Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak . . .
1. Live performances have been non-existent this year. So three dancers in Argentina started an online contest called the “Stay Home Dance Competition.” Now people from all over the world are posting videos where they do an interpretive dance about the pandemic, and anyone can enter. It ends this Sunday.
2. Here’s a kid who can roll with the punches. A 300-pound high school football player in Michigan found out his season was postponed. So he joined the cross-country team instead, and ran his first race last week. He finished second-to-last, but says it’s all about staying competitive, and getting tougher “mentally and physically.”
3. A new survey found 94% of Americans have been cooking as much or more than they did before the pandemic hit. We’re eating more of those meals with loved ones too. And most people say it’s made them feel closer as a family.
4. A guy in New Jersey was vice-president at an ad agency before he got laid off in June. And while he searches for a new job, he’s been mowing senior citizens’ lawns for free. He says he, quote, “just wanted to put some good out there.”
