Big J likes to watch NBC Nightly News, so by default I watch it, too. Lots of things going on in the world that hurt when you hear them. At the end of each Friday’s newscast, Brian Williams has a segment called “Making a Difference”. Good is the focus of this segment; good people, good works, good coming from bad or sad. Most segments are about normal, everyday people who saw a need, listened to their hearts, and went to work to answer the need.
Last Friday Brian Williams was in Afghanistan and did a story on an orphange that takes care of approximately 150 children. Viewers were so touched by the story that by the time Brian did a follow-up story on Monday, 130 of the children had sponsors and a great deal of money was donated to the orphanage. I haven’t heard a new update but I am guessing that after people saw the Monday update, the remaining children now have a sponsor.
Now THAT is must-see TV!
P.S. There is a blog dedicated to the ties that Brian Williams wears. An English teacher writes the blog. If I remember correctly, she started it as a writing demonstration for her students, and she has continued it for several years. If you read it often, you will start noticing his tie each evening.
At least I do.
