Good Vibes on dark days

By Eric Rosario

Thank goodness for balance in the Universe and good people, whose works remind us that not all is despair in the ugliness of an election season.

A diverse group of young men and women, who met at a barbecue last month, started getting together on Saturdays to clean beaches.

"We're a very diverse group of friends whom actually just met about a month ago through a barbecue," said Gerand Biou of the group, which named itself #GVMD, or Good Vibes Making a Difference. "We have guys and girls from all parts of Micronesia: Guam, Chuuk, Samoa, Pohnpei, Palau, Kosrae, Philippines."

#GVMD this past Saturday cleaned up Tagachang Beach in Yona. They, indeed, made a difference. Elsewhere, internet trolls spread hatred from the clicks of their keyboards in a political war growing nastier by the day.

"We just want to make a positive difference for our youth and our fellow islanders by cleaning as we go, participate in volunteer work when we're available, and to spread good vibes and make a difference in our island of Guam; at the same time thrive to be better versions of ourselves and most importantly support one another as a group of friends." - Biou
