Good is happening all around us

At first glance, you might think the world is "going to hell in a hand basket." That's because national media considers good news anecdotal. A cheery snippet concludes some newscasts, as if nothing else good happened that day. But it did! Good is happening all around us, all the time. Consider this. At the drive-up window of a Chik fil A recently, a customer named John paid for his meal with ten $100 bills. He asked that the money be used to buy meals for people in the cars behind him. "Mondays are hard," he said, "and I just want to make a few folks happier." So for the next hour, every driver at the window as told his meal had been pre-paid by a man known only as John. All were surprised. Some were incredulous. And one lady, who had a terrible day until then, broke down and cried.

Meanwhile, some senior girls at a high school in Texas were hatching a plot to heal the heart of a classmate who was the victim of bullying. You'll enjoy watching the news report linked here.


And on another football field not far away, the home team was losing the Friday night game but finally won by just one point. Open this link to see and hear a post-game interview with one of the players. His attitude will remind you what boys can learn from sports and good coaches.
