Since my area is currently under a hurricane warning, I’ve decided to post GNT early in case we lose electricity overnight. Notice I use the word electricity. If we lose electricity, we will still have power, just no lights, TV, internet, or AC, maybe for a while since my neighborhood seems to be low priority on the reconnect list. Maybe I’ll finally get back to playing my guitar. Or maybe Isaias will calm down and we will keep electricity. That would be good news.
Anyway, here’s some good news that’s already happened:
Recent Drop in Premature Births
Since Lockdown, many countries have noticed a significant decrease in premature births. This has been particularly dramatic in Ireland and Denmark where doctors independently noticed the change and started crunching the numbers. Here are some interesting details from The New York Times.
Regaining Native Land
I’ve found a new source for good news: “The Good Stuff” from CNN. Here’s one of their stories about the Esselen Tribe of northern California who, after 250 years, have finally regained their ancestral land.
Through Sickness and Health
Between the two of them, Janice and Robert Beecham have recovered from strokes, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, and COVID-19. They were recently able to celebrate their 46th wedding anniversary. Here’s their inspiring story from The Good News Network.
Keepsake Teddy Bear Recovered
Mara Soriano was in the process of moving when someone stole her very special teddy bear containing a recording of her late mother’s voice. After reaching out to her community in British Columbia, a good Samaritan found “Mama Bear,” and returned her to Mara.
Got good news?
