Social media and news in recent times has been filled with hate and negativity. Just as you cannot fight darkness, only light lamps, Hate and Negativity cannot be fought. You need to bring Love and Positivity forward instead.

I bring to you the We Are the World Blogfest. Thank you to this month’s co-hosts Shilpa GargPeter NenaEric LahtiRoshan Radhakrishnan and Inderpreet Kaur Uppal. Please visit their blogs for more positive stories.

We Are the World Blogfest” seeks to promote positive news. There are many an oasis of love and light out there, stories that show compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Sharing these stories increases our awareness of hope in our increasingly dark world.

On Feb 19, 2018, Facebook reposted a link to a story I’d posted a year ago, titled “This Is A MUST Read: Take A Gander At This Amazing, But Little Known, 9-11 Story.”

 I got chicken skin (as they call “goose bumps” here in Hawai’i) all over again, reading about the goodness and generosity of the Canadian people during the devastating crisis of 911. Even though this online article was published in 2015, I chose to share it with you today, in hopes that you, like me, will be lifted up by this amazing story and reminded of how much good there is in the world.

As is stated in the article linked below, “In spite of all the rotten things we see going on in today’s world this story confirms that there are still a lot of good people in the world and when things get bad, they will come forward. Let’s not forget THIS fact.”
