Some days, it feels like the news is nothing but depressing stories. The political climate in the U.S. is in shambles, terrorist attacks are happening around the world, and the refugee crisis has left people across Africa and the Middle East without homes for years. Social media is no longer a place to escape to, but to feel depressed by and therefore completely avoid. It’s enough to make a person feel like she can’t make a difference.
