Pinpricks of light amid the darkness

Just a few of my favorite feel-good stories from 2013.

A school principal in Bellingham, Washington cancelled classes on account of warm, sunny weather.

A hospital in Israel has begun transporting little kids to surgery in pedal cars, rather than on gurneys.

blind man who thought he wouldn’t be able to keep the dog that saved his life is able to keep him after all, thanks to the generosity of strangers.

A Latin American president doesn’t live in a mansion or get chauffeured around in a limousine, but lives like the people he serves.

A restaurant in Colorado employs 40 adults with developmental disabilities, making use of each one’s unique gifts.

An American banker risked his life — repeatedly — to rescue his Vietnamese colleagues and their families, days before the fall of Saigon.

A New York City mailman saved the lives of twin baby boys who were trapped in a burning apartment building.
