Weekend Happy Thoughts

Sometimes you run across a story that gives you pause, makes your day and generally restores a considerable chunk of your faith in humanity. As you might have guessed, we stumbled across one of those this afternoon and - all snark asid - thought we'd share it with y'all:

Sarah Patel doesn't know how to skate, but that didn't stop the visually impaired teen from taking to the ice during Courage Canada's Learn to Skate program. 

The 18-year-old Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute student was one of some 15 Toronto District School Board (TDSB) students who participated in the program Wednesday, Feb. 15 at Weston Lions Recreation Arena near Weston Road and Lawrence Avenue.

... And that's all we're going to post, not because it's not a great story — because it is — but because you should take the time to read it in its entirety. It'll make your weekend.
