After a tragedy like the mass shooting in Orlando, it’s easy to buy into the notion that the world is full of demons and that our society is just a small push away from crumbling under the influence of its evil-doers. But amidst the chaos it’s important to look around and make light of all the good people out there whose small, charitable acts of kindness, far outweigh the villains, bullies and terrorists who wish to control us through fear. These cowards’ efforts are futile, and and instead their evil acts only embolden the good people to band together and rally around a single cause. Look no further than the lines of blood donors a mile long, in Florida, of everyday folks looking to help out the victims of this senseless incident.
We are a nation of the free, and let this gallery be a beacon of light and a reminder of why the world is still full of warm and wonderful people. Let it remind us of the overwhelming power of good.
