As a staunch supporter of feminism the Olympics story touches me most. Women in general display an inherent empathy for one another that is not so common in men.

I think that the Olympic show of help was one that really stood out, and being televised also helped spread the word. I just wonder why it is that we are so obsessed with bad news when items such as the tunnel under the road for the penguins, the Polish athlete who auctioned his medal and the phone call offering the plod squad an Xmas meal etc., don't get a mention? The days when news finished on an uplifting story seem to have been tossed aside... that in itself, is depressing.

So, with that in mind. Let's finish on a high note... one with a waggly tail. --> http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/brave-dog-stays-with-injured-pal-on-railway-tracks-for-two-days-as-trains-thunder-overhead/ar-BBxC9mW?li=BBoPOOl&ocid=mailsignout
