Need some good news? I know I do! It's been nearly two months since the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, and there's good news to report about the victims. Plenty of good news, in fact -- from survivors given the huge honor of throwing out the first pitch at Major League Baseball games to one injured high schooler being named her school's prom queen.
These highs come after one of the lowest of lows: having their lives ripped apart by terrorists on a day that should have been a celebration. Marathon Monday is an actual holiday in Boston, a day when the city takes a break to celebrate what it means to be a Bostonian. So much was taken from these people on that day.
But they are Americans. They aren't going to allow the terrorists to win.
And their triumphs in recent days are a symbol of the American spirit. Here's a look at some of the stories that have really made us grin.
Which one hits you?
