So, although this isn’t necessarily “funny” it may sound a bit “out there”.
Every night starting at 5:00pm we have 4 local news channels telling us “Here’s who’s dead.” Well, how about we get a news channel that focuses on “Here’s who did something good.” And not just pet adoptions, craft fairs etc., but rather, maybe a large donation to the homeless shelter. Someone doing their best to improve the community they live in, in a positive manner.
I don’t watch the news, specifically because it’s filled with nothing but negativity. I don’t want to hear the gruesome details of how 2 teens were killed, or how a young boy killed his mother. I want to hear who is doing something positive to make a change for the better. I want to hear POSITIVE things!! The thing is, most of us are so intrigued with the bad stuff, so we can thank our lucky stars it didn’t happen to us. The world has become taken over by this heavy, thick, cloud of negativity. I don’t like it. I don’t imagine the people living or vacationing on tropical islands are watching the evening news. They’re enjoying their paradise. So, since we can’t all be on those tropical islands, why not turn our homes and our neighborhoods into our own little piece of paradise and then do news stories about THAT? People making a positive effort, and encourage others to follow. It may take quite a while, but I could see it working. And then we can shut those horrible “Here’s who’s dead” stations down.
So, is the idea a bit out there? Probably. But is it impossible? Absolutely not. I’d much rather hear of good things than bad. Good things make us feel good, and when we feel good, we do good. If only I alone had the power to make this happen. I’d be all over it!!
Happy blogging everyone.
Until next time…
