The Good News Is … You Are Alive!
In this age of troubling news, Thich Nhat Hahn turns our attention to the good news of our lives. The good news, he says, is that we are alive and can focus on and appreciate the linden tree, blooming sweetly after a long winter. We can be grateful for those good, decent people around us who work hard each day at their jobs, care for their families, plant a flower, and donate time, money and goods to those in need. He invites us to ignore the cacophony of the world’s negative news and focus on the beauty and possibilities of our lives.
