We Are The World Blogfest
The last Friday of the March marks the start of the “We Are the World Blogfest”, a fledgling operation that we all hope will become a blogging extravaganza of peace and positivity. WATWB seeks to promote positive news instead of the constant stream of negatives that we’ve become so accustomed to, and to showcase stories of love and light that demonstrate the compassion and resilience of the human spirit. Hearing these stories helps to increase our hope in our ever darkening world, bring a smile to our faces, boost our sagging immune systems, and remind us what the heck we are here for — to love each other and make each other laugh. Lighting the candle always dispels the darkness.
My contribution to the first #WATWB is this story of an irate customer at the Starbucks drive through who realized that her state of mind was not helping the state of the world. She went back the next day to make things right with the barista, proving that Mom was right and it’s never too late to say sorry. Oh, and that politeness is the bedrock of a civilized nation. #bepolite

And because I adore good news of all kinds, particularly when it involves gifts from the Earth, I’m leaving you with this one about a man who has spent a lifetime collecting some of the world’s most unusual and impressive rocks. One crystal is as big as a car. As all parents do, he believes his children should stay together, so he’s on a quest to put the entire collection into a museum. They aren’t just rocks, you know, but “the foundation of a dream he wants so share with the world.”
