Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time

GNT Four Year Anniversary!

It’s hard to believe Good News Tuesday has been going for four years! My first GNT post was on May 30, 2017. THANK YOU to all my readers and contributors for supporting the good news, one Tuesday at a time!

Court Orders Fossil Fuel Giant to Cut Emissions

A Dutch court has ordered Shell to cut carbon emissions by 45% to comply with the Paris Agreement. “It is the first time a company has been legally obliged to align its policies with the Paris climate accords, says Friends of the Earth…” Read more about this historic decision in BBC News.

Police Officers Living in High Crime Neighborhoods Make a Difference

A program in Atlanta helps dedicated police officers buy homes in high crime neighborhoods. Even with the financial assistance and other benefits, it’s a big commitment. Officers are expected to work to help tackle issues in the community. Lt. Ralph Woolfolk, a 14-year police veteran, is one such officer. This article about Lt. Woofolk and the program includes a great video.

Working Together

This is a photo I discovered on Facebook shared by T. B. Shamir who wrote: “This too is happening in Israel. My niece Tali working in one of Israel’s main hospital in harmony with her fellow staff – Jews and Arabs coexistence in the work force!”

Jewish and Arab Hospital Workers

The Judge Gave Him a Second Chance

Judge Bruce Morrow gave a 27-year-old Edward Martell, a high school dropout/drug dealer, a second chance sixteen years ago. Instead of jail time Martell got probation and to challenge to make something better of himself. Recently, Martell passed the Michigan state bar exam to become a lawyer and was sworn in by the same judge who gave him the second chance. I first saw this story on someone’s WATWB post (remind me who please) and then on the Good News Network. The video tells the story.

  1. JoAnna, congratulations on 4 years of spreading good news! It is one of my favorite posts every week. ❤ The story of police officers living in high crime neighborhoods was especially meaningful today. 🙂

  2. Congratulations, on four years, JoAnna. ❤ The picture from the Israeli hospital says it all and I love the story about Bruce and Martell. Thank you for sharing these special stories. Xx ❤

  3. The news about Shell is, indeed, good news!

  4. The Edward Martell post was me. I, too, look forward to your post every week. Congratulations on your good news anniversary!

  5. The story about second chances and the hospital workers are awesome!

  6. Happy Anniversary, JoAnna. At this particular time Working Together has to be my favourite – The Arab/Jewish collaboration also being a metaphor for so much else
