We have several regular threads in several of the forums. The Dungeon has the Monthly Complaints thread where we discuss & gripe about everything from a driver who cut us off to tough family situations. The economic & political forums, as well as the flu forum have ongoing specific subject threads.
I'm going to claim Executive Privilege & start one here in Op/Ed called as above: 'A Little Good News Today'.
Two reasons - some really NICE & sweet stories don't easily fit into hard news or anywhere else. Why not in an ongoing thread? Secondly, some days the news just seems horrendous no matter where you look. I thought it would be nice to have ONE consistant thread where we could bathe in kindness, thoughtfulness & flat out peoples' consideration for other people. There are days where we could all use a dose of that.
So that's the only 'rule' for this thread. Post nice stuff - good deeds, happy news - big or small.
I'll start with a genuinely sweet story I found that makes a lie of the common perception tat all young teens are raving, throughtless snots.
