There Is Some Good News In This World Too!

In the midst of all the sad and distasteful news that is surrounding us it is important to shed light on some of the good things that have happened over the past few months.
Some may remember the infamous ‘ice bucket’ challenge that went viral all over social media and how it was heavily criticized for having no ‘real’ impact. Well, this year, this claim was challenged, as the money that was raised during this campaign was able to allow scientists to uncover the gene that causes the disease.
Another positive thing that has happened in the world, is on the environmental front – China has decided to end its ivory trade. Additionally, as of this year, there is a new campaign to abolish over 40% of the plastic in our oceans. The papers today seem to be full of depressing news, however one should always keep an eye open for all the good things that are happening around us too.
