Through all the chaos and confusion of the protests, there have also been some bright spots.  Here are some of the uplifting stories we’ve seen over the last few days . . .

1.  Police in cities all across the country have been taking a knee to show support for peaceful protesters.  Drone footage of 50 cops in North Carolina doing it has been trending online.
