When we started compiling our favorite reader responses from our Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr pages every month, we expected to laugh. We expected to smile. But we didn't expect to find what we found this month.
Below multiple stories, in the comments section, which too frequently dissolves into name calling and dismissive phrases, we found instances of people engaging with each other in meaningful conversations. We found readers who had questions they wanted to ask and other readers willing to listen and respond. We're honored for the small role our stories played in facilitating those conversations.
See below for our favorite comments, and the stories they reference, from the last month.
