Good is alive and well if we'll just let it shine through.

Thank you for the post.

Really touching to see older people acknowledge that things can be hard for younger people. As a younger person it gets tiresome hearing older people talk about how lazy we are or how much harder things were back in the day. What a nice video.

Y'all're missing the point.

This isn't a thread just for encomiums of Hugo's OP vid. Further, it's the new parking space for groovy, power-of-positivity, "Be excellent to each other" type of material.

You did a good thing here, Wos. I wish I had it on video to post.

Also, thank you for making me google encomium. I pledge to use it in conversation at least twice today.

This Lake Belongs to Everyone
A city on Lake Erie convinced its waterfront property owners to give the public their waterfronts for free. It’s a case that could transform the Great Lakes forever.

The good news here is that the more people that enjoy a place, the more people care for and about it. The good folks of Euclid will want to take better care of their lake once they get to know it.

I too pledge to use the word encomium today. In fact, Jim, that's a wonderful encomium that you've posted there for Wos.

Dang it you two. Y’all ain’t ready for encomium, yet. First you have to mythos, diegema, chreia, gnome ... yadda, yadda, yadda, then you get to encomiate.

No shortcuts!
