The 30 greatest photobombs of 2013

– Like many at UUMC, I’m a news/article junky. I love reading blogs and online journals and newspapers. I love being stretched by voices that are different than my own and empowered by voices or stories that are too often hard to find in mainstream media. Each week, I’m compiling a few of the most intriguing, inspiring, or challenging articles I’ve read in the last seven days, in hopes others can glean from their voices as well. I may or may not agree with everything in each article, but at minimum, I’ve found of a nugget of truth worth sharing. Feel free to add to the list in the comments! – Mary Ann, Justice Associate
