It’s really easy to read bad news online.  If I judged the world by the news, I’d think that everyone was depressed, angry, criminal, animal and child abusing.  There’s simply a lot of bad news in the world.

I meet a lot of people in my job, and while many of them are angry and depressed, most of them don’t want to be that way.  I decided that I wanted to take time on Fridays to promote positive news stories, that showcase the way people really are (or want to be.)  I believe in treating people as you want them to act, so I try to focus more on positive news than negative.  Plus, it’s all about putting positive energy into the world.

In the Philippines, a young boy saves stray animals.

The Beagle Freedom Project saved 9 dogs from product testing.  (Yes, product testing on animals still exists; no idea why.)

A Starbucks barista is an artist in disguise, and gifts lovely drawings to nice customers.

Have a great Friday, and remember: “Be the change you want to see in the world.”  (Gandhi)
