Photos showed people engaged, doing good

During the past week of horrific news, two photos in the Star Tribune made me smile and restored my hope. One was the image of Somali-Americans at their precinct caucus raising their hands, eager to become delegates to their ward convention.

The other was a group of Metro Transit riders pushing their bus out of the slush — among them a man with his pants belted around his thighs and a woman who appeared to be wearing a skirt and tall fashion boots.

It’s reassuring to see all these fellow Minnesotans engaged in our common life. Thank you, photographers Jeff Wheeler and Brian Matthew Hart.
