There has just been too much bad news lately. I'm tired of seeing so much hate. I am very tired of seeing innocent people dying. I am saddened by the recent celebrity deaths. There seems to be nothing but bad news. But, it doesn't have to be that way!
First a couple of things: there ARE good things happening in this world, we just aren't hearing enough about them. For some reason, the mainstream media tends to pay more attention to the negative stories than the positive ones. We need to speak up and let them know we want ALL the news, especially those good stories. Secondly, when we see bad things happening, let's all work a little harder to turn things around and get a more positive outcome.
Now I am not so naïve as to think that everything can be turned around overnight, but if we don't try, we might never know how much good we can do. Of course we cannot put an end to the deaths of famous people. Death is part of life. We can work toward a world without suicide though. We can have better resources available so nobody every has to think that is the only alternative.
There might not ever be a day when every single story in the newspaper is upbeat and positive, but I sure as heck want to work toward that day. Don't you?
