Where is the good news?
I went on a rant on facebook earlier. I was frustrated over the amount of people complaining about people complaining about working the holidays. When did buying stuff become more important than family?
I am just tired of all the negative being promoted over the positive. I wish we saw more of the good things going on in the world. They don't have to stop airing the bad things on the evening news, but a little more balance would be appreciated.
I like knowing what is going on. I like to know if there is a danger to me or my family but honestly, the reason I usual turn on the news is to see what the weather is going to be like for the week. Then I switch the T.V. off.
Yesterday we had a police involved shooting in my tiny little town. The first one in 10 years. It happened on a street when my brother and sister-in-law used to live. A 51 year old man kidnapped his 28 year old neighbor. He was shot when he attacked police with a knife. This isn't good news but I was interested in it because it was close to home. Do you know what good things happened in my tiny little town yesterday? I don't have a clue.
There are still good things happening. There are many things to be thankful for. We just have to remember to share the good news as well as the bad.
