Friday Round-up | Long Island Photographer

What a week. It has been a roller coaster of emotions, up and down, around and around. I am calmer today than I was yesterday, and I am starting to formulate some plans about what I can do in my own community to keep progress moving forward, not backward. 

In the meantime, here are a few links to start out your Friday. A few non-election items to give you a few minutes of escape, and a few inspirational posts with actions that you can start to do in your own life to make change and help others.
