The Positive Things Happening Post-Turkey and Syria Earthquake


Joseph Berman

It is very important for people to research a feel good topic in the news because there is too much sadness in the news. So, I decided to write about the earthquake that happened on Feb 6th 2023 in both Turkey and Syria. Now I know what you’re thinking. How can this horrible event make me feel good or have any good news about it? Well there are multiple pieces of media that can make you feel good about this event. 

For one this disaster is making people come together to help other people in need. Throughout social media you have probably seen videos of people helping people out of rubble. These videos are what makes me and other people feel good about this whole situation which has caused people to even fly over there themselves just to rescue people buried civilians which is also another way to make you feel good. As scientists claim, helping people will actually make you feel better about yourself. “Evidence shows that helping others can also benefit our own mental health and wellbeing. For example, it can reduce stress as well as improve mood, self-esteem and happiness.” (Kindness matters guide | Mental Health Foundation

Although this disaster will always be remembered horribly, there will always be times where people can come together and do something for the greater good and that is what I consider good news.
