And Now for the Good News: A Mega-Dose of Positive News to Inform, Inspire, and Fill You with Optimism
We've supersized our homes, cars, meals--and our news. With continuous TV, Internet, newspaper, and radio coverage--all that news time to fill--we 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 Newsis 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 news--especially with your kids; they need some positive news, too.
