Good News: TikTok Kindness, Passionate Teachers, and CPR Skills

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  A 16-year-old girl in St. Petersburg, Florida named Torrie Norwood got certified in CPR last month . . . then saved her friend’s life after a car crash the very next day.

2.  TikTok is adding new “kindness” features to stop bullying, including one that asks you to reconsider before posting a comment that might be “inappropriate or unkind.”

3.  A new survey of senior citizens found that learning to use computers and things like Zoom has been a huge silver lining of the pandemic.  Over half said they’re now talking to loved ones as much or MORE than they were a year ago.

4.  A new study at Princeton found all the social distancing may have saved us from another disease.  “Acute flaccid myelitis” is a serious neurological condition similar to polio, and mostly affects kids.  They were expecting to see hundreds of cases across the U.S. last year, but only recorded 31.

5.  And a new poll found that despite the past year, most teachers are just as passionate about their job.  91% said they’re “passionate” or “very passionate” about teaching, compared to 93% before COVID hit.
