Very rarely am I moved to comment on anything these days with the saturation of negative imagery, news, divisiveness, and demagoguery dominating every media outlet. However, this morning I came across two images over social media worth sharing. Unfortunately I do not have any information about the people in the photos or the photographers who captured the following images, but the two images stirred me to tears this morning and restored my faith in humanity in a world seemingly brimming with hatred for fellow humankind. In spite of demagoguery, imperialism, small-mindedness, and xenophobia, there is a glimmer of hope yet….
