A Little Good News Today. . .

January 16, 2009 - Joselyn King
As the oppressive pressures of a failing economy and freezing temperatures weigh down upon us -- and it seems an ill-fated bird has flown into our psyche and disabled our engines -- it is so heartening to see life pulled from the depths of icy waters.

Have you noticed the looks on people's faces lately? They don't have the same expression of everyday concerns. There is something else there right now. Overall, people just aren't happy.

Maybe they're even downright scared right now.They're just waiting for winter to end.

The last time people were this despondent was in September 2001 just after the attacks on America. Perhaps another event happening in New York City -- the miracle on the Hudson River -- can just as easily emotionally energize a nation.

In the interim, we have to take heart in the little things that perhaps can bring us joy. Even if its just that our favorite sports team has won.

What do you look to for inspiration?
