Restorative Narratives

The Poynter Institute is a non profit organization that tells events that happen in a different way than normal news does. When something bad happens the media coverage is crazy. Many people get the story and what happens and then moves on to the next story, often forgetting that people actually have to live with what happened to them. The Poynter Institute focuses on the “what comes next” after the story’s break. They stay in contact with the people that are going through something and see them overcome their obstacles. I think this is a good idea that more people need to do. Although we need to know what bad is going on in the world we also need to see the good that goes on too. They also seem very passionate about their work which makes it even more great to see.
