  1. Reading the comments posted on CBS reinforced my choice to subscribe to GNN! A really “Good News” story with a very realistic ending. So many lost sight of the good news, because they are so addicted to whatever is negative. If there is anything sad about that story, that’s it!

  2. Sorry, M.

    Keep your chin up!
