If it bleeds it leads

My son who was then a broadcaster once told me that the news focuses on tragedies and negative stories.In his words”if it bleeds,it leads.”There are so many opposite stories everyday that go uncovered about ordinary people who strive to make the world a little more kind. There is the young girl that has a lemonade stand to raise funds for a classmate suffering from cancer,The older man who everyday greets soldiers returning from war zones at the airport.The neighbor who trims,without being asked, the shrubs of elderly neighbors.Millions of unnoticed moments when caring occurs will never be announced on the networks.These may be unreported and certainly not earth shattering, but they are the ones that are like ripples in a lake.They spawn hope,love and make us realize that each of us can make a difference.
