Finally, a news story with a happy ending

Having started my college career in broadcast journalism, I have a natural interest in the news. I like to know what’s going on in the world around me.

Maybe it’s just the magnification of social media, but the news has been extremely difficult to read and watch lately. Or perhaps it’s pregnancy hormones… Regardless, there is no denying the hate, sadness, and tragedy that riddle the local and global headlines day after day.

Which is why when I came across this news story headline, I skipped over it several times: Father Refuses to Walk Daughter Down the Aisle. But when I kept seeing some of my normal Facebook friends “liking” it (I know, obviously credible, right?), my curiosity got the best of me.

If you’re in need of a little positivity or reassurance that happy endings can make news stories, too, please take 3 minutes of your day to watch this video. It’s truly a beautiful story.

God bless this family and the amazing medical staff who care for their daughter.
