South African comedian Trevor Noah is host of a satirical news series in the United State, The Daily Show. When he has too much to report he had a segment called We Aint Got Time For All That.

That is this column today. I want to get onto the good news so let's hurry through the horrible and/or controversial:

Shamima Begum: She was 15 when she joined ISIS. As I heard one pundit say, she was too young to vote but is now judged to be old enough to have made the decision to leave home. So she should be brought home. She seems to have no qualms about what ISIS has done and no human horror at the cruelty - even while admitting she has seen decapitated heads. She deserves what she gets. You decide!

The Independents: Do you walk away from your party or stay and fight? You decide.

Anti-Semitism: Is that the same thing as criticising the Israeli government? Is there a frightening return to Fascism happening here and around the world? You decide.

Labour now calling for a new Brexit referendum. Good idea or will it just divide the country even further? You decide.

Now onto the good bits.

The most wonderful story of the last couple of weeks is that of the loyalty and gratitude shown by Tony Foulds of Sheffield.

He was just eight during the war when a US plane could have crash landed on a playground where he and his friends were playing - and it is possible the crew would survive. Instead they chose to save the lives of the children by flying away from the park. The plane crashed an nobody survived.

Since then Mr Foulds has never failed to tend a memorial in honour of "his" family and every day he thanks them for his life.

At a time when terrorism, drugs, knife attacks greed cheapen life and a time when so many us us believe we have the right to what we get, this man is a shining example of what life would be like if we were more like him.

He has taken nothing for granted. And who could fail to have been moved when he finally got his wish last week when the RAF and USAF took part in a fly-past over Sheffield in salue to the brave heroes who laid down their lives for a group of children.

The second inspiring story was of two soldiers. One lost both legs and an arm from a roadside bomb and the other helped save his life. Several years later the limbless man discovered that his saviour was nearly homeless, had split from his wife and was suffering severe mental illness.

The limbless soldier opened up his home to the man and helped him recover from PTSD.

Now the pair help other people in similar situations.

What these stories have in common is that both show loyalty, gratitude and a willingness to pay back old debts.

It is so easy to become cynical these days and we are given plenty fodder for cynicism in the daily grind of depressing news.

But Mr Foulds and the two soldiers are a wonderful reminder of the good that still exists and should be embraced!
