It's Time for Some Good News

I'm tired of bad news. There is just so much of it everywhere you look. You turn on your TV or get online and you're immediately flooded with all the horrible and dark things that mankind is capable of. Well today I choose to focus only on the great and noble acts that people do every day. Without being asked, or expecting anything in return. Random acts of kindness. Today I'm passing on the good news. Here are some articles that will restore your faith in human kind. When you are finished reading these, go out into the world and do something nice for someone. Just because you can. Pass along the good news. : )

With the Boston Marathon bombing reminding us of what a dark place this world can be sometimes it is nice to also see the goodness in people rising up as well. Here is a link to an article about the out pouring of kindness that always seems to come in the face of tragic events.

Here is a news story about a thief who returned the items they stole many years later. People really can change and become better, if only we will let them forget the past. So touching.

This is the story of a beautiful anonymous message that was left on a restroom wall. It touches me that this person could not read all those anonymous messages of pain that had been written on the bathroom wall without wanting to reach out and heal those who had left them. If only more of us had the courage to reach out.

Waiter refuses to serve customers after they complain about having to eat near a child with disabilities. Having the courage to stand up for what you know is right, is not a small thing. This waiter could have been fired for doing this. Maybe this story will help others to stand up next time they are faced with a difficult situation.
