"Be the change you want to see in the world."
20th, 1998. It was one of those gray, rainy, days. I turned on the
radio. Again, negative news. I tried to lift my spirits by exercising. The TV
was on in the work-out room. More negativity. I reached for a newspaper. Still
more negative news. That was it! I was exasperated. I knew there had to be
That's when my husband casually
speculated, "One day we'll have to start PNN… you know, like CNN but only with positive news." Mark kissed
me good-bye, left for work, and left me thinking… If we waited until we could afford to start our own cable station,
never do it. But I had immediate access to another powerful source of media - my computer and the internet.
I sent an e-mail letter to about 30 of
my friends and e-mail acquaintances with a simple mission: I will find one good thing a day and share it with others to
spread some positive energy.
I didn't know if I could do it at first…
that is, find one positive thing a day. Nor did I know how my friends would react to some goofy good news item in their
e-mailbox each and every morning. But their responses brought reality to Light…
People WANT and NEED to hear the
POSITIVE things in life. News isn't just about the stuff that goes wrong or the people who can't seem to get their lives
together. News is about every day life being noticed… and that includes the good stuff!
I'm still amazed at how much our
Positive News Network has grown. I didn't plan on making it any bigger, but the word got out. Our subscriber list is in
the triple digits now! Our tremendous growth and success can be credited to our readers. You told me you wanted more
PNN. You told your friends, family, and coworkers - and they wanted PNN. You've contributed your favorite stories,
quotes, poems, and experiences. Some of our readers have even become featured columnists! We've not only created a
wonderful Positive News Network but a network of Positive People creating miracles in their own and each other's lives!
Thank you for all of your
encouragement, inspiration and contributions. You've taught me that we all make a difference. It's up to each of us to
make that difference a positive one.
Peace, Love, Happiness & Health,
Let Your Spirit Soar!
