Most people are rushing to be first to assert their superiority. Or rushing to be first, period. They think condescension and rudeness put them above the rest. Anyway, the Internet can be tiring, no? I like the Humans of New York page on Facebook because even if there are negative people in the comments section, they are outnumbered, I think, by the positive ones. And I almost always have a good cry reading those mini stories, even the comments section yield really powerful snippets of people's lives. Complete strangers and simple moments that we often overlook, miles away from here.
