Some Heartwarming Stuff Because We Need It

It's been a little rough writing and reading about so much awful stuff every day as Lord Dampnut sounds more and more like the KKK/fucking Hitler while stadiums full of his supporters cheer him on. It's also been rough because I'm really trying to open myself up and let myself feel stuff instead of suppressing every emotion to cope. So I'm going to try and post some more positive stuff, and also it might help you feel better.

Firstly, this video of Ilhan Omar's supporters welcoming her home to Minnesota at the airport is really about to make me cry.

They're actually chanting "welcome home, Omar" in the most heartwarming defiance of a wannabe dictator fascist who told her to go back to where she came from. Because the U.S. and Minnesota are her home. She belongs here and I love her.

Then there's this ad for a Dublin-based bus company or Dublin's public transportation department or whatever showing young LGBTQ+ people inviting their senior counterparts to Pride because they had never been before. I was actually asked to write an article about this for a site you might want to bookmark called Tank's Good News. I don't know who Tank is but the website is just heartwarming stories.

Video Of Young People Inviting LGBT+ Seniors To Their First Pride Has Everyone Crying

You don't really need to read the article, just watch the video.

There are so many good people in the world. Evil people tend to hoard all the money and power so they're hard to fight, but no matter what it's a comfort to know that there are so many good people out there who are full of love and acceptance instead of judgment and hate.

What's also making me tear up is this quote from the Talmud, attributed to Rabbi Tarfon:

“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.”

Thanks, man, I'll try.
