One of my favorite news paper columns is the one called “Wata Ravuma,” published sometime back in the “Sunday Divaina” news paper.
I loved it for the singular reason that it was about simple yet heart-warming real-life stories of people helping each other and acting in selfless and inspiring ways.
Over the years, there were a few other columns in various news papers on similar themes. Unfortunately, this has not at all been enough. The occasional positive ripples created by these stories sadly get lost in the sea of negative stories and idle celebrity gossip that our media constantly bombards us with.
We need to see and hear more and more about the good side of our people. It will inspire others to “do good” in similar situations and will eventually contribute to the strengthening of the moral fiber of our society.
