It's a Beautiful Day for Good News, Vol. 5

A new installment of my semi-regular serial attempt to counteract the message from common media that The World is a Sad, Bad, Dangerous Place. Good stuff happens all the time.

Australia's hostage crisis in December brought out the best in some people.

A tattoo artist doesn't charge his weekly customer.

A man's inspiring obituary reveals that he is, in fact, Spiderman.

In a touching and supporting move, parents correct a birth announcement, nineteen years later.

A mom writes an open letter to the Trader Joe's employee who probably doesn't know the impact her actions had.

Left at the altar, a woman celebrates herself, with the help of her family and friends, in the best photo shoot ever.

In a Philadelphia restaurant, customers pay-it-forward with pizza.

Now, here's my favorite laughing baby video ever, and a photo of a baby hedgehog.


  1. Thanks, Tara. Did you read or hear about this incident that occurred in Australia last summer: ?

  2. What an amazing thing. I'm all misty now, watching all of those people come to the aid of this stranger. Thank you, Jean!
