StoryCorps videos always tug at my heart. This one, A Family Man, tells the story of an incredibly hardworking father who demanded a lot of his 11 kids. This story, told by his son, shows how he got a greater understanding of his dad’s point of view as he got older. It’s touching.

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE VIDEO… AS WELL AS SOME OF MY OTHER FAVORITES!

If you’re unfamiliar with the program, StoryCorps collects and archives interviews with real people all over the country, telling their own personal stories of love, life, struggles and achievements – often with a beautiful lesson along way. They are then catalogued in the Library Of Congress. Some of them get a beautiful animated video to accompany them so that people can better appreciate the story. They often make you want to cry, but ultimately are a lesson in the valuable personal journeys found across all of our lives.

Wait! There’s more! This one makes my heart sing and breaks it at the same time! If you watch any more of these, make it this one. I cried watching it again.

This one is adorable. A 12-year-old boy with Asperger’s syndrome interviews his mother. The child is a genius but has trouble with social skills… the way his mother opens up to her son really speaks to their relationship… it’s beautiful.

And this one is funny and sweet…this old woman is a pistol!

And this is a cute love story born through a mis-sent work email!

Residents At A Care Home In England Have Recreated Iconic Album Covers During Lockdown

That’s one for the photo album.

The coronavirus has brought about a number of tough challenges for folks all around the globe but being quarantined in a care home for four whole months has to be among the toughest. With no visitors and no place to go it would be easy for the residents, as well as the caregivers, to give up hope. Well, entertainment manager Robert Speker over at Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, England found a creative way to keep hope rockin’ with his very photogenic residents and staff.

Over the course of the four month quarantine, Speker worked with some of the home residents and staffers to recreate iconic album covers. His reimagined covers include some of the biggest in music history such as Madonna’s “True Blue,” David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane,” Michael Jackson’s “Bad” and Adele’s “21”…that’s right I am putting Adele in that league. The inspiring photos shared to social media are trending for all the right reasons. One Twitter user wrote “Calendar? I would buy one!” Another asked “do y’all take requests?” And finally one comment which rings truest of all read “This is what social media was made for.”

Check out some of the covers below!

Need Some Good News? Millions Of Baby Turtles Just Made Their Way To The Ocean

Finally, the universe shells out some good news.

Nature is pretty scary right now. There’s a mysterious virus wafting through the air around the world. There are things called murder hornets zipping to places they shouldn’t be zipping to. At any moment I am waiting for the dust bunnies under my bed to grow fangs and turn on me. Alas, among all the bad news there is bound to be some good news and today’s good news comes in the form of baby turtles.

Over on India’s eastern coast lies Odisha’s Gahirmatha Beach, a nesting spot for the endangered Olive Ridley turtles. Each year around this time millions of turtle hatchlings scamper through the sand and make their way to the ocean. The mass nesting typically attracts thousands of tourists who tend to disturb the nesting turtles but because the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the human activity on the beach, more turtles were able to lay their eggs resulting in one of the highest turtles births ever! Perhaps every grey cloud does have a hardened, turtle-shelled lining.

Check out the video of the amazing good news below!
