The Most Inspiring Moments of 2011

December 23, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

With Christmas just a couple of days away and many people having already started their holiday vacations, today should be a happy, light-hearted day.  With that having been said, I’m going to skip any discussion of politics until after the holidays.  We should all just enjoy the spirit of the season right now.

I came across this video this morning from Yahoo going through some of the most inspiring moments of 2011.  It includes the recovery of Gabrielle Giffords, the humanitarian efforts following the tornado in Joplin and tsunami in Japan and, just for good measure, the story of a parapalegic young man who walked to receive his diploma.

It’s a wonderful little tribute to some of the good that is going on in the world right now.  It’s so easy to get caught up in all of the negative both at a global level and in our personal lives and it’s nice to have reminders like these every once in a while to tell us to be thankful for what we have and who we have around us.
