Focus on the positive

In the recent bombing of the Boston Marathon two bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring many more.

I don’t know what this world is coming to anymore. I feel like I am not safe anywhere. Now, when you go to the movie theater, you have a chance of being shot. You go to school with a chance of yourself or one of your friends being murdered. Even when you run a marathon, you have a chance of being bombed.

But what we also have to remember is that over 7 billion people live on the Earth, and every day things happen we should celebrate. So instead of thinking of all the bad things that our society is going through, we should focus more on the little things that make us happy. What I am trying to say is that we should try and stay positive.

So maybe the Boston Marathon bombing was just a fateful reminder to never take a day for granted. Next time you are having a bad day – remember that some people don’t even have the chance to have a bad day, let alone a good one.
