I've had this idea for years about starting a website and eventually a television network with a name like TGN - Today's Good News or GNN - Good News Network. My thinking afterall, is that I am so tired of hearing nothing but sad, bad and depressing news being reported day-after-day. There have to be more people in the world who are hungry for the positive in life to be reported, right?
Well, that idea never took flight as all I did was think and think and think about it...Great reminder there to act on our thoughts. However, when I recently starting searching the web, I came across the the Good News Network (great name) website. It turns out that they have been reporting on good news from all around the world for 15 years now - well before my "original" idea. As the website's founder Geri says, "I began this effort in 1997 with a passion to serve humanity in doses of positive news. Now my goal is to make this a business. I want to be the first person to really prove that good news sells." And she is.
It is a fantastic website started by one woman with a vision. For a great source on real news, made by real people, doing good things in this life, please take the time to visit http://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/ and let your family and friends know about it.
Thank you Geri for starting this initiative and brightening lives around the world everyday!
