The triumph of gratitude

The past year has not been an easy one. From personal to political loss, most people I know have struggled at some time during the past 12 months to hold on to their optimism and ideals. I am no exception. Which is why I actively look for stories and organizations that renew my spirit, gird me for the hard work ahead, and fill me with gratitude. Here’s one of my favorites: a beautifully filmed four-minute video about the New Life Center, a safe and joyous home for children living with HIV/AIDS and their caretakers. Gratitude, hope, heart — it will inspire all of these, I promise.
