If the current news cycle has troubled or discouraged you, consider tending to your soul with the story of Hazel Hammersley. Hazel is a 2-year-old cancer patient at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She’s also the recent recipient of stacks of pizzas from strangers on the internet. Hazel’s mother and grandmother put up a masking tape sign in the window of her room and soon after, Reddit happened. Three cheers for humanity!
