So Jay Smooth, who does this great hiphop radio show as well as awesome vlogs, did a thing called Good People Day a couple of years ago. Actually, his mate Gary Vaynerchuck did it, but it was Jay’s video I was rewatching yesterday.

And I saw the date! And I love the Good People Day idea - and even more so when it’s Jay’s Good In People Day variation - so I wanted to try it.

Good People are all around me; most notable right now are my fellow [livejournal.com profile] diacon_alley organisers, everyone prompting and replying and reading over at the Ron/Draco drabble-a-thon, and my friends here in Norwich.

But the Good in People Day concept as Jay applied it was about not only celebrating obviously good people - like the Japanese workers in the Fukushima nuclear plant, who are risking and likely sacrificing their lives to save others - but recognising the goodness in everyone, and recognising how connected we all are. He celebrated the goodness in George W Bush.

You know what? Let’s try this as a meme. Give me someone - anyone, fictional or otherwise - and I will tell you the good I see in that person.

PS: No giving me Gaddafi. I don’t think it would be classy to be talking about his goodness while he murders his people.

ETA: Voldemort has been given to me twice already, so I will say it here: the good in him is that he likes his snake and feeds her delicious humans!
