Following the hostage crisis in Sydney, Australia many Muslims in the country felt nervous about potential backlash against their faith. Instead, Australians are taking up the banner of #IllRideWithYou on social media, encouraging those who fear retaliation to ride public transit with those who support and care for them.


Another heartwarming example of social media doing good in the world, and the Australian people setting an example for the kind of behavior we should all have in response to trying times as these.

Earlier today a student armed with a knife at Franklin Regional Senior High School near Pittsburgh, PA attacked and injured at least 20 students. Several have been hospitalized with serious injuries but no deaths have been reported as of this time. Thinking quickly, student Nate Scimio pulled the fire alarm and alerted other students of the emergency. After he was taken to the hospital, this selfie happened.

Frankly, making some derisive comment about "kids these days" seems totally unwarranted when the kid involved likely saved lives. Of course, that didn't stop the press from asking for interviews and snarky comments like this:



Selfie earned, selfie deserved, Mr. Scimio.
