Today, our daily timelines are clogged with tragedies, and there’s more reason than ever to try and find a little goodness in the world. My suggestion: Join the We are the World Blogfest.
I’m down with a bad back and writing deadlines, so I’ll let my friends do the talking.
In an open letter to humanity, my friend Mary Giese says:
We have the responsibility of creating a peaceful world rather than tearing it down.
Humanity, we have a lot of work to do to turn this around.
To turn the tide of darkness and make this world light.
So that we can smile and laugh and be happy for ourselves and our neighbors.
The violence, the hate, the bigotry, the judgment has to stop.
We must coexist with love and kindness for all of humanity and create a world that Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr., and Alfred Nobel would be proud of.
And my friend Andrea Michaels says:
It’s true that negative news, emotions tend to get more attention. We remember negative events longer and more emotionally than positive ones. According to some studies our vocabulary to describe people is 74% negative.(!) How sad is that.
A study on couples however showed that if we give in to this tendency, and use more (or about the same amount of) negative and positive expressions about each other, it leads to divorce. Words have meaning, they have weight.
