Ode to Joy: This String Instrument Flash Mob Will Melt Your Heart

It’s called Ode to JOY for a reason. I can’t stop grinning. 

(And I really needed that this morning. I dropped my phone in water and now it’s broken and sitting in a bowl of rice and I was feeling stupid and silly and sorry for myself and then I remembered that there are much worse things than losing a phone in this world. And much better things than having one.)
