    Cheer Up Thread

    With all the trouble in the world, I thought it a good idea to start a cheer up thread of good things.

    I will start with this. It is a young boy who sees his mom and the world for the first time with his special glasses.

    A wonderful video story if you have a few minutes to spare. (18 minutes in length)

    It is a bittersweet "cheer up" post because it is so inspirational and it reminds of who we really are.

    Thank you Sags for starting this thread. Lately it seems like society is regressing, but stories and pictures like these give hope to our humanity.

    Music always cheer me up. I think sags posted this one somewhere else, but it is one of my favourites too.

    Farmer brings water to wild animals in drought-stricken Kenya

    When he's not helping thirsty animals, Mwalua is a pea farmer and the founder of the wildlife and conservation nonprofit Tsavo Volunteers. As part of that group, he visits schools to talk to kids about wildlife conservation.

    As Mwalua writes, "I choose to stand for animals and please do stand with me to save these wonderful creatures."

    this is a bit dull & sedate, but for the topsy-turvy US of A these days it's good news. The first woman & the first african-american has just been sworn in as Librarian of Congress.

    Dr. Carla Hayden is also the first professional librarian since 1974 to hold the LC's top job.

    the plain title belies the grandeur of Hayden's job. With 162 million items in its collection, including george gershwin's piano, the Library of Congress is the biggest in the world. Its imprimatur on knowledge? the LC runs the US Copyright Service. Nothing gets published without it.

    Hayden, whose career has been marked by bringing library services into homes, schoolrooms & offices via the internet, says she wants to keep the "specialness" of the venerable library but she also intends to make it much more "familiar" to americans.
