Good News: The power of a smile

The power of a smile

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It's been a rough week for the entire country. Wednesday is National Smile Power Day. It's a great time to remember the tremendous power of a simple smile.

WBTV went to uptown Charlotte to ask people about smiling.

"Generally, people are business-focused and getting to work, which is kind of a trend in today's world as well," said one woman.

Too many people don't smile. It's no secret people carry around a lot more than just their bodies everyday. Heavy thoughts and sometimes things that make you not want to smile.

The power of a smile is unparalleled. Something so simple can be something huge.

I set up my camera and sat on wall smiling at all those busy people in uptown Charlotte. Many of them didn't smile back. And that's OK. But some did.

You should watch the video, and listen too, to the reason some people say a smile is so important.
