If you're new here, this is the reason for this section of my blog: Everything sucks. At least, that's what the news would have you believe. That's how they make their ratings/money. Americans, in particular, looooove drama. Twenty-four-hour news, I suspect, now takes the place of soap operas, where we used to get our drama fixes. (That's a super-scientific claim, BTdubs. I have all kinds of memories and superficial observations to support it.)
I need to remind myself that, really, there's far more good in the world than is popular to report. And maybe you need that too. And that's why "It's a Beautiful Day for Good News."
I'm going to try to make a little change, due to recent feedback I've gotten regarding this blog. I'm told that posting many links at once - no matter how great they are - can be a little daunting to get through. So I'm now going to experiment with limited my shared stories per post, but then hopefully post more often.
We'll see. If you have feedback - on anything of this - I'm happy to hear it.
