Let’s Celebrate ‘Nice’
Yes, the news can be a source of anxiety. But amid all the negative headlines there are amazing acts of kindness happening in the good old USA. We know this because Reader’s Digest, our sister brand, received hundreds of entries in its first annual “Nicest Place in America” program last year. And RD is taking nominations again for 2018. If you live in a city where people are demonstrating compassion in ways worth recognizing, tell us about it.
To spark your thinking, I asked our volunteer Field Editors if they had any nice places to nominate. Here are a few:
“My hometown, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, is a beautiful place to live. The center of the city is composed of restored historic buildings dating back to the 18th century. Plus, it has such a friendly population.”
“Colchester, Vermont, located along Lake Champlain, has gorgeous parks, bike paths and beaches, and our schools are awesome. It’s a wonderful community and a VERY nice place!”
“I nominated my town of Rochester, Minnesota, last year!”
