Good News for the New Year

Looking for a New Year’s resolution that’s easy to keep? How about injecting more good news into the day? Since 1997 the indefatigable Geri Weis-Corbley has compiled and published the Good News Network web site. As the title suggests, Good News Network (GNN) is a compilation of positive, inspiring, and noteworthy news from around the world. Geri digs beyond the headlines to find good news from familiar sources including Reuters, AP Wire, USA Today, NPR, the New York Times, and more. GNN is divided into seven sections: Latest News, Family Life, Business, Civics, Recreation, Health, and “Inspired!” I’ve posted an RSS feed link to GNN here on Daily Mitzvah (see right-hand column), to remind myself there’s more to the day’s news than the grim and the gory.

Today’s mitzvah:
Resolve to visit the Good News Network to bring positive energy into your day, and the lives of those around us.
