I decided to interview my 3 year old this week to learn more about what goes on in her head. At first glance, it might seem like children only think about popsicles and postponing bedtime, but they are much more complex than that.

A common saying that newspaper publishers have said for decades and still rings true is that, “Bad news comes in our door everyday, it’s the good news that’s hard to find.” The spirit of that statement basically illustrates the fact that the cops and courts beat generates more stories each and every day, than say our health or government beats. It’s just the nature of our business.

However, the truth is volunteering is not only good for a specific cause; it’s also good for the volunteer.
