Ending the week on a positive note…

 When I was an undergrad in college, my nightly routine was pretty simple. Part of that routine would involve watching the evening news. Back then (late 90s, early 2000s to date myself!), there were limited news choices and the broadcast news at 6p was the standard option. So, for 30 minutes, I would watch the news to catchup on the day’s events. The format was basically the same, top stories and a feel-good story at the end to put a smile on everyone’s face. I wanted to use this section to provide the feel-good stories for the week. Enjoy!
