An overwhelming majority of news stories are negative one way or another. It has been noted many times how the Current Events section has become a celebrity obituary section as well. I thought we could have a thread to post positive, uplifting stories to counter some of that. I was touched by this article for example.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/family-dog-finds-missing-cat-135212702.html

Comment of this story or post another positive, uplifting news article.

Well that is a pretty uplifting story, and attention-grabbing enough; that cat must be one hell of a survivor, not to mention a dog most loyal to a family.
I guess the problem with bad news is that it's what sells and/or grabs the most attention, & people do like acknowledging/paying tributes to celebrities they knew and those in turtle fandom see this as a good venue to do so, and probably a lot of celebrity stories that aren't about a passing or a centennial birthday are either gossip, cliched, or probably belong in the TV/Movie section here, and of the course the main TMNT forums for TMNT-celebrity news. But that's just my thoughts, I could be wrong.

Good idea and I agree that we need more stories like this not only here but on the news in general these days.

I thought this was a good time to revive the thread.

I saw this on my Yahoo! feed. A Mali immigrant saves a 4 year old dangling from a banister in Paris, France. President Marcone offered him full citizenship and a job. The child's father was charged with child endangerment and neglect.

A two year old went missing for two days only to be lead home by her grandmother's dog. Aside from a tick bite or two and dehydrated she was fine.

More now today than when Moby Dick was written. And an interesting side note similar to that... (https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/there-are-whales-alive-today-who-were-born-before-moby-dick-was-written-660944/)
