On Our Sleeves : Happy Face

What does a happy face mean to you?

One of the most recognizable signs of pure joy, a happy face often represents feelings of happiness, satisfaction, well wishes and humor. It's contagious, often eliciting happiness in others–the ultimate sign of optimism or well-being.

Nonetheless, the happy face can also feel unrealistic or “fake” as it is used so often in social media. Do people really feel that happy? We can hope for all of our children to be happy as they navigate the complexities of growing up in an increasingly fast paced world.
