President Obama just reminded us that the world is not all bad

Show This To Everyone

Posted by Brandon Jarvis

Today President Obama took to Twitter to spread the news about the good things that actually did happen in 2017. I know it may feel like the world is downwardly spirally at times – it actually may be – but at least there are good people still doing good things.

He started with a story about a wedding planner and couple that postponed their weddings and turned a replacement event into a volunteer movement.

“It all started as what was supposed to be a substitute activity for a wedding party that was postponed because of Hurricane Harvey. Kat Creech was Sarah Samad and Mohsin Dhukka’s wedding planner. After the couple decided that they wanted to postpone the Sept. 3 wedding, Creech thought of the idea to organize the couple’s wedding guests’ activity–volunteering.” Read the entire story here.

Next he talks about Chris Long, a NFL player that donated his entire seasons’ salary to Charlottesville.

Long, who already gave away his first six game checks to fund scholarships for students in his hometown of Charlottesville, Va., announced on Wednesday that he will use his final 10 game checks to launch Pledge 10 for Tomorrow, a campaign that will promote educational equity and opportunity for underserved youth in the three NFL cities he’s played in – Philadelphia, Boston, and St. Louis.

He then pointed out a 10-year-old helping homeless people in Chicago.

“Jahkil has been on a mission to help homeless men, women and children ever since his great-aunt brought him to Lower Wacker Drive to hand out chili and soup to the people camped out there. He was 5 at the time.” Read the entire story here.

He then ends on an inspirational note.

Thanks Obama.
