Consider this view from Mass Mutual:
“2017, for a lot of reasons, was a tough year. Such as news headlines dominated by rising international tensions, natural disasters, and increased inequality. But if you take a closer look, you see 2017 was filled with stories to restore your faith in humanity. Stories like the Texans who used their fishing boats to scour flooded neighborhoods for people trapped in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. And the the motorcycle group in Indiana who escorted an 11-year-old bullying victim to his first day of middle school. Mass Mutual is giving a voice to these inspiring people who looked out for each other this year at TheUnsung.com. We believe they’re the embodiment of our Live Mutual philosophy and their stories deserve to be heard and shared widely.”
