Inter-neat | Friday, January 10, 2014

Inter-neat is a new series where I share neat things I have come across on the internet lately. (Inter-neat… get it?) I hope you find something new here that makes you think, smile, laugh or cry (happy tears, of course).

How Knitting Behind Bars Transformed Maryland Convicts
A really heartwarming story about a woman who has made a difference in the lives of these prisoners; discovered via my friend, Christiana.

Burglars Who Took on FBI Abandon Shadows
This is a fascinating story about a pretty historical event that happened in the town we live in, and I had never heard of it before now; be sure to watch the video if you have time!

Lakeisha’s Journey: 100 Days
You’ve probably already seen this, but it’s worth a mention even so — I adore her determination and spirit.

An Amazing 16 Foot Shark Made Out of Snow
I just can’t stop thinking about how cold they must have been! Discovered via my business partner, Maggie.

Questlove: Trayvon Martin and I Ain’t Sh!t
Okay, I cheated: it’s actually been months since I read this. But it really stuck with me (I’ve read through it three times on different occasions), and it’s worth a read. It makes you think twice about judging a book by its cover, racism and racial profiling, and our justice system.
