A local pastor wrote in 'Troubled Times' that those who write regularly should speak to the good in our times and not the bad. I will wager that the good pastor doesn't have a sermon without mentioning, let alone write a letter, the bad. Good and bad, they coexist.
So why do we concentrate so much on the "bad", the troubles. Truthfully the answer is very simple.
It is a problem that should and rightfully needs to be addressed.
The conflict over 'bad' comes from not everyone seeing it as bad or if they do see it as bad they not agree as to what the solution is.
Is there conflict over good and can you really make good better? Or do you make yourself better at good?
Here is a good question for you:
What do you notice about a stranger, the "good" or the "bad"?
