If anything good comes of the inexplicably terrible, it's the reminder that good people, selfless people are out there. Watching footage of the Boston Marathon explosion yesterday one of the first things I noticed was people running towards the explosion site seconds after the bomb went off. I watched and wondered: Would that have been my first instinct? I don't know. But when we feel down about the state of the world, sometimes it's good to remember all the individual acts of good in the face of what seems like unending violence. If only it didn't take such a terrible tragedy to remind us.
