The world is going through a turbulent time right now, with COVID-19 tearing through communities and leaving devastation in its wake. But even from the isolation of their homes, children have a message of hope for us all. First inspired by little ones in Italy, families across the US are leaving images of rainbows in windows, on doors and on social media as a symbol of sunshine after the storm, often with a note reading, “let’s all be well.” Whether through window art, sidewalk chalk, face painting or colorful clothes, these kids are helping to brighten our days. Scroll through these uplifting pictures and trust that together we will get through this—and that there’s a rainbow waiting for us on the other side.
