My nerves are still so jangled after last night’s news that I thought we’d just look at soothing videos today. Here’s one: 100-yearold Woman Sees Ocean for the First Time. Awwww. Ruby Holt spent most of her 100 years on a farm in rural Tennessee, picking cotton and raising four children. When she told the folks at her assisted living center that she had never seen the ocean, they contacted a group that grants wishes to the elderly, and Ruby got her wish. They took her to an Alabama beach and parked her at the Gulf of Mexico (technically still the ocean). Her reaction? “It’s cold.” Awww. Old people.
Whatever you do, don’t read the YouTube comments. It will destroy your faith in humanity all over again. Stay on this page.
