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.

Colin Powell: "I enjoyed reading the positive stories... Keep up
your good work"

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.
A media diet of hostility, blame, confrontation and violence corrodes your civic outlook.
Since Iraq war began, depression set in;
Good news lifted it, made enjoyment possible again
Then I found your site. It lifted my spirits and helped get me out of the funk I was in. Now I'm going to school and enjoying the things I like to do.
And whenever I feel depressed, I visit your site and see what new good news has happened. Thank you.

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.
Nearly fell off my chair
Thank you so much for this website. I just came upon it through Yahoo's newspaper page and I nearly fell off my chair. I cannot thank you enough for putting this together.
