Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief. Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it. — Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Hey and PEERS friends,

Doom and gloom. Us vs. them. War. Human tragedy. Grief and cynicism.

What energy are we feeding into the collective consciousness today?

The noise of the media and the uncertainty of our future can be overwhelming to grapple with. The problems we face as a society are real and important to attend to. Yet as media activists, we're constantly looking at what's being reported in the news... and we believe that the negative news overload is never the full story.

Since 2003, we've gathered some of the most inspiring stories and solutions to remind society of life's innate goodness and creative potential. After all, we humans have got these incredible brains designed to rewire and change themselves with conscious thought—both finding ways to effectively adapt to our current challenges and open up to what's possible.

As the artist Jonathan Larson once said, “the opposite of war isn’t peace—it’s creation.” In the last few months, we've established 18 inspiring news categories in our efforts to revitalize and expand our Inspiration Center. This is just the beginning, and we can't wait to show you our new Inspiration Center in the coming weeks.

Explore our comprehensive categories of inspiring news article summaries:

The Power of Art
Healing Social Division and Polarization
