WASHINGTON — It’s time for us to get uplifted! That time of the morning where we shake off any negative vibes with the stories that will keep the spirit up over the course of your day.

Remember now, when you log into your next Zoom, check your filters, or you might just find yourself going viral.  

If you have something you'd like to share, email us at GetUplifted@wusa9.com or contact Allison Seymour on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
