Ah. GOOD NEWS. It’s out there. Harder to find than the heartbreaking stories that seem to blanket our media streams? Yes. But don’t give up, peeps. There is a lot of GOOD NEWS in this world. Even if we do have to dig a little deeper to find it.
Every once in a while, I’ll highlight an article I find that focuses on GOOD NEWS. This column is called Good News Tuesday.
Please spread the word.
Today’s entry comes to us from a groovy little site called Karma Tube, a phenomenal website dedicated to bringing inspirational stories to light, using the power of video and the internet to multiply acts of kindness, beauty, and generosity. And it’s sure to give you some warm and fuzzy goosebumps. VERY bookmark-able. www.karmatube.com. Get on that.
Ready for today’s story? Presented courtesy of Karma Tube:
How many of us have seen children tie towels around their shoulders and race around as superheroes? In just four months, Robyn Rosenberger has given 500 children that feeling of invincibility by making custom capes for each special child. She posts stories of these Tiny Superheroes to give each child a voice and a face for their condition. These capes are more than just a piece of fabric. They tell the children and families fighting illness and disability that we know how extraordinary they are.

This is the part where you tell me – what lessons have YOU learned from a child?
