Something to Think About

You can sometimes forget, when you read the news, that most people are actually decent and caring.

Here's something by L. Ron Hubbard from The Way to Happiness that summarizes that thought:

"The violent criminal, the propagandist, the sensation-seeking media all tend to distract one's attention from the solid, everyday fact that the society would not run at all were it not for the individuals of good will. As they guard the streeet, counsel the children, take the temperatures, put out the fires and speak good sense in quiet voices, one is apt to overlook the fact that people of good will are the ones that keep the world going and Man alive upon this Earth."
