    O.K., so many people here are so depressed and think that the world is totally devoid of beauty and compassion. Well, I thought it would be fun and inspiring to post things we have seen that inspire us and give us hope that humanity and this World are not all bad. In fact, there is so much love and beauty out there that we just don't see on the nightly news. I'll start.

    A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together. One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes'. For those who didn't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island Father and son went on to complete the race together.
