There are certainly days when reading stories about children around the world could give you pause in all the wrong ways, but I would say that there are even more posts that give me hope that the future may not be as bleak as we feared.
And these 14 kids definitely make me look forward to all of the tomorrows to come.

5. If a 3yo understands tipping, you would think more adults would, too.
Today this little 3yr old tried to pay for her family’s dinner with a Barbie credit card. I took the card and made her a little check out to make it seem like she did and she tipped me 3$? pic.twitter.com/jkDOk8ZT7i
