Response to H2O Man (Original post)

6. A very good post. If I may.....

Did you ever wonder.....why.....with billions of people on the planet, we only ever hear about and spend way too much time obsessing over the bad actions of a very tiny percentage of them? What if there was a vehicle like the NEWS that only gave us good news? What if we diverted our attention, and chose to mostly focus on and celebrate the good? Would the bad fade into nonexistence?

I would like to think so.

I've just been realizing lately that even the news we consider to be objective and factual is mostly negative, and with the advent of the 24 hour news cycle and the internet, we really do obsess over every little detail which keeps us in a place of anxiousness and yes, even fear. I'm not saying we need to ignore it, but once we know, move on and live our lives the best way we can, personally connecting with others in a positive way.

Carter's quote and your post resonated with me today.
