    Hello ASCE friends,

    With still so much uncertainty and chaos in the world right now, many like me are stressed and somewhat overwhelmed. To manage my stress, I have personally limited my news consumption while also actively seeking out funny content (as laughter is a great form of stress release).

    Keeping this in mind, I wanted to start a general uplift thread where we can share videos or photos that have made us smile or laugh to remind us that there are better days ahead. 

    Some other recent YouTube videos that have helped me:
    - Grover reads The Monster at the End of This Book (Even if you don't have kids, it is a great watch to bring a smile to your face): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42iXxfGiwDg
    - John Krasinski (known for playing Jim in the American version of The Office) created a Youtube channel to highlight some good news from around the world

    I look forward to your posts!
