The Mandatory 2019 Hall of Fame: Our 20 Most Inspired Stories of the Year

There’s so much wrong with the modern-day world, which is why it’s important to focus on what’s right. Every year, we here at Mandatory look back at the past 12 months of content and identify those stories that stirred us, uplifted us, and motivated us not just to do better, but to be better. We know you love us for our hilarious tweets of the week, GIF roundups, and funny photos, but in addition to entertaining you, we also want to inform and inspire you. These Hall of Fame stories capture the best of humanity, our writers’ talents, and the major stories we tackled in 2019.
