Sometimes I get so down thinking about all the bad stuff we humans do.
It seems like most good deeds are so small in comparison to the rest of the world and that we don’t have the power to change much.
We are also so inundated with “inspirational” messages and images, they can lose the power to move us. I rarely watch or post such things for that very reason.
But occasionally something is so clear and unsullied, so beautiful, it deserves to be unabashedly shared.
If you need a break from all of the season’s white noise, watch these every day heroes do the right thing. I know it filled my heart with gladness and joy.
