An epiphany

IStock_000005020723XSmall[1]-boyinredshirt-smlstThis blog is the result of me having an epiphany.

Over the years, I’ve exhorted my audiences to make sure they share positive news about the future with their children to demonstrate that good things are being done all over the world by good people. People have asked me where to find this good news and I’ve given them a vague answer like, “It is scattered all over the media.” One day I realized that I read all over the media and I know the good news. Why the heck wasn’t I summarizing it for others to read?

So, that’s what this blog is about: the good things I run into as I read and research more than 45 publications a month, plus the stuff I run into on the Internet. My goal is to put five to ten stories each week about something that I consider good news. You can follow up if you want more information by visiting often:

If you have some good news that I am missing, you send me a note. I’ll be happy to take a look at it. If I agree, I’ll post it.

So, for those of you who are tired of running into bad news on the front pages and lead articles, here is an antidote:

Some good news about the future!

This is such a great blog, I stumbled across it on accident, but I am glad I did. I love reading about sustainability, since that is the nature of my business Lindenbrooke.com Our number one goal is to educate as many consumers about sustainability in the office with green inkjet and laser toner cartridges, such as the soy toner cartridges made by soyprint.

I have you bookmarked and will be back.

Great blog ! I appreciate reading about uplifting and encouraging ideas.
