Self-Isolating Elderly Man Spreads Joy With Sweet TikTok Poem

We have been hearing a lot of negative news since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, but now an elderly man has taken a unique step of spreading joy and laughter on social media to counter it.

Shannon McCluskie

Shannon McCluskie uploaded a short video on TikTok, where he recites a poem about viral spread, he is not referring to COVID-19, but about how joy spreads from one person to the next.

“A smile can be very contagious,” he says. “You can catch it like the flu. Someone smiled at me today, and I started to smile too.”

What a positive video this is for all of us, we do not need to flood our minds and hearts with fear-inducing articles on the news, but we can choose to spread joy and smiles to everyone around just like Shannon McCluskie has done.

This is so sweet and wholesome.

Verse of the Day

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV)
