Believe in the Good

A protest can be can be done effectively by supporting what is done with integrity and fairness. For example, a while back a Sunday morning TV show did a feature story on Chobani yoghurt company. Their hiring practices and their obvious awareness of fair treatment of employees was so impressive I vowed to only buy their brand of yoghurt. It is my way of making sure they prosper and continue doing business.

We do not have to push against what is wrong if we actively stand up for what is right. We can do both, of course, but one way seems better. Here is a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson on the subject:

Do not waste yourself in rejection
Do not bark against the bad
But chant the beauty of the good

It reminds me of the advice from the ancients, "Look for the Good and Praise it." There is far more Good being done in the world than the news would indicate. It is up to us to find it and identify it and support it. Have faith in our fellow humans, believe in us and support our efforts to make the world a better place.
