About us

Peace Orchard started in 2014, when I was watching the news at home. I sat there shocked at what the world viewed as importand news. Every story that was put forth was incredibly negative and overall depressing. So I thought to myself what if I created a site that simply showed the world and the people in it the good things that happen everyday. So that's what we do here at Peace Orchard, we tell the news how we think it should be, positivee and joyful. We want the good deads to go noticed, and we want the people who visit the site to leave with a smile. So enjoy.

A few months ago my son Jordon found out that is father was going to be deployed once again, this time for three months. He was distraught, because his father would not be home for his ninth birthday. The birthday was a very big deal to my son becasue it would be his golden birthday. Thoes who aren"t aware of what a golden birthday is, it is when the age you are turning corresponds to the date you were born. Since Jordon was born July 9th this year woulkd be his golden birthday. Jordon told me he didn't even want a birthday because there was no use without his father, but I convince him to have it anyway. The day of his birthday, I could tell that Jordon wasn't having fun and with all my heart I wished I could do something. We brought out the cake and began singing Happy Birthday to him, but before he blew out his candles somebody whispered in his ear, "make sure that bit's a good wish". I coukd see Jordons eyes light up as he regognized the persons voice who whispered in his ear. He turned to see his father smilling looking at his now nine year old son as Jordon jumped into his fathers arms. The world is full of happy stories, it just up to us to share them.

You are the sum total of everything you've ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot, it's all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive.
