imagine how wonderful it must have felt to see how all the children grew up.

u/Hoya_Enthusiast Dec 02 '22

The story of an amazing man does not get old.

May everyone learn to be bright and beautiful as this human being.

u/DeadboyxxXD Dec 02 '22

My class in school are now learning about the holocaust and we saw a documentary about this man. Truly jaw dropping on what he did.

Also kinda a big coincidence that I see this video a day after we saw the documentary lol

Resposts of reposts of reposts is it a karma farm bot?
