I have a 7 year old son and we don't watch TV, listen to the news, or read newspapers because so much of it is negative and full of pain and hate -- things his little body does not need.  I am SO thrilled to be able to show him stories on your Website and talk to him about the positive, Good work that is occurring here on Earth.  You have given me a safe place where I can allow my son to browse and follow the stories that interest him.  Thank you! - Esther Colwell
