Not everything in our country is going wrong

It seems we rarely read about the positive and only hear about the awful things in our country ad nauseam, so I wanted to call to everyone’s attention two good things I read recently.

On Nov. 26, there was not one report of assault or homicide in the boroughs of New York City. No one could remember that ever happening before.

The headline of the other day said that health costs have not risen in the last three years. This is after they have soared for decades.

Some things must be going right. Happy new year.
