I visited Dooce today, like I do every day, sometimes what she writes is funny, sometimes it's touching, sometimes she posts cute pictures...whatever it is I am usually entertained when I go there. Today was no exception, however what I was not expecting was to cry. She posted this video and it didn't take very long into the video for there to be tears streaming down my face, not out of sadness but more out of hope maybe and maybe tenderness and maybe also because I just wished I could hug each of these people. I don't know if you'll appreciate it as much if you were never Mormon but you should watch it anyways. I wish everyone would just be nice to each other.

Also kind of going along with that is this quote I found today on She Takes Flight:
I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason.
