Editor's Viewpoint: The joy of happiness

A theme running through today's issue of this newspaper is happiness. While the world currently has more than its fair share of gloom and doom, either from financial turmoil or violence, it is also important to highlight the joys of life.

The media is often accused of being negative and concentrating on the dark sides of humanity, so today we are redressing the balance.

It is important sometimes to ponder what it is in our lives that makes us happy and how we can spread that happiness to other people. In a world of scowls, a simple smile can brighten up someone's day. So too can an act of kindness or a compliment. And remember, spreading happiness can also make oneself happier too.
