Although it feels like it was January last month, we’re now six months into the year and here in the States in the middle of an excruciatingly hot summer (here’s what we recently learned about that). There’s a lot happening in the world: enough to drive your anxiety levels up and worry for our children’s future.

However this month’s photo of the month isn’t one of those. In fact, it’ll likely bring your blood pressure down a bit; sharing a little bit of optimism coming out of Cuba. Sent to us by Ernesto Millan and David Lopez, it’s from a series they are working on about Cuba’s vaccination efforts called, “On the Frontlines.”

Please check out Ernesto and David‘s work on their Instagram feeds. And, special thanks to Rita McNiff for her support with this month’s photo.
