15 Happy Headlines That Distracted Us From The Doom, The Gloom, And Whatever Elon Musk Is Up To

Ah, the year 2023! It's kind of been a wild ride so far, and it's only getting crazier. From the legalization of marijuana in Illinois to the end of conversion therapy in Utah, the world is changing faster than ever. We've seen Michael Jordan give an incredible donation to Make-A-Wish, a British couple get an unexpected windfall from the High Court, and a Ukrainian family finally reunited after nearly a decade. And that's just the beginning. 

Let's take a look at some of the most interesting developments of the past few months. We've got a Universal Basic Income experiment in Chicago, a revolutionary gene therapy helping a 19-month-old in the UK, a chance for prior offenders to join the legal marijuana business in New Jersey, a Powerball winner donating every penny of his winnings to charity, and a TikTok video giving a family restaurant a much-needed boost. It's been an incredible few months, and it looks like the future is only getting brighter. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!
