Sometimes we should stop and think about the things we do and the decisions we make because, from time to time, we might miss something really important. Social ads help us reflect on our actions. Take a look at a plastic grenade or a guy who survived a car accident thanks to a seat belt and ask yourself: What if I really do have the power to make this world a better place?

Enlighten warns: these photos are jarring, but perhaps they’ll help us make the right decision one day.
