At about 7p last night, I noticed a hashtag on twitter that was trending #1 called MPR Raccoon. I went through the tweets, some live streaming of this little girl climbing up a high rise building in Minnesota. Cute right.
I woke up this morning with no inspiration or sense of purpose. And then #mprracoon changed all of that. For all of us. He may not be the hero we deserve, but he’s certainly the one we need right now. pic.twitter.com/fN7wmIEGxh

There were plenty of scary moments watching this little girl climb.

Lots of us were rooting for the raccoon to make it to the top of the building where wildlife officials set up cages and put dog food in them hoping the little girl would make it to the top so they could save her. People working in the building put their photos on twitter.
