SPONSORED

Humanity has witnessed quite a lot of wonderful events that show goodness and concern for each other. There's happiness, sadness, anger, sympathy, apathy, and disasters. It has all been captured. Throughout history, we have seen bravery and courage triumph over corruption and disasters. The end of wars, the end of genocides, the end of slavery etc show that all bad things come to an end. But so does the good. And sometimes, humanity comes into question.

History has taught us that nothing is permanent. If we gain something, we could easily lose it as well. 

Death and loss are not uncommon in history. But to deal with it takes serious courage and bravery. How do you pick yourself up, when you don't have anything to live for? That's the lion-hearted strength I'm talking about.

Here are 17 photos that have truly captured the most significant events of humanity that depict fascination.
