Breaking the self-nihilistic spiral of me, me, me, people are able to accomplish wonders. This month’s two examples of positive news as part of the We Are The World Blogfest prove that.
Building a literal village
Maybe it’s due to what I read (I tend to focus on good news rather than mainstream horror) but I see a trend emerging where homeless people are not looked down on any more but are supported with food, haircuts, clean clothes they can use for job interviews.
This Scottish cafe has been doing that and they have now taken a step further, building houses, or as they say, a community for those in need. I can only imagine that those given this opportunity will try to give the same back once they’re in the position to do so.
Stepping in when you see someone in need
However you don’t need a lot of resources, time, money, planning and commitment to make a difference. The other story I wanted to share is simple in it’s essence: it’s communication. But for some people, this is not that easy.
Wish you all another month filled with good deeds!
