The last day of our trip to the east coast, we were strolling around Annapolis – the capital city of Maryland. At the Café Normandy on Main Street, I picked up a local newspaper – Bay Weekly. The following lines caught my attention:
“It’s a dream where people enjoy a high quality of life in a sustainable way that they’ll be able to hand down for generations to come.
It’s a dream of people who want more than dismal, doom-and-gloom news and mind-numbering entertainment. In a world bombarded with the sights and sounds of everything that’s wrong in society, we are at risk of taking on the characteristics of those dark elements we see and hear.
Bay Weekly’s goal is to provide a quality alternative, to focus on the good in society and to explore ways to improve our world.”
How refreshing and enchanting to read these reflective and sensible statements in a small local newspaper! Isn’t it essential for us to “enjoy a high quality of life in a sustainable way?” When will be the time that people can read the headlines that “focus on the good in society and explore ways to improve our world?”
Is it just a dream?
