Recovering from the Virus
It’s emotionally staggering to read how many people have died from COVID-19. Reading about recoveries offers hope. 292,188 people have recovered from the virus. John Hopkins University has a dashboard showing the numbers of cases, deaths, and recoveries around the world.
104-year-old William Lapschies is one person who has recovered. A World War II veteran from Oregon, William recently celebrated his birthday with a socially distanced party. Here’s William’s story.
First Koala Group Released Back in Australia
The non-profit group Science for Wildlife released 12 koalas (plus one pouch baby) back into their natural habitat in the Blue Mountains in late March. The release happened after the group studied the area and determined enough growth had taken place to support the animals. Here’s the story from Independent.

We need some good news. It’s better than the scare tactics most of our media use to drive up their viewers and clicks.

The language choices of mainstream media annoy me now that I’m more aware. They love to use dramatic or scary words in their headlines.

They also like to leave out things to give you the impression of one thing, instead of what was really said. It is comical to see how they report on the White House briefings. I watch the whole thing daily. Then all of a sudden you see articles addressing this, and they’ve taken the whole thing out of context. Oh well. That’s why I gave up reading anything produced by the news outlets. ~Dave
