I finally found the win while listening to a morning radio show called Brooke and Jubal. They aired a segment called "Feel Good Covid-19 Stories" where they highlighted wins such as the two individuals in their 20s in New York City who decided to recruit volunteers to procure and deliver groceries to the elderly among them. In the first 72 hours after issuing the call for volunteers, 1300 people signed up and together they formed the group, Invisible Hands, to help those in need.
Another win they mentioned was in Spain, where a woman was self-isolating on her 80th birthday. She received a phone call telling her to look out her window and when she did, she found over 60 neighbors on their porches and balconies singing happy birthday to her.
In these troubles times restaurants have opened their doors to provide free lunches to students who are out of school. Artists and illustrators, such as Mo Willems, have gone online with enrichment programs to keep our kids busy and learning. When the frustration gets to me, sometimes these stories are all it takes to find the win in humanity itself. I hope you will follow the link below, listen to the rest of the segment, and take the time to smile.
