Good to go

Posted on: January 1, 2015

Turn on your TV, read a newspaper, and fire up your online feeds. What do you get by way of news? Typically misery, calamity, and the world going to hell.

It is no secret that news media (old and new) know that bad news sells. But this misshapes the perception of our world.

There is still good in this world.

You do not have to look to a leader, policymaker, or politician to do good. Quite the opposite actually. Everyday people do good deeds every day.

How many of us take the time to thank these people? Probably not a lot, but here is an exception.

We have much to be thankful for, no matter what the mainstream media tells us. But do not take it from me. Consider what one of the most famous astronauts in recent history, Chris Hadfield, had to say about the global efforts and changes for good.

I do not make resolutions because they are often too ideal and vague. But here is a promise I make to myself: To do what good I can in the arena of education and to thank my peers for their good work.

I am good to go.
