The "news" is about war. If people are exposed only to television, radio, and newspapers, they are missing important lifelines. The real news is about how many positive initiatives are being developed.
For the coming days of Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year, I think 10 minutes a day with these sites will be more inspirational, helpful and restorative than watching or reading the usual news.
