It's important to be informed of the newsworthy events in the world but all this negativity can get overwhelming after awhile. I tend to have a pessimistic streak that I try hard to keep in check but sometimes its cynical opinion rises up and I mutter an ominous prediction or at the very least an eye-rolling "well I saw that coming."
I do count my blessings (there really is no such thing as a small blessing). Just the simplest things like being able to feed and dress yourself and having indoor plumbing are blessings very many in the world don't enjoy.
So I'm just ruminating here; if such a thing as a Good News Network existed, do you think anyone would tune in? A cure for a horrible disease is on the horizon. A species of animal has been taken off the endangered species list. Infant mortality rates have dropped. Stuff like that.
I really enjoyed my journalism classes in college. Of course I never covered any major earth-shattering news on the campus, but I was good at my story writing.
Sometimes there are the human interest stories to end the news broadcast on a lighter note, and those are always heart-warming; the anonymous stranger who hands out $100 bills to those in need, the dog rescued from a storm drain, the grandmother who donates dozens of quilts to her local homeless shelter, etc. But those are never the LEAD stories.
So, here are a few Positive News sites;
I hope these sites do the same for you.
You're welcome. :)
