A short story: we as in us. (Part 1)

I recognise that the world is a better place when there is a little positivity - in an encouraging note, a smile to a random stranger, a sincere "How are you", and an unexpected hello. I believe the goodness of God is reflected in the goodness of people, regardless of whether or not they believe in His existence. I believe that Love can change the world, only if we let it.
