          This story made my morning–a man’s work supporting literacy in kids that is both a Beacon of Hope and embodies the power of one to make a difference. For sixteen years a man and his pigs have been traveling across the United States to encourage children to read. It will make your day, too. Thank you, Atlas Obscura!
