Every single day, wonderfully exciting things happen in our country, but you would never know it from the news coverage. The philosophy that seems to drive headlines is: “If it bleeds, it leads.”
We are blasted out of our chairs daily by television commentators announcing “breaking news,” which is almost always negative, and sometimes rehashed old news.
You won’t find that in America: Where Great Things Happen. Instead, you will find uplifting and inspirational tales that will bring a smile to your face and make you feel proud to be an American.
You will find coverage of incredibly talented young people and exciting senior citizens who do things you would never expect; corporations and community organizations that feel a sense of responsibility to the public; good Samaritans and organ donors who risk their lives to save people they don’t even know; Americans who overcame disabilities or wretched childhoods to achieve unimaginable success; and inspirational, humorous and encouraging stories that will just make you feel good to be an American.
