I am losing my faith in humanity. How can I restore it?

Most of the things that I see and heard is how evil humans are toward each other. Human in nature are evil and selfish though I know there are still good but it seems like evil outweigh good. Lately there are things happen in my life which lessen my belief on positive things and losing my faith in humanity. Of course there is a part of me that don't want this to happen but my reasons why I should trust again is shattering.

      Although I don't think we need to throw the TV out, it is certainly a good idea to limit use of it. In the winter months, I sometimes watch documentaries, nature & science presentations, and world news on public TV.

      The TV is off for about 6 months in the summer, when more outside activities take precedence:>) If there is something I want to learn more about, it's really easy to get information on the internet. And, of course, TED is a good resource for information as well. What we focus on is a choice:>)
