Hope for the human race comes in strange packages.

September 13, 2006

I just stumbled upon PostSecret. This is a blog where the author posts scanned postcards sent in with secrets written on them anonymously- the rules being that the barer of said secret has told no one before. Reading the blog was mood-altering; funny and also tearful in a good way. It’s so human and the impact of telling someone is so significant. That makes it good, as does the simplicity of the project.

Someone decided to create thisĀ  site and continues to do so. That fact, and its consequences, give me hope. Is that strange? I can’t explain so well why this is so.
