A virus inspires long-overdue Good News File

I don't know how long Drudge has linked to this page at MSN stuffed with good-news reports but this is the first time I've seen it. As Americans and peoples in other countries start to take their lives in stride in response to the virus, what started as small streams of kindness is turning into a roaring flood. Even if you don't have time to read through all the reports, look at the headlines to be inspired about how Americans are responding to help those who are most vulnerable to threats from the virus.  

Americans readers can start at the site with the AFP report published today, With coronavirus, acts of kindness abound in US.  And it's not only in the United States. See this Al Jazeera report, also published today, In the UK, an outbreak of kindness and charity as virus spreads

Now what we need are national Good News cable channels; instead of lecturing and fighting over political solutions, show what so many individuals are doing every day to help people in their communities, the challenges they've faced and overcome. 

Often people only need an action-path -- to see how how others are helping in order to think up their own ways to help.  It doesn't have to be a big program involving hundreds of professionals, the small acts add up.
