It really depends on what circles you travel in.
My guess is you are surrounded by goodness that simply goes unnoticed.
It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. (or attention)
We have news available to us 24/7 and it's big business.
It comes down to ratings and dollars.
"If it bleeds, it leads" - a very old saying from those in the news business.
No one cares to know that your neighbor picks up your mail and newspapers as well as cares for your pets while you are away on vacation or a stranger points out you dropped your wallet, or there is a retired couple who spends time visiting people in nursing homes they don't know just so that someone is looking in on them....etc
Millions of good deeds are being performed every hour! It just goes unnoticed.
It's very easy for us to get caught up watching the news and reading so called "top stories" in newspapers and online that we start to believe the whole world has gone to hell in a hen basket! That's not reality!
Right now at this very moment there are thousands if not millions of people laying out in the sun on numerous tropical islands sipping on Mango daiquiris and listening to music from their iPods while staring at turquoise waters...etc
Life is a personal journey!
There will always be haves and have nots. good and evil, rich and poor, wars and hunger...etc
The beautiful and positive things in life don't get the same kind of airplay as the negative things.
It's up to each of us to look for those good things on our own.
The world is much more than what we see on the nightly news.
