Journalist Greg Brownell: This Is Me.


In the ever-evolving reality of world events, where stories weave through the spectrum of human experience, casting shadows of despair and beams of hope in equal measure, my gaze as a journalist is drawn towards stories that resonate with depth, authenticity, and transformative power. In the pursuit of truth and enlightenment, I seek narratives that not only inform but also inspire, challenge, and unite us. I do this because news to me in general is negative and in some ways fear driven.


The stories I yearn for are those that serve as a mirror to our collective soul, reflecting the complexities, vulnerabilities, and strengths of humanity. These narratives are rich with characters who embody resilience, settings that capture the spirit of the time, and plots that navigate the network of human endeavors and emotions. They are tales that stretch beyond the immediacy of news cycles, offering insights into the human condition, societal shifts, and the unyielding spirit of progress amidst adversity.


At the heart of compelling stories are people. It's their hopes, struggles, triumphs, and failures that inspire a story with life. Whether it’s a tale of a community rallying to support one of its own, a lone whistleblower standing against corruption, or an innovator dreaming up solutions to age-old problems, these characters become the soul of the story, their journeys a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.


In a world flooded with information and sometimes even misinformation, I look for stories that dive deeper, in search of positive truthes. Stories with the power to ignite change or spark a dialogue are especially compelling to me.


In a fragmented world, stories that highlight commonalities, build bridges between different views, and promote understanding are invaluable. These narratives remind us of our shared humanity, the universal challenges we face, and the collective achievements we can celebrate. They serve as a counterpoint to division, fostering a sense of community and mutual respect.


Even in the darkest narratives, I seek threads of hope, resilience, and redemption. This doesn’t mean ignoring the harsh realities but rather highlighting the invincible spirit that emerges in response to challenges. It's about showcasing how, even in the face of adversity, there is learning, growth, and the potential for positive change.


In essence, the stories I seek are those that affirm the complexity, beauty, and enduring strength of the human spirit. They are stories that not only illuminate the world around us but also encourage us to reflect, empathize, and, ultimately, act. Through the lens of journalism, I aim to uncover and tell these stories, contributing to a tapestry of narratives that enrich, educate, and empower. I hope you have enjoyed the articles I have written to date and I hope you choose to come alone with me on this wild ride we call life.


Along the way, I would love to hear from you, your thoughts on stories, the stories you would love to read about. I do this for you.
