Noor Tagouri | July 23, 2014 | Good News
Let's address the elephant in the newsroom: a Muslim woman with a headscarf. Yes, I am a news reporter. And yes, I keep this scarf on my head while reporting (though not always this particular scarf). There has yet to be a Muslim woman who wears the hijab anchoring American news in any commercial market. Needless to say I wanted (and still want) to fill the gap.

I Never Forgot My First Friend. Facebook Brought Us Back Together Years Later

Elizabeth Mahon | July 23, 2014 | Good News
So I went on Facebook to search for her. I wanted to see if she remembered me and if perhaps there was a chance of reconnecting, if only to say hello and briefly catch up. When I found her, I sent a message describing who I was and asking if she remembered me. She did.

Dr. Hyder Zahed | July 21, 2014 | Good News
It is not difficult to be grateful for all the positive and pleasant experiences and blessings in our lives. This does not mean that experiences which are difficult and negative are without their own purpose and value for us to be equally grateful.

Lessons Learned While Packing Up My Son's Bedroom, Alone

Michelle Rose Gilman | July 21, 2014 | Parents
This is not the way the story in my head went for the past 18 years. The story in my head was always that we would pack up his belongings together, laugh out loud at the tiny discoveries we would uncover as we found childhood treasures long forgotten. That was not HIS story.
