Big Hugs And Girl Power: Our Favorite Comments From The Past Month

Every month, we'll be highlighting things we heard from our most important critic, you, the reader.

One of our favorite things to watch happen in the comments sections on our FacebookTwitter and Tumblr is the emergence of the little pockets of empathy that are created when a user is touched enough by a story to share their own. This month, two of our highest performing stories discussed a parent's grief after the loss of their child. We watched as individuals going through similar experiences as those in our posts responded openly about their own struggles of moving on after a child's life has ended. And then continued watching as those comments were met with an outpouring of love and empathy — much of which coming from strangers. 

See below for our favorite comments, and the stories they reference, from the last month.
