Because as bad as civil discourse on social media can get, there are people who prove that when the fecal matter impacts the turbine the good get going. Case in point: the Cajun Navy.http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/ct-cajun-navy-hurricane-harvey-20170828-story.html
These are folks who dropped everything, hitched up their boats, and drove for hours on the chance that they can rescue people in their darkest hour. Not because someone was paying them or they were forced to at gunpoint, but because of an altruistic desire to save lives. One guy in the article reports rescuing forty people. Forty Frickin’ People.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I’m generally optimistic when it comes to people.
