‘Good Deed’ By Stranger at Gas Station Will Blow Your Mind!

good-deed

*We’ll get to the “good deed” in a minute.

But first, there is something I have been meaning to get off my chest for quite some time. I notice when this publication acknowledges positive actions and shares good news, we don’t get as many views or comments as the negative news we tend to share. And that’s just sad. It’s like negativity is the only thing that gets our attention.

I bring this up also because social media sometimes asks why media doesn’t cover positive things? Most recently this question was attached to a photo of a group of high school children praying outside in the school yard. Whoever posted the photo this time wondered why news such as that doesn’t go viral.

Positive news doesn’t sell.

Hell, I get that as Black folk, we’ve got a lot going on.  We’ve got every right to be mad as a muh-f*cker — what with being disrespected; victimized by modern day lynchings from those who were hired to protect and serve all people; and continually profiled by society as a whole — we’re not presented with much to smile about. As a result, look around, many of us seem to have forgotten how to smile.

…Unless we are motivated by some external action. Someone gives us a gift. We get good news on a personal level. We win that court case. Our life-partner finally proposes, etc.

But that’s so fleeting. Once we’ve spent the money, or been in the situation for a while, we’re right back to where we were before.

Thing is, if we continue down this road, we’re doomed — individually and collectively.
