Over the years we have seen some truly amazing children display great character and good hearts through courageous acts and charitable deeds.

But unfortunately, for the most part, the news decides not to sensationalize it as much they would a crime story so not many of us get to hear about it.

These young kids make us proud and remind us that there truly is still hope in a world where so many bad things happen. These are the most inspiring stories of young heroes.

  • 7. Two-year-old girl who called 911 to save her mother's life

    Isabelle Keeling, 2, called the emergency services as her mother Joanne suffered a reaction to latex at their home, and was able to give her name, address and telephone number.   She even opened up the front door to let in neighbors and paramedics, who were able to promptly treat her mother.   Just the day before, Isabelle had watched an episode of the children's TV program Tweenies where she had seen how to call 911.

  • 6. Twelve-year-old boy who risked his own life to rescue a baby girl from a 60-foot-deep gorge

    A two and half year old toddler, Aradhana Pradhan, was rescued by Kamal Nepali, 12 years, after a team of professional rescuers all gave up having failed to bring the child back up even after repeated attempts. But even after 22 hours of repeated attempts, the rescuers weren't able to bring the child out.   They started fearing the worst and then Kamal arrived at the scene. His elder brother Salum had told him that only a very small and thin person could manage to get through the very narrow gorge to save the girl.   "A small girl like our own little sister is trapped in the gorge, would you like to go down to rescue her?" Salum had asked Kamal. Immediately after that Kamal had readied himself to go into the gorge.

    Amanda Smith had fainted in the tub and slipped under the water when her 10-year-old son found her.   Aidan pulled the plug out of the bath, grabbed his mom by the hair, dragged her out of the water and put her in the recovery position. He then called his grandma Sheila MacDonald, who works as a domestic worker at Borders General Hospital, to ask for help.   An ambulance was called to take Amanda to the hospital, where she spent three days recovering.

  • 3. Two Hero Kids Saved Lives at Sikh Temple Massacre

    Alexis Goggins, a first-grader at Campbell Elementary School, was hailed as an "angel from heaven" and a hero, for jumping in front of an enraged gunman who pumped six bullets into the child as she used her body as a shield to save her mother's life.   The girl's mother, Selietha Parker, 30, was shot in the left side of her head and her biceps by a former boyfriend, but before he could fire again, Alexis jumped over the seat between her mother and the gunman and begged him not to shoot her mother.

  • 1. Nine-year-old boy gets stabbed in the face while protecting his mother from an intruder

    The boy was stabbed in the face as he fought to save his mum from a knife maniac.
