It's there if you look...

Things seem bleak in the world of politics these days.

Whether you are disturbed or excited about the incoming administration, there is a lot of uncertainty and anger floating around out there.

Even many of those who voted for the in coming president aren't that keen on him they just disliked the alternative more.

So between contentious confirmations and an unwavering distrust continuing between the new administration and the Intelligence agencys and the whole Russia situation, unreleased taxes, the beginnings of censorship of the media and all those conflicts of interest raising questions just to name a few.
We went in search of goodness...

And I am pleased to report that it wasn't that hard to find!

In this time of what seems like a daily barrage of political and social madness we found
three, count them three little sprouts of love and hope and decency that slipped through the cracks of the hardness of political concrete.

First, earlier this week we heard about 89 year old  Charles Brotman  who has been the announcer of the inaugural parade for the last 60 years. He has announced every single inaugural parade since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1957.
With the recent passing of his wife,
Mr. Brotman was getting through his loss by throwing himself into the upcoming preparation for   this years inaugural parade when he received an e-mail from the Trump campaign ...firing him!

Yep! Donald just unpacked his favorite TV reality show phrase and threw it right in Mr. Brotman's face.

Well, we have great news!
Mr. Brotman was just hired by NBC4 TV in Washington DC to be their announcer!
You're loss Mr. Trump.   
( faith and hope )

Next up,
It was kind of leaked that there was going to be a surprise party of some sort for Joe Biden.
Well surprise is putting it mildly... 
President Obama honored his vice president and good friend with the Presidential Medal Of Freedom ( the nations highest civilian honor)......with distinction! Making him one of only a handful of those to receive this honor.
We love Joe too and if anybody deserves a metal for all he's done throughout his years in congress and all he has given and given up, it's Joe.
( love and friendship )

And last, who says differing sides can't come together.
Did you know that when the Obama's moved into the White House the Bush sisters  wrote letters to Sasha and Malia welcoming them and giving them advice on the next four to eight years?
And, they wrote them again to help them with the adjustment of going from living in the White House to going back into the public domain.
( kindness and understanding )

So have kind, accepting and understanding.
These attributes are precious and much needed these days...

Have a wonderful Sunday!
