Michael Stolzenberg, middle name Best Kid EVAR, is responsible for my renewed faith in humanity. He also has no arms and legs due to an aggressive, gangrenous infection in 2008. In the words of my Significant Other: "That still HAPPENS?" (Unfortunately, yes.)

In response to the tragedy in Boston, Michael and his older brother Harris have set up their own charity called Mikey's Run, the proceeds of which will go to "providing assistance and prosthesis to those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings."

I love it when kids are awesome. It reminds me the world has hope.
