* Even HPLovecraft gets one. He regarded himself as a sickly coward for much of his life (likely one reason his AuthorAvatar Randolph Carter served in the [[LegionOfLostSouls French Foreign Legion]] at WorldWarOne).

* In the winter of 1981, construction crews working across the street from the Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle spotted a big sign up in a window there: ''Hi, I'm Gail.'' The men put up their own signs, "hi," "good morning" and so on. The communication went on through Christmas and into the new year. The men all assumed that modern medicine would save the little girl, the six-year-old granddaughter of Chebanse, Illinois construction workers. After a bone marrow transplant in March 1982, she couldn't come to the window any more, so the men started coming to her. They attended her birthday party and presented her with a hard hat. When she started to fade, even the non-religious workers began praying. On April 12, 1982, Gail Yoho's mother posted a sign in the window. ''Thank you for caring. Gail says goodbye.''

While the West is mostly familiar with Hello Kitty. Sanrio also created alot of very lovable characters that would do very kind and nice things in their universe. [[PreciousPuppy Such as Cinnamoroll]], who loves making Cinnamon rolls and hanging out with his friends as well as having the ability to fly using his long ears or [[Anime/OnegaiMyMelody My Melody]] who is very optimistic and is good friends with Hello Kitty. But Special mention, goes to their latest popular character named Mell from Wish Me Mell who is meant to be a character that expresses the feelings everyone has. But the real heartwarming moment is how Sanrio treated the character. On its official debut, the main character design was not revealed and that the character "Just won't come out" of her egg-shaped house. Sanrio stated that her official release describes her as being "withdrawn" and implores her fans to send her as many messages and Tweets as possible to encourage her to show her face. A month later in 2011, the character was finally revealed and started gaining tons of popularity for Japanese fans. Once the character started gaining popularity in later years, Sanrio created an [[http://ameblo.jp/wish-me-mell/ official character blog for Mell on a Japanese blogging website called Ameblo.]] [[https://vine.co/u/1103277496285208576 and recently a Vine Account.]] It's extremely cute and heartwarming to see how much love and appreciation they would give to their characters as well as the fans.

*** Sanrio is also so popular in Japan that they even have their own theme parks in Japan one called "Sanrio Puroland' and the other is "Harmony Land" which is dedicated to everything related to Sanrio and each character. Each park every once in a while would have a show starring a character such as Cinnamoroll, or Hello Kitty and would deal with a some good or bad situations or would sometimes celebrate a holiday such as Easter,Christmas, or Halloween (Especially in Sanrio Puroland). But there is one attraction for both of their theme parks that really shows their appreciation of cuteness. Their is an attraction called "Sanrio Character Boat Ride" which is hosted by Cinnamoroll and would guide riders through various universes for each Sanrio character that got their invitation to Hello Kitty's Wedding with Dear Daniel. In the final, you will see all most all of the company's characters at attending Hello Kitty's Wedding with a cute song that is sang by Cinnamoroll and friends. The attraction ends with chimes playing in the background as you are heading back to the loading area and the last thing you see before leaving is Hello Kitty and other popular Sanrio characters saying farewell to the rider as your leaving the ride [[note]] In the Harmony Land version[[/note]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdXhvS5WCiM or seeing Cinnamoroll and his friends saying a goodbye message]].

[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gr2YKKBsrJ8 Sanrio responded to the event by making this short music video titled "Messages of support from the Sanrio characters" featuring various Sanrio character holding hands and moving in tune to the music]], it's very sweet to see Sanrio do something like this to remember in dark times they still find a way to cheer up and show hope for people in Japan.

* When ChristopherReeve was told he would never be able to move from the neck down again, he mouthed to his wife, Dana Morosini, "maybe we should let me go." She tearfully replied, "I am only going to say this once: I will support whatever you want to do, because this is your life, and your decision. But I want you to know that I'll be with you for the long haul, no matter what. You're still you. And I love you." Reeve never considered suicide as an option again and today, he is remembered as a great hero far more than just playing ''Film/{{Superman}}'' on film.

The hearse bearing the People's Princess to her final rest [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wLl2dKgXwQ looked more like a Flowermobile]], showered with blossoms from the masses of people who lined the route. The driver had to stop several times just to clean them off the windscreen and place them gently at the side of the road.

* Actor Creator/AdamDevine was almost killed after being hit by a 42-tonne cement truck when he was just 11. After being in a coma for 2 weeks, he discovered that he had broken all the bones in both his legs, had circulatory shock, and a collapsed lung. During the experience, Adam remained positive that he would walk again, even though his extensive injuries could result in his legs being amputated. Throughout his time away from school, he would ring into his local radio station and do celebrity impersonations. He discovered the power of comedy in uniting people and bringing hope, and after 26 surgeries and years of recovery, he could fully walk again. Fast-forward to 2016/2017, and Adam is the spokesperson for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, the same organisation that helped him when he was a child. Adam regularly visits the children in hospital, and offers hope to them that they can get better.
