I regret as a result of personal issues which are still ongoing I have not been on-line for a while writing or publishing for this blog. From time to time I will try to post a blog entry from either myself or guest blogger Luis Leonel but these may be sporadic at best. Apologies if I am not always able to respond to comments or comment on the blogs I follow and those who follow me.
For the first blog after such a long break I thought it might be good to include something positive. In fact I hope to include more positive posts than previously in order to create a better balance. With the emphasis on unbalanced and often biased negative aspects of the news the world can seem like a bleak place with little of any good taking place. While there is much evil in the world perpetrated towards both human and non human animals there is also much good.
So many people in their everyday lives contribute to a better world not necessarily in momentous actions but in little ways often not noticed or deliberately ignored – frankly I consider there is a deliberate emphasis on negativity. Why this is so I hope to discuss in another post.
But for now today something positive!!!!
“The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.”
Robert F Kennedy
It was in fact difficult to make a selection because contrary to what we tend to think there are many good people in the world, kind caring people. Here is a selection of positive items from the internet which I have personally found uplifting
Please check out the You tube Channel of Erin who has 17 pets Pets Palace TV
“My name is Erin, I own 9 guinea pigs, 2 bunnies 3 gerbils, a hamster, a cat and a dog. I am very passionate about animals and I try to give all my pets the best life that I can provide for them. My aim is to inspire many people to do the best that they can for their small pets.”
Erin really looks after her numerous pets very well and it is good to see animals so well cared for. Furthermore it is also good to include something positive about a young person as so often young people are maligned and stereotyped as selfish and uncaring which is most certainly not the case at all.
There are just so many videos included in Erin’s You tube channel it was hard to choose a small selection, so if you get a bit of spare time I highly recommend that you watch some of these videos: Pets Palace TV.
It is heartwarming to see animals so well cared for, especially guinea pigs and rabbits, two pets often so neglected.
Furthermore if you are going through a difficult time or when the cruelty, brutality, greed and selfishness of the world gets you down remind yourself by watching videos such as those above and below that there is goodness in the world, there are good and caring people who try to make a difference when and wherever they can.

Here is another positive story form Good News Network
50 Good Samaritans on Train Help Refugee Family Navigate New Country
“When a Canadian woman offered to help a refugee family, appearing lost and confused at a train station, little did she know she’d be just one of 50 people coming to their aid.”
Read more of this heart warming story:
It often appears that there is little sympathy for refugees and it is my opinion that the issue of immigrants and refugees was sadly the deciding factor or the only factor upon which many people here in the UK based their Brexit vote on. It is therefore such a refreshing change to read about so many people who went out of their way to help this Syrian family
I like this website from The Good deeds organisation. Simple stories of acts of random kindness by ordinary people.
In the great scheme of things maybe the people above seem to make only a small difference yet they make a meaningful difference to the lives of the people or animals whose lives are enhanced by their kindness and caring.
