Just when I was thinking, “Oh no- it’s Thursday and I haven’t found a feel good story yet!” I found one. This clip, courtesy of my favorite news station in Sacramento, reminded me of how easy I had it at 18.

(Thanks Mom and Dad!)
These teens, both of whom grew up very differently than I, remind me that those who find success do so not just through hard work, but compassion.
