News Stories That Have Me in Tears This Morning

Three things in my social feeds have left my cheeks wet, for very different reasons.
  1. Donna Ferrato's story in the Mother Jones, "How the War on Women Was Won"
    After traveling across the country to document the effects of new restrictions on abortion, Ferrato shares harrowing tales of hardships and scare tactics used against vulnerable young women trying to make an educated choice for their bodies and futures. http://bit.ly/1fUQLgj
  2. Watching Rachel Platten sing "This is my fight song" with a 7-year old cancer warrior
  3. Sharing the BBC's Steve Backshell's enthusiasm after spotting a blue whale in Monterey, CA
