Challenging day in the classroom today, and from there I went to Mrs. K’s house, where she had the news on. I got to see it twice, in a fashion, because her closed-captioning is about 5 seconds behind the broadcast. Anyway, it was a depressing news day, and by the time “Wheel of Fortune” came on, I was feeling generally unimpressed with human beings, and particularly Americans.

You’ve got one comment to give me some good news, something that will restore my faith in the human race. Ready . . . begin.

Good luck with restoring hope in Humans. I’m pretty much done with my fellow man myself. The sheer amount of (insert derogatory term here) is mind boggling. Try ignoring the news for a few days. Or you could try watching this funny Goat video I found. Here is the link.
That was hilarious – thank you for sharing it! I’m posting it to two of my cousins’ Facebook walls right now.
My work is done here… 😀

I thought the video would be embedded. I promise it’s worth it to click through and then watch the video to the left — as long as you have tissues within an arm’s reach. And it’s good news.
That was wonderful – very uplifting and touching. We need more stories like that.
I gave up on watching the news some time ago. If you are looking for a balance or anything uplifting, it will not be shown in the “film at 11.” That is not the intention of the broadcast media.
Look to your friends, look inside yourself, for the calm and the strength and the support to get through the challenging times.
I’m pulling for you – for us all.
I don’t generally watch the news or even read the newspaper. But when I’m at a client’s, I don’t have much say in the matter. That said, I try to stay focused on the positive stories as much as I can.
