Remember, Things Are Better Than They Seem…There’s Photographic Proof!

Much gratitude is due to Buzzfeed for this lovely and timely sequence of  “21 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity,” of which the photo above is one. Yes, I’m sure one or more may be photoshopped. At this point, I really do not care.

I don’t know about you, but I need a little reinforcement today.

  1. Well, it contradicts the dogma of the “People Are No Damn Good” cynics. Thanks for making my morning — better than a 2nd cup of coffee.

  2. Then I looked at all pix — tears in eye. Re Pic #5: who is Snooki?

    I’ll add without a pic: young woman, San Fran med student who saw web appeal, gave her bone marrow to stranger, 10-yr-old girl with leukemia at Cedars-Sinai Hosp in LA, a painful process. Child now in remission.

    • The poll was right, you really don’t care. Consider yourself among the lucky that you don’t know who Snooki is.

  3. I had the same attitude, Jack. Shared this on FB yesterday and did not care if photoshop was involved or not… I needed a feel good moment 🙂

  4. I received that same link yesterday. Finally, a beautiful, good thing went viral. Loved it. Thanks for posting and reminding me.

  5. Thank you for posting that. Seeing in toward the end of my day on Friday was just what I needed to get me through until 8 p.m. tonight.

  6. Late to the party after stumbling on your blog, but I can attest that the sign is real. It is at the Paradox book store in Wheeling WV. Back in the 80s, Tom, the owner and sole employee, used to put a sign on the desk asking you to pay for your books while he was out, or if you needed help, then come find him in the bar on the other side of the Market (although I think he stopped doing that, and doesn’t go to the bar as often).
