Because We All Need A Reminder That People Can Be Awesome

I’m a generally positive person, but lemme tell you these past few weeks have been a bit of a downer. Maybe it’s the end of the summer. Maybe it’s because my baby is officially in preschool.

Maybe it’s also because people who spew hate gain popularity and the oppressed and marginalized continue to suffer the consequences. And I feel so powerless in the wake.

So I decided to pull together a few stories that remind me that people are awesome.

We need each other, friends. Let love be the mark we leave on this world.
