There are still good eggs in the world

Central Queensland News - - YOUR SAY - KRIS­TEN BOOTH kris­

THIS week, I spoke to a man who had been in a re­ally ter­ri­ble sit­u­a­tion. He had been stuck in the creek and, without the help of a few heroic civil­ians, he may not be here to­day. These peo­ple were not su­per­heroes, they weren’t mil­lion­aires turned Iron Man, or any part of the Avengers or any other comic movie. These peo­ple were just ev­ery­day mem­bers of the Emer­ald com­mu­nity who were go­ing about their af­ter­noon ac­tiv­i­ties. They saw some­one in need and they did every­thing they could to re­turn him to safety. A lot of the time we only hear about the bad things that are hap­pen­ing within com­mu­ni­ties. Crime. Theft. At­tacks. It’s time to make the good news stand out. We as­sume that to­day’s world is full of ‘bad’ and neg­a­tive peo­ple, be­cause that is what makes the TV. That is what is be­ing broad­cast within the coun­try and all over the world. The world isn’t all neg­a­tive. We need to tell peo­ple about the good sto­ries that are still tak­ing place ev­ery day. To­day I want to re­as­sure you that there are still peo­ple who just want to do what is right. These peo­ple go about their daily busi­ness, not look­ing to be a hero, but will­ing to help out those in need. Tell us about a lo­cal hero in your com­mu­nity at
