The sun is shining, schoolchildren are laughing and flowers are in bloom. We are thankful, today more than ever, that it is spring and that reminders of the good in the world are all around us.
As we send our thoughts and prayers to everyone in Boston, we also share a few happy photos of spring scenes that we hope will help shed some positive light even in these dark times. Click through our slideshow and please head over to our Impact vertical to find out how you can help those affected.
