I was reading through all the negativity and stupidity this morning
while drinking my coffee and something said, ‘how about some good
news?’, so I typed in GOOD NEWS and found your site… Ahhh! -John Longo
Oh my, you’ve made my day! I can’t tell you completely how happy you’ve made me. -Dany
Thank you for writing your newsletter, Some Good News! I enjoyed reading the positive stories ... I am heartened by the goodness and generosity that I see in people ... Keep up your good work.
I think there needs to be a change of consciousness with the news ... to try to seek a higher ground. Why can't it be more representative of the way the world really is? I think we don't know what the bombardment of crime and violence does to our minds, I think we're in denial about it.
When I read the newspaper, I look for the good news because every thought we think changes our biochemistry. Your hormones are all affected by your thoughts. Pay attention to things that bring you joy.
I think the press, including TV journalism, has an ethical responsibility, a sacred responsibility, a service mission ... to make good news just as entertaining (as we've made sexy the violence).

If news is not really news unless it is bad news, it may be difficult to claim we are an informed nation.
- Norman Cousins, editor of Saturday Review
I just came upon your site through the Yahoo News page and I nearly fell off my chair.
I can’t believe you exist!! -Anthony Tudini
What a breath of fresh air. -Teresa Yordy
A media diet of hostility, blame, confrontation and violence corrodes your civic outlook.
Are we supposed to be boosters or promoters? What are we supposed to be? Not destroyers of community; not extinguishers of hope. We need to think about our impact. We tend to say we don't have one; we just pass along the news. Readers say otherwise.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about these things.
I have found ... that people are thirsting for images of goodness in order to maintain their hope in a difficult world. Sometimes, the measure of our work as journalists is not the professional recognition of colleagues, but rather the mark we make in the hearts of readers who see our work.

I am a professor at Case Western reserve University and absolutely love
your work--it is very significant. I would like to share your link at
our website on Appreciative Inquiry. Thank you for your work!
Thank you for making this site. Daily, I was affected by Panic Attacks which were triggered from the news and all it's negative content. I considered starting a good news site and I was so happy to find one already here.
GNN has really changed the way I see the world. A few months ago I realized that I was getting really bogged down by all the terror and destruction that hit me first thing in the morning, and throughout my day. Now, with the Good News Network set as my homepage, I see first the good that goes on in the world and my attitude and state of mind are much better.

I suffer from depression and paranoia. I feel like I can never truly
be happy as I always get this sense of encroaching doom and most of my
fears are heightened by media sensationalism. Your website is just what
I need to focus. - Mike
FINALLY! - Equila Phelps
I enjoyed reading the positive stories… I am heartened by the goodness and generosity that I see in people… Keep up your good work.
I was absoutely blown away by the fact that there was someone out
there in the world who had not only thought of creating a Good News
Network, but who had done it for ten years. -Viktoria Roxie
What a relief to hear some of the positive things happening in the world. -Courtney Baird
