It is hard for my kid to see the positives when he reads the regular paper and with the stuff that is happening. When he read The Optimist Citizen paper cover to cover, he rose saying: There is a lot of good in the world. I can’t tell you how much that means.

I had stopped reading newspapers 10 years back because they only spoke about everything that was not right, but I am so happy to see this concept. This endeavor gives me a lot of hope. I think this needs to impact globally, it is critical to our sustenance.

Just when I was done with mainstream newspapers, The Optimist Citizen became an oasis – letting me look at the brighter side of humanity. What stands out is that it can be handed over to anyone without the fear of them being scarred by the sensational news.
