Give Me Some Good News Dammit!
When it comes time for me to write a post here at CTBoom I like to peruse the local news stories to see what is happening. Occasionally a national news story or a funny meme will catch my eye but most of the time I focus on CT. After the long weekend I am in the mood for a nice, feel-good story. Something that can make us all smile. No such luck…
Here is a quick sampling of the headlines today:
-A 50-year-old chokes a 5-year-old (Via WFSB)
-Man dies after stand-off (Via WTNH)
-Enfield kids return to armed guards (Via The Courant)
-Anthrax scare in Darien (Via CTPost)
-Syria (Via everyone on Facebook)
Puts a smile on your face doesn’t it?
Maybe it is the weather combined with all this awful news but I could really use a pick-me-up. So I ask you, dear read, drop a comment below about something positive. Could be your kid’s first day of school. Perhaps you got laid this weekend. It doesn’t matter as long as it isn’t depressing. Share your happiness with everyone! Maybe you can be the ray of sunshine we all need.
