“No matter how dark it gets, there’s always good in the world.” ~Some Good News
Another week in the pandemic, another episode of John Krasinski’s Some Good News, and another puddle of cathartic tears I find myself in. I, like millions of folks out there, are now looking forward to Sunday nights when new episodes of Some Good News drop.
This week, the fan-created opening sequence was a lego sketch from White House Productions that was absolutely fantastic. Krasinski then got right to it with a wonderful montage of the incredible and brave work that our grocery workers, delivery persons and utility workers do. A special shoutout to Mailman Kyle! You rock! Another shoutout to that wonderful utility worker who sang Happy Birthday to a 94 year old grandmother who had to spend her birthday alone. Well done.
Then John Krasinski blew our minds. Actually, he didn’t, the astronauts on International Space Station did! Some Good News has reached space! Captain Christopher Cassidy, Dr. Jessica Meir and Dr. Andrew Morgan gave a tour of the space station and also gave the most beautiful quote of the episode while their camera was showing the planet Earth, “An Earth in crisis is still an Earth worth returning to.” Immediate. Tears.
Krasinski then gave an overview of the prom he threw on April 17th which included Rainn Wilson, Chance the Rapper and performances from The Jonas Brothers, and Finneas and Billie Eilish. It was beautiful with teenagers in their prom dresses and suits dancing around. Even Krasinski himself wore pants!
There was one motivational part of the episode where Krasinski is talking about being worried before the whole Some Good News prom event. Then, I’m not sure if he intended it or not, he gave the best advice ever. He said he had never felt so scared in his entire life and was completely unprepared before the event, “So I what did I do? I hit start.” Sage advice for any situation.
Watch the video. Cry cathartic tears. And, thank you John Krasinski for sharing Some Good News every week.
