It has been a tough few weeks for Nashville, for the country, and for the world. Small businesses are struggling to stay afloat, people are trying to rebuild their homes, many Americans are losing their jobs, and we are all forced to stay in as we fight through this pandemic. Despite all this turmoil, beauty and kindness have remained.
We decided to flip the script and shine our spotlight, while we can, on some of the kindness that we have witnessed from others because Kindness Isn’t Canceled. To grab your exclusive shirt, click here.
This week, we learned of a cool way that a famous newscaster Lester Holt is given back to the community. Young kids, children, and even teenagers are constantly asking questions to their parents and other adults about what is going on in the world, and sometimes, mainstream news is too scary or too much for even adults. With that being said, families can only shelter their kids for so long, and truthfully, they deserve to be given the chance to understand.
For all these reasons, Holt in conjunction with NBC News has started NBC NIGHTLY NEWS: KIDS EDITION as an outlet to discuss all the top stories going on in the world in a way that kids can understand and digest. The program broadcasts on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, running for approximately 10 minutes. The show is also available via NBC’s Youtube channel.
Children have a voice, so it’s important that we give them the platform to be heard and to comprehend everything going on. Even so, Holt makes it a point to discuss lighthearted and happy subjects too because admit all the chaos in the world, there are positive stories to relish in too.
