The Good News Thread

Starting this thread as a way to post good news articles. Something to remind folks of the good in the world or just a place to spread it.

Kicking it off is:

I think he makes some great observations although life is easier with wealth, you can’t take it with you , as they say . Whilst we may bicker about politics and life , I guess one realizes that, after family and friends , the good things you did to help others make you feel warm inside . Nobody will remember some old fart racing around in circles , but I hope I can try a bit harder to contribute somehow . Double whammy …the helper and the helped feel good :slightly_smiling_face:. Trouble is we tend to meander on with good intentions until it’s too late :pensive:. I’m working on a cunning plan :wink:. Oops those medications appear to be kicking in again :cold_sweat:

I was hoping for something a bit more exciting :grinning: Maybe taking Pets to Hospitals to visit the very sick, or getting some western food to people in hospital . Those without family here …actually having seen what Grandma brings , probably those with families also :ponder:

Not technically news, but a great story of extreme perseverance. Showed it to my daughter who is having a big cello competition tomorrow only after a year and a half or so of practice. She really liked it.
