Sorry I’m so late today. I was late to begin with, then I clicked to caption something and my whole post disappeared! I fiddled with the history, then decided to start rebuilding.
The first item came to me this morning in my Good Newsletter. I want to acknowledge that it’s normal to feel frustrated, sad, angry, or scared with all that’s going on in the world. We can’t deny the bad news, but the lopsided perspective of bad news dominance does not have to be normal. Good news is happening, too.
Feel free to share examples of good news in the comments!
We Can Change Course
Homicide Rates Are Falling Since 1990
This article from the Good News Network reports and overall drop in homicide rates in places such as Asia, Europe and even some US cities.
Styrofoam Ban Update
In an earlier post, I reported that the US state of Maine will be banning styrofoam this month. That was incorrect. The Maine ban goes into effect one year from now. Also, Costa Rica has decided to ban Styrofoam in 2021. The product is not impossible to recycle, but it’s complicated and rarely done. It takes a very long time to decompose and when it does, it just turns into little pieces of plastic. Who needs that? We don’t. Good job, Costa Rica!
Food Drop in Australia
