A Twitter Question

July 2, 2009 by

Today I got a twitter message asking what was the reason for The Love Project.  Because I only have 140 characters to respond my answer was short but hopefully clear.  But what I would have wanted to respond if I had more characters to spare is; take a look at the front page of any newspaper and news website and the purpose of The Love Project will start to become clearer. 

For example today’s CNN.com landing page:

Latest News

Jackson’s will answers questions, raise more

Captured U.S. soldier reportedly sold to clan

‘Major operation’ under way n Afghanistan

Report: North Korea test fires two missiles

CNNMoney: Job market takes turn for the worse

……

How are we supposed to go out into the world with such news?  I don’t know about you but after reading the Latest News, I want to hide under my bed.

Why is that the extraordinary deeds performed by regular people every day don’t make to the front pages?  Wouldn’t it be great to have positive, inspiring news mixed in with the harsh ones? What if the latest news looked like the below?

Latest News

Jackson’s will answers questions, raise more

Cleaning lady puts daughter through law school

Captured U.S. soldier reportedly sold to clan

Starving African child shares food with friends

‘Major operation’ under way in Afghanistan

Today is hug day in America, step outside and get yours

With the above at least we have a fighting chance for a good day and maybe when we say “Have a good day” to others we might just actually mean it.

That was until I read some of you blogs. So thank you for putting this site on your twitter. I feel like I’ve found a new place to help me keep the positive thoughts in my head.
