Despite What the Media Tells You.. Most People are Good People

After hearing about what happened in Boston and seeing many responses such as “What’s wrong with people!?” or “What’s wrong with this world?” or “What’s this world coming to?”

I couldn’t help but post:

Remember, most people in the world are good people. Don’t let a few bad ones ruin your views on humanity.

It is so easy to buy into the belief that there are MANY bad people in the world because of the portrayal of that view from the media. Bad news is the best news in the media’s eyes. They don’t focus on people out there who are doing good and doing right, instead they emphasis and blow up the bad.

Yes, I did see a good post or two as well, such as this one:

Reports of Marathon Runners that crossed finish line and continued to run to Mass General Hospital to give blood to victims #PrayforBoston, via NBC Sports Network.Goodimate


If you can’t read this it says: When I was a boy and would see scary things on the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” – Fred Rogers

I loved seeing both of those posts.

It’s so easy to buy into what the media is feeding and take that as the truth and what accurately represents this country and the world, but don’t.

Most people really are good people.

And what’s even more humbling, just look at how united we feel as human beings, as Americans, as people, during times like these. Let’s always look after our brothers and sisters of humanity with the same love and affection.
