Some rarely watch the news. They might hear something that goes viral, but that’s about it. The news is ways so depressing, anyway. It just shows how mean or destitute people can be. Why watch something that we can’t do anything about? These are all real concerns. Although too much news can be stressful, taking a few minutes a day to learn about another’s situation can be enlightening. We may not be able to change what we see in the news, especially if it seems worlds away, but it could help us care more about those in our own orbit. Random acts of kindness don’t have to be so random. They could be inspired from a little story we saw in the news.
