Sometimes the world does not suck

Sometimes the world does not suck

I tend to write posts when I am pissed. Now this is great motivation, but unrelenting gloom and doom tends to leave me ridiculously depressed, and pessimistic about the fate of the world. So this is a post for good news, my readers. Because sometimes the world does not suck!

what is happening in this world that makes you think that the world is cool after all? Leave in comments.

    Their hope is my hope and their joy is my joy. Thank you for this wonderful video.

    What I have to share happened a while back, but in 2002 my old high school, Crete-Monee High, voted a lesbian couple Cutest Couple for the yearbook. When the administration panicked and balked, the students staged a walkout. The administration allowed the yearbook to go forward as planned.

    The school is literally surrounded by corn fields and is roughly 60% African-American — rural AND Black, two groups very often accused of homophobia.

    A more recent “the world is cool after all:” I ran into a canvasser today from our local food shelf Sisters Camelot: a group of folks who run an all-organic food shelf from a bus, distributing food to whoever wants it without asking for ID, verification of income, or anything. You want good, healthy food? They give it to you.

  • What a beautiful moment for these two women. May this event presage more of the same, unmolested by the fears of the ignorant. Thanks for sharing this with ABW readers!
