A lot of people complain about how they get depressed whenever they watch or read the news; Wars, starvation, natural disasters, plane crashes… and the long list goes on in our mad world.
A new website called HappyNews.com takes another approach to news, reporting only the upbeat and happy news, leaving out the depressing bits.
Personally, I’m not too into the idea. I understand how sometimes the bad news gets too overwhelming and that it just depresses people how much bad stuff is going on in the world, but well the solution is not to turn a blind eye to it all and act like it’s not happening.
If we all did that, all these bad things would keep going on and getting worse, maybe till there comes a day there are no happy news left.
A big problem in many places of the world today is how societies ignore the problems within them and act as if they don’t exist, not facing up to them and trying to find solutions for them, sort of trying to wish those problems away, but that never works, and the problems just keep mulitplying and growing until they result in a crisis, which is harder to face and solve.
