10. In the news: "If it bleeds, it leads."

 

Sadly, in our culture, niceness and goodness just doesn't sell.

I wish it did, I wish our cable channels and bookstores and ad spaces were filled with content about positive acts, positive people, role models, opportunities to make a difference for coming generations.

Instead, we see shows about making moonshine, killing gators, film after film about violence and, often, sexism.

Those things sell. So sad.
