Looking to be uplifted?

Even if just for a moment?

I don't know about you but after Friday's tragic, devastating, horrifying and downright heart-wrenching school shooting, I think I was subconsciously looking to be uplifted during my online browsing over the weekend.  This post crossed my path many times over the last few days and, while I do like that one a lot, it's the below video that really caught my attention and had me coming back for just one more view.  I'm not a child but I still need reassurance that there's goodness in the world.  This video gives me a little bit of hope that we can overcome this kind of devastation.  Even though we may not have lost a direct friend or family member in Newtown, every single one of us lost something.  I hope this video lifts you up for just a moment.....

Note: I discovered this video on Design Mom's Friday post.


  1. I think this video is from a few years ago, I think I remember seeing it with my son, but it is worth seeing again, and I loved it!
    I tried to look at the other blog, but I can't get to it,might just be my computer freezing up.
    Thanks, I did need to see something uplifting!

    1. You may want to check out that very first link near the top of my post ~ 26 Moments That Restored Our Faith In Humanity This Year ~ that is also incredibly uplifting.

    2. Hey! I am surprised at how many of those I already knew! And you know the students who blocked out those protesters at the funeral? I did a post about a soldier's funeral back in March, where I witnessed this, the Patriot Guard standing outside at attention. It was very moving.
      I truly look for inspiring stories, and I know you do too!
