JOY, HOPE, AND LOVE Looking for Positive Influences in the World

As spring turns to summer, people are still feeling the impacts of COVID-19. At the time of writing, states across the U.S. are still feeling the heavy influence of quarantine and stay- at-home orders. With news changing daily, it’s hard to predict what the rest of the year will look like. However, no matter what may happen, we encourage you to keep finding things that lighten your heart, make you smile, and bring you joy. In the past few months, people all across the world have taken it upon themselves to bring happiness into the world in any way they can. Through sites such as YouTube and Facebook and news networks, individuals have reported acts of random kindness across the country and throughout the world. One such individual is actor John Krasinski, known for his role as Jim in “The Office.” On March 29, Krasinski uploaded the first episode of his new YouTube show, “Some Good News,” where he reports on local heroes, good deeds, and events that grip the world in hope and love. After his first episode was released, people jumped to follow in his footsteps, creating their own “Some Good News” signs and reporting on similar good news. In the fourth episode, the International Space Station

even took up the call and reported all the good news in the “space world.”

Other actors have joined Krasinski in giving back. Patrick Stewart has posted videos of himself on Twitter reading William Shakespeare’s sonnets with the hashtag #ASonnetADay. Author Neil Gaiman tweeted in late March that he was giving permission for anyone to read his books online. In the podcasting industry, many podcasters are coming up with great new ideas for their listeners. Many new shows, such as “Home Cooking,” “The Kids Are All … Home,” and “Introverts Guide to the Good Life,” give homebound people something to listen to and new activities to try out without leaving their house. Clint McElroy from “The Adventure Zone” has uploaded several YouTube videos of him reading

books, including “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” for his viewers.

Though the future is unknown, there is still joy in the world. Look for the people eager to spread that happiness.
