People are awesome

A great way to start the day
Today I woke up to this video being posted on my facebook wall. It really resonated with me. I think so often we focus on the negatives in others, particularly stranger; we live in fear and mistrust. That is after all why we put up security cameras. I thought this video did a good job of challenging that assumption. It shows that random people do random acts of kindness all the time. I think that is such a key realization, that people do such good. That we are, each and every one of us, a kind-hearted person who wants to love and look out for others.
So watch this video, smile, maybe shed a tear and remember that people are awesome and kind and loving and so are you!
