We've supersized our homes, cars, mealsand our news. With continuous TV, Internet, newspaper, and radio coverageall that news time to fillwe hear the same negative stories, accompanied by the same negative images, over and over and...It's enough to leave us feeling hopeless!
The truth is, this hyper bad-news environment isn't giving us an accurate picture of our world. If we were aware of all the individuals acting with generosity and even courage to help their communities and beyond, the surprisingly positive trends regarding crime rates and international conflicts, the many businesses and organizations getting creative and making the world a better place, we'd see there's a whole lot to be optimistic about.
And Now for the Good News is an exploration of American news and media consumption and its effect on our individual and collective psyches. But more than that, it's a refreshing antidote to all the bad news, with positive news and trends and helpful resources that will leave you feeling inspired and motivated. Read it and share the good newsespecially with your kids; they need some positive news, too.
