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.

1. Gloucester, MA Police are making a difference in the fight against opioid addiction – by treating addicts as people with an illness, not criminals.


2. Iceland Caps Syrian Refugees at 50; More Than 10,000 People Respond With Support for Syrian Refugees
