  13. It really is nice to be reminded of the inspiring things going on in this troubled world. Gandhi has always been one of my superheroes. And I so admire DiCaprio for not for just being a good-looking movie star but becoming a person of depth that makes a difference. My husband is from India, and there are so many vulnerable communities that need addressing. Kudos to Meerah Shanoy for her work

  20. We definitely need to hear more good news but unfortunately it's the bad news that makes the headlines. How about for every bad news story the media should find two good stories to share. There wouldn't be enough paper to print the stories on, or time on the news shows to get it all in.
