In the wake of the horrific events in Paris, it is hard for anyone to find a speck of good news when faced with an overwhelming example of the darkest portion of human nature. There are those times in the currents of history when one must accept that we are capable of wonderful achievement, great empathy, and unconscionable brutality.

Yet if history is to be our great teacher, it will also demonstrate that from the ashes of genuine malevolence, we will prevail. With complete unanimity of purpose, and total solidarity, overcome their destruction. The best of humanity will rise and always triumph, it knows no alternative.

TGNR endeavors to report humanities steps forward, but we are far from oblivious to those actions and events that remind us all how far we have yet to go. Friday November 13th, 2015 is such an example that will resonate indefinitely.

It is our uncompromising mission to find and report the best of this existence; with all the fortitude of upholding our belief that humanities Golden Age is still just over the horizon. It will be achieved equally from benevolence as well as our undeniable drive to learn from the failures of the flesh. May no redoubt stand in our path.

Vive la France. Vive la LIBERTÉ!
