I Always Want To Shield Myself...

...from stories that depress me. Such as blogs that are about ill children. But I read one today... And it gave me a little perspective. Ignorance may be bliss, but knowing that there are bad things in this world can make you appreciate the good things even more. Even in the saddest story, there is joy. And even in the most painful moment, there is something beautiful. I'm grateful for a reminder of this. I needed one.

I can't say much more except to agree with you right there :)
