Benster has been watching the 10:00 pm news pretty consistently with us for the last couple of weeks. Many nights he has commented that the stories are violent and the news is negative.
That is not what I saw on the news this morning.
I saw huge a huge crowd of people milling around in the streets armed with cameras and flags, not guns.
I saw the police using words and hand signals to control the crowd, not riot gear or tear gas.
I saw the crowd being respectful of a famous building, not attempting to break into or camp out overnight in the famous building.
I heard the crowd applaud and yell "kiss, kiss", not shouting angry words.
Sometimes, when most of what we see around us is negative, that is when we really need to hear the story of a smart and beautiful woman falling in love, getting married in a tiara and a gorgeous wedding gown made specially for her, riding off in a carriage to live in a castle with her handsome prince.
