I was reading the newspaper one morning in the Summer of 2005. All I saw were headlines for war, murder, rape, and other acts of violence and despair. It was depressing.
It’s my firm belief that there is something good that is newsworthy happening in the world every day. It’s just that the mainstream news media doesn’t write about it. What’s exciting about a neighbor helping a neighbor, a firefighter rescuing a child, or a soldier helping to set up a school? Whose going to buy a newspaper to read happy news?
I challenged myself to find one positive news story every day, then write about it. That challenge has turned into this blog.
