A powerful photo can move us in some really amazing ways. They can make us cry, smile, laugh out loud, and even pause for a moment of silence.
Regardless of the emotion, really amazing photos make us think about human nature and what life means to us.
Some photos are so powerful that they have become viral sensations on the internet, even though they were taken many years ago.
From a falling man during 2011’s terrorist attack on the World Trade Center buildings, to a soldier nursing a kitten back to health during the Korean War — these photos will blow your mind.
Photo #6 literally started an entire social movement that lasted more than a decade.

This is one of the most stunning photos we have ever seen. The patient laying on the table would go on to make a complete recovery after a very long surgery. Dr. Religa (pictured) looks weary after a very long procedure. In the corner of the room his assistant has fallen asleep, no doubt exhausted an incredibly stressful day at the side of an operating table. His patient not only survived but also outlived the doctor.
