If it Bleeds

When my son worked for NBC television he told me”if it bleeds it leads.”So much of our information via media is based on negative events both worldwide and local.It often colors our thinking and beliefs about people and the world.It is easy to come to the conclusion that the world is “going to hell in a handbag.”

However, all of this data ignores the countless positive acts that happen each day .Families lovingly care for children,teachers help grow the minds of students,nurses assist the weak and the dying.Non profits feed the hungry and find shelters for the homeless.Children sell lemonade with the goal of finding a cure for cancer.Despite all of the pain and suffering in life there are millions that dedicate themselves to the positive side .They live by the words of people like Mother Theresa who said”if you can’t feed one hundred feed one.”
