It's important to remember that sometimes, people are innately good. While there are fires currently burning down the earth (both literally and figuratively), there are also lots of kindhearted individuals floating around in space, looking for connection.
A lovely example of the goodness of humanity unfolded when Brighton resident Pat Obyrne posted that she was lonely and craving a roast dinner on Facebook.
She was soon flooded with responses from strangers ready to forge a friendship over dinner. Here's a cute photo of her for reference.

She wrote that due to disability, it was extra difficult for her to get out to enjoy the hot meal of her choice.
She soon received a stream of invitations to roast dinner from strangers on the internet.
In fact, her post rendered her popular in no time.
Reading the thread of genuine and sweet responses from strangers on the internet managed to warm my icy heart.
It's good to remember there are corners of the internet where kindness reigns.
One stranger even made sure Obyrne was added to other meal groups. So, the next time she's craving a hot casserole dinner she can hit up a whole different group of friends.
The interaction between strangers was so lovely it even melted the icy hearts of Twitter.
It also bodes well for people who love a good roast dinner.
BRB, filing this thread for the next time I lose faith in humanity.
