The Shores of Alone
Generally I am a bit(!) frustrated with humanity as a whole, but everytime a see a news story about firemen/women going straight into a burning building to save someone, it is a restorative moment. This is something that amazes me without fail, that someone is brave enough to walk STRAIGHT into a horrible fire, even if they don't know if someone is there, just on the off chance that there may be. I have seen them do it for pets, which always chokes me up as an animal lover. But when they bring a little child out of a fire, God, how can you not feel some sort of faith in the goodness of people. At least THOSE people. I live near a city that lost 4 firemen in a terrible disaster last year, and it was accidentally set by homeless people in an abandoned warehouse. For their info, there was likely no one there, but they went in anyway, and now they are dead.
Another thing that has honestly changed my mind about people, is the caring I have found within these pages, with so many truly beautiful hearts.
Now as for the rest of the world..well, I have nothing much good to say, though I'm sure it is there somewhere.
