History May Not Remember This Speech, But I Guarantee That You Will

Back in the dark ages of 2009, marriage equality had yet to become the law of the land in the state of New York. During a tense and uncertain debate, state Senator Diane Savino took the floor in support of the bill: What follows is seven minutes and 33 seconds that wasn't on the winning side that day but will definitely stand the test of time.



The highlights:
  • [2:00] She really gets going.

Part of what made him such a beloved singer was the uniqueness of his voice. From the time he was a young child singing lead for The Jackson 5, his high-pitched vocals stood out. Hearing him sing live was impressive, his pitch-perfect performances always entertaining.

A viral video from a Little League game has people celebrating good sportsmanship.

Youth sports have gotten more intensely competitive, to the point where overeager parents and coaches have to regularly be reminded to take it down a notch. So when humanity takes precedence over team rivalries, it's extra heartwarming.

And considering how many "kids these days" laments we see coming from older generations, it's also heartening to see kids showing excellent character qualities when no one directly asked them to.

A viral video from a Little League baseball game is giving us a nice dose of both—good sportsmanship and basic human kindness from two players from opposing teams.
