"This curated collection of powerful stories features first person accounts and photographs that perfectly capture each moment: A husband learning he's about to be a dad. A new mom embracing her body. A cashier inadvertently teaching a young girl a lesson about patience. A bagel from a stranger that saved a homeless man's life. From long overdue adoptions to military heroes returning home; from a fireman's touching 9/11 tribute to what an old dinner plate found at a bake sale can teach us all about life--these are the moments that matter. They are genuine. Authentic. Raw. And they are perfect in their imperfection--just like all of us. You will no doubt experience goosebumps and tears, but this mosaic of life's moments will leave you with something even more profound: a reminder that, in the end, love always wins."--

The story about the sunflowers was moving. The stories began to get repetitive, until the comment from the husband-and-wife police officers that "All lives matter!" was included for some reason. I was taken aback. It was then that even I, a white person, realized that this was a book by white people for white people. So I did a quick flip-through review - out of 200-ish stories, there are 3 (!) from persons of color. There are 3 more where white people help out POCs, so I didn't even count those. Rave on if you will about "why does race matter" and "can't you leave race out of it" - this is a book review and I am telling you exactly what to expect from this book.
