You know, on a cold winter day, when you've been driving around and listening to the Spring Awakening soundtrack like an angsty 11th-grader and feeling down about things in genereal, sometimes something remarkable can happen. For instance a plane can emergency land on the Hudson River - with no fatalities. And then tons of people can rush to help out. And you get pictures like this:

On Tuesday we get Barack Obama being sworn in as President. I'm thinking that will be an amazing moment as well. But in difficult times, it's miraculous moments like the plane in the Hudson that help put you back in a positive place. It's great when something unexpected can capture your heart and your imagination as you think of what is really possible in the world.

Mad props to pilot Chesley Sullenberger III, the crew of the plane and all the responders on the river that helped rescue the survivors. It's really remarkable.
