5 Stories That Will Help You Remember The Good In The World

5 Stories That Will Help You Remember The Good In The World

Take a moment to forget all the politics and crime going on around us.

At Whit's End

With Trump's inauguration, our social media and news feeds are crowded and filled with so many political posts and arguments that we miss so many other stories of amazing survival and humor. We are too caught up in who's who in terms of Democrat and Republican and feminist and not; there's nothing wrong with either side except for the fact we have become blind to the joy we should be noticing. Check out just five stories and videos I found when I looked below the main posts of the most recent protests and fires started. It's time to take a break and forget the bad that has happened... and see the good still left in the world.

1. The amazing story of how one mom survived without lungs for 6 days.

Yup, you read that right! This mom was able to continue living a great life with her family after surviving 6 days without lungs to overcome cystic fibrosis. Get away from the Trump drama and check out the entire story, video, and photos on CNN.

2. J.K. Rowling sent a Syrian girl Harry Potter books to distract her from the war.

This story broke my heart, especially after following young Bana on Twitter @AlabedBana to get her story myself. Visit CNN to understand real pain felt by a brave girl.

3. Or how about the total "awwww" tale of one dog rescuing another from rapid water?

I can't even begin to describe the heart strings this one pulled as I watched it. If you watch anything today, watch the footage caught by the dogs' owner, Rafael Franciulli, on Life Daily.

4. This Daddy-daughter duet just confirms the fact we need more of this innocence in our news.

Ok, maybe it's just the Disney-loving-inner-child in me but I cannot get enough of this duo! See the video and story of the cutest duet you have ever seen of "You've Got a Friend in Me", and find more Disney duets by this adorable pair, on Eyewitness News at 3.

5. I don't know the bride who dressed up as a T-rex for the "first look"... but I want to be her.

I mean really.... how GREAT is this?! His reaction is even better! Check it out on today.com.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
