I was re-watching Red Nose Day Actually and a line said by the Prime Minister really struck me as relevant in the days following the Manchester attack:

Wherever you see tragedy you see bravery too. Wherever you see ordinary people in need you see extraordinary ordinary people come to their aid.

And I feel like that sums up the good that has appeared in the wake of the attack. It was an absolute tragedy, but you shouldn’t forget the acts of bravery and kindness; homeless men who rushed towards the danger to help, strangers opening their homes to stranded victims, hundreds of people turning out to give blood, cabbies offering free rides, hundreds of thousands of pounds raised by the public to support the affected families.

To me that line is relevant and inspirational and it made me think of the other lines in films that had done the same in both small and big ways, and so I decided to compile some of my favourites in the list bellow. Enjoy.
