They prove last year wasn't a total disaster
Push away the thought of that negative headline you read for just a moment. Much of the news in 2018 was bad: horrible crimes, new viral outbreaks, natural disasters, the passing of legends... what about the good stuff that happened?

They're also uplifting to read whenever you're feeling down.
