    I'd love to hear some good news too. The only thing on the news is bad. Muder, Rape, and bombs. It is quite disheartening. There has to be some good out there in the world someplace.

    I hear you bro! I'm trying to raise 4 kids and hope that the future is gonna be bright for them but sometimes I just cringe after watching the news!!! I try to be positive and upbeat but sometimes it's just tough!

    I agree. I usually have to bite my tounge on subjects like this, because I have "opinions" which at times upset others, so I usually keep them to myself.

    I can sum it up in one word.....GREED......and in my 50 (well 49) years in this world......I can honestly say I remember when it didn't used to be this way.

    I dont watch TV, read paper etc. like I use too. From neighbors, friends to everyday people I come across, many or stressed, not happy etc. I'm having more hard times than I ever had and its not because I'm a bad person or dont try. Maybe I notice more since I am a parent and grand parent. I sure dont want to leave a mess.
    It is very hard times for most people but not unexpected. IMO. Use your own judgment on the answer.

    I agree that there a lot of bad news everywhere today, but think back to the bomb scare of the 50/60's. Our parents were having the same thoughts as we do today. Today we just get more world info. faster so we hear more news at one time and a lot of it is BAD. Make your time with your family the best you can, their what counts.

    I firmly believe that we all can make our own good news especially with all the bad news in the world, just check out my story on the fathers day I recently had with my 14 yr old son.

    I think allot of it is BAD NEWS SELLS. Everybody ignores the good things cause all they want to know is what's wrong. Like Big George said "SLUDGE". That's why I just don't watch the news anymore. Not that I don't want to be informed I just don't want to be depressed. If something really important happens I always hear about it somehow. Not saying that we shouldn't stay up on current events just take it with some salt. JMO.

    FRYGUY has it about right good news doesn't fit the big money agenda. I have an old cowboy friend and we discuss world politics on a regular bases, I would become disheartened about it not doing any god to fight the bad news when the end is already written and he said "boy you don't want to be holding the devils hand when Jesus comes back" . I say lets you and I kep up the good fight.
