In today’s stressed economy, I continue to look for fun and good things that are happening in our world. They happen every day but most are too wrapped up in the most current economic news and the “good” stories do not seem to have reporters racing to report them. For some reason people seem to be drawn to pain, destruction and devastation. Did you know that people who watch and/or listen to a large number of news stories a day tend to be moody and much less happy? I want to know what is going on in the world but not at the expense of my health.
Here is a funny story that actually happened. I hope it will put a smile on your face and get you to look around you and see if you can report something good or fun that has happened.
This past weekend in Washington, a Cessna crashed a few minutes after takeoff. I know, I told you I was going to tell you a “good” story. Well, the reason this is a good story is because the pilot walked away without injury! Why, you may ask? Because, the storage yard full of portable toilets absorbed the crash. It is sad the demise that came to the portable toilets; however, to be able to say proudly that you are alive today due to a large group of portables is amazing.
What have you witnessed in your world that is news worthy but has yet to be reported in the major news?
