Society & Culture  (tags: americans, child, children, education, family, humans, government, politics, society, interesting )

I apologize if some of you don't care for Daily Kos, but this story came through today in their summary and I read it, I read it all. This is what we are losing through our short sighted approach to public education. See first comment, please.
I Saw This Today at the Hunger Site
World  (tags: troops, military, americans, culture, government, violence, politics, death, war, ethics )

It tells the story of one veteran's struggle to find himself and the devastating effect that had on his wife and children. It is worth watching - but you may need a Kleenex or two. I did not. Why in the first comment.

This is just a really neat little feel good story, with a happy ending. Some fool was obviously trying to get rid of these two, but luckily there were a couple of heroes in the vicinity. :^)
Hillary Clinton Was Not the Only One.
Offbeat  (tags: government, elections, bushadministration, bush, dishonesty, news, politics, congress )

- 260 days ago -
While Hillary Clinton's use of personal email during her time as Secretary of State deserves scrutiny, it now is clear that the media need turn their eye on Republicans who did exactly the same thing - including some of her loudest critics.
Akiane Kramarik - An Old Soul Is Here   video
Society & Culture  (tags: arts, children, ethics, goodnews, interesting, unusual, world, women, ethics )

This came to me with the title "A Master Soul is Born", but as I watched and listened, I realized she is far more than that. See first comment. :^)
This Is Funny and Creative and Far Too True.   video

This young man has created quite a wonderful parody with more truth than one can bear almost. 42 million views so maybe you've already seen it. If not, it is quite entertaining in a quite satiric way.
Lady GaGa's Video in Celebration of Women Winning the Right to Vote
Society & Culture  (tags: americans, politics, freedoms, women, goodnews, rights )

- 466 days ago -
This has been out there for a couple years at least, but it was featured today at the Hunger Site and I found it compelling enough to share.
The Dumbing Down of America
Society & Culture  (tags: activists, americans, government, freedoms, environment, education, world, politics, religion )

Well, the title really says it all. But the article proves it.
This Really Isn't a Story, But It Is.
Society & Culture  (tags: family, GoodNews, humans, interesting, society, women, world, religion, children )

This is a link to a video. It so touched me that I want to share it. I'll have a bit more to say in the comment.
The Laughing Bride

I have been watching this, at least once a day, for more than a week now. It is helplessly contagious. Oh, to start a new life with someone so joyous. Almost enough, well not quite, but it is a good beginning. And very funny.
