Joel Barker’s GOOD NEWS Blog
This blog is the result of Joel Barker having an epiphany.
”Over the years, I’ve exhorted my audiences to make sure they share positive news about the future with their children to demonstrate that good things are being done all over the world by good people. People have asked me where to find this good news and I’ve given them a vague answer like, “It is scattered all over the media.” One day I realized that I read all over the media and I know the good news. Why the heck wasn’t I summarizing it for others to read?” Now he writes about “good news” for us all.
