On August 19, 2021, or World Photography Day, we celebrate some of the most recent heartwarming pictures on the internet! The pandemic has pushed our ability to persevere, resulting in events that have led us to re-examine our own resilience. We all know someone or perhaps are someone who has tested their own boundaries. While one can by no means be reductive or oversimplify the extent of the atrocities that Covid-19 resulted in, we can still celebrate people around the world who came together in a collective moment of strength while struggling with their own limitations.

Below, we revisit photographs of strength and perseverance in India and around the world:
