These days I’m spending less and less time on the Internet. I’ve started to lose my faith in humanity.

When I log into social media, there’s always something sparking outrage. Everyone seems so hateful and divided. It’s hard to remain hopeful about the state of the world.

Luckily, we have these wholesome pieces of content to remind us, there IS good in the world.

We have the capacity for so much love and compassion.
