Rekindling an appreciation for the good things in life
"making a huge difference"
At first, I will admit, that your news articles weren't that interesting to me! Often, I've found myself skimming the articles, thinking "so what?!" But I believe this reaction is just from the desensitization that occurs with sensational news in the mainstream media. So I decided to continue receiving your RSS feed and guess what? Your daily stories have allowed me to rekindle a certain appreciate for the good things in life. The truth is, I was passing up a lot of good things in my life without realizing it. They just don't reach out and bite you on the butt like bad events do. But they are everywhere, just waiting to be noticed!
Please keep doing what you're doing. It is making a huge difference in the way I see my world.

Gave up reading news every morning... but now has another option
Today I typed in good news out of frustration and found your website. Thank you for giving me this option. I have been reading it all day and forwarded the link to my friends. You are doing a much needed and important thing. I appreciate you.

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.
Antidote to the fear-driven horrors of terrorism coverage
Have enjoyed looking through some of your stories, particularly the "Good Things the Muslims Gave Us" which was a great antidote to the transcripts of the cockpit voice recorders from one of the planes that went down on 9/11 which I was reading last night.
Keep up the great work.

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 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.
