2017 was dominated by negative news and one particular loud-mouthed individual grabbing all the headless. And as a result, dozens of incredible stories were drowned out.

So as the year came to end, MassMutual - the brand that stands for people protecting people - decided to give a voice to some of 2017's most inspiring stories you may have missed.

We partnered with Great Big Story and turned each of these six incredible acts of human kindness into short documentaries to give them the attention and spotlight they deserve.

"Bikers against Bullies"


"A Test of Faith"


"Mr Adderley"


"We Dine Together"


"This is Victor"


"The Texas Navy"
