What do you do with all the bad news? All the sadness, thrown up all over whatever media you choose to view it on. Television, internet headlines, blogs, Facebook. Horror waiting around every bloody corner.

Children committing suicide – left and right, it seems. War on foreign land, bombs too close to home, innocence in the crossfire. Rehteah, Gosnell, Matthew, finish line devastation. Horrific story after horrific story. Depression. Anger. Desperation. Sad, sad, sad truths of inhumanity, cruelty, greed.

And that was just this past week.

What do you do with all the bad news?

You do something good.
