ESPN, Football players and Bullying...it's not what you think!

In a world dominated by a twenty-four hour news cycle and any information you might want at your fingertips through the internet, it seems like bad news is always in our faces. After awhile, I wonder does it change the way we see the world.  Are we more trepidations, fearful or maybe disappointed.

In reality, ordinary people do truly amazing and positive things….and not just in times of crisis.  Recently, I stumbled across a story of a group of high school football players who came at bullying from a totally different angle, and a changed a disabled girl’s life along the way. For my blog this week, I wanted to highlight the article and the idea that promoting positive stories...I believe, would make a difference in not just how we feel, but how we see the world around us.
The article is short but well worth the read and most of all, when the new reports the next batch of murders and drug dealers, you’ll know there is also still good in our world!
