Your Good News Network has changed my life! -Camille in Seattle
I've felt suffocated by today's news that rains down a storm of death, war and terrorism. I decided to search the web for positive news. Thank you for lifting my spirits, after only 10 minutes of reading I felt better about the world in which we live. -Paul Lastovica
The Good News Network is an extremely important initiative. I recommend that each person makes it a habit to visit the website at least once a day. Positive information benefits us emotionally, physically, and mentally. It can contribute in a meaningful way to a happier and healthier life.- Tal Ben-Shahar, Harvard University psychology professor
|3||My daily habit a year ago was to read the news with my morning coffee. I felt the entire world was falling apart and getting worse day by day. Then I read some research on the effects of bad news, and made a conscious choice to read uplifting stories... Now I’m excited about all the wonderful things around the world, instead of feeling helpless. When I read the stories on GNN I feel empowered, included, and encouraged to get involved. - Kerrie S., OK||2008-02-04|
Your site is great for me. When I read it I can see how my prayers for worldwide peace and tolerance are being answered.

I am very excited about your website. I definitely want to be part of the healing energy of your Good News Network. - Ann
I get my news from the internet, including Google News, Huffington Post & the NY Times. But my first and last visit is always your site. Thanks for being here.- Jim Fenno
With all the negativity in sports these days (i.e. Michael Vick, steroids, exorbitant contracts, etc.) I'm glad to see GNN come out with a sports section to report all of the good things that are happening in the world of sports. Great for kids and adults to view the good side of sport celebrities. I love GNN. It starts my day off in a great frame of mind.
I've begun using your Good News stories as centerpieces to my Sunday sermons at church. A Christian message is one of "good news' and our congregants thrive hearing these news items from the real world. It takes our Christian message to a new height.

I am just getting into the swing of things after some health concerns. Reading your site daily in the past few months was important for me and a great resource. I am back in fine form, and your site really helps me stay positive and focused on my business. It's exactly the type of effective positive strategy I teach in my seminars.

Thanks for the good "medicine"! I love the Good News Network: It is helping me become "me".
I just needed some good news for a change. Thank you. You've taken a bit of the edge off a blue day.

I was just at one of the big news websites and thought "these people make it seem like the end of the world is coming." Then I found you. - John
The platform for my work is Albert Einstein's 'Knowing' that the only way to change anything is to change the thinking that created it. He lived by this knowledge. The Good News Network is helping people everywhere do exactly that.

I am totally sick of hearing about murders, drugs, and all the rubbish the commercial networks bombard us with. I am not sticking my head in the sand. It's just that I think, enough is enough. I get depressed as it is, without hearing about all the negative stuff in the world. Thanks for making my day.

|13||After being in several very depressing conversations with seemingly EVERYONE about the high price of gas, the state of the economy and upcoming presidential election, I don't think I've even smiled in a few days - until I found your site... You've gently reminded me that there is a lot in the world to smile about. Perspective is everything, and despite what appears in mainstream news, good does happen - a lot more than I was lead to believe. - Stacey Long, Hayward, CA||2008-05-01|
Your Top 10 good newsletter today was so good. It lifted my spirits more than any other issue. A couple items even choked me up. People need to know the good stuff that is happening, to inspire them to greater heights. We need to know that our efforts are paying off, that we can build a paradise -- and we’re doing it. Thank you for singing this from the hilltops... a most valuable, important service.
-Tony Milch, Burbank, CA
Visiting GNN is actually at the top of my self care list. Working in the mental health field means, among other things, passing along helpful tools like your site. And I have told so many people about it.
- Sharon Reid
I want to tell you that your Good News Network has helped me through bad times in my life when I struggled through anxiety and depression and sometimes doubts of faith. I check your website everyday and it gives me hope, comfort, and reassurance more than words can say.
I am amazed at the change in my mood and the way I look at everything now. I am reading your site every day and l love it. Thank you very much for your beautiful work. It is something very much needed.

|18||Every day I get to work in the morning, get my coffee, jump online and read the news. Every day I go home sad and depressed... Then I found your site and after reading the first story I immediately felt my spirits lift and I never went home sad again. Reading ordinary news we get a sense that that's all there is, but your site reminds us the world is not as bad as the news would lead us to believe. Thank you for everything.||2008-08-04|

As a chaplain at a life care retirement community, I lead a discussion group on current news with seniors each week. They are overloaded with the bad news, and even though we don't want to have our heads in the sand, we need to hear some good news. So thanks a million!
