The bullied teen Keaton Jones lamented about why people tyrannize other people. He said it is not right to ridicule people who look physically different from others as it is not their fault. He encouraged those who are always made fun of to stay strong and not let the traumatic experience disrupt their lives. He explained that things might be hard, but this would get better someday.

The video showed how bullies called him ugly because of his nose and mocked he had no friends. He was subjected to physical violence as these bullies threw bread at him, poured milk on him, and put ham down his clothes.

Kimberly Jones, mom of Keaton, explained that she filmed the video after Keaton called her to fetch him because of his fear of going to lunch.

She discoursed on a Facebook post that all Keaton wanted was to have a sense of belonging. It was sad that there were a few people who felt his son did not belong anywhere.

The video became viral with millions of views and was shared thousand times.

Several public figures reacted to the video with consoling words for Keaton. Saturday Night Live alum Rachel Drach and Massachusetts natives Kennedy and Evans, quarterback of the University of Tennessee Jarrett Guarantano, and music artist and rapper Snoop Dogg.

Evans advised Keaton to stay strong and not let their actions turn him cold as things would get better. And then he invited Keaton to the Los Angeles premiere of his Avengers movie, where he played the iconic role of Captain America.

In addition, Kennedy commented that people could learn from Keaton Jones.

Guarantano even stepped further as he met Jones in person. He tweeted he met his new best bud Keaton and realized they have lots in common.

Athlete Delanie Walker shared a poem from Buddha before inviting Keaton and and his family to watch a game against Jacksonville Jaguars through a video posted on his Twitter account. In addition, Taylor Lewan offered to be his bodyguard.

As Rapper Snoop Dogg posted that video in his official Instagram account, Keaton also gained a friend for life.

Quick-Thinking Teen Rescues 14 Clydesdale Horses from a Barn Fire

Sixteen-year-old Macon Martin jumped to rescue his family’s barn when it caught on fire in Oconee Country, Georgia.

Fourteen horses were inside their barn named Classic City Clydesdales when lightning struck it, causing a fire.

Clydesdale horses rescued by Macon Martin

The lighting shook the whole house, which confused Shannon Martin, farm owner, Mark’s husband. “One minute I am in bed. The next minute I am standing up next to the bed trying to figure out what bomb went off.”

In addition, the power went out because of the lightning strike that caused the doors to lock. Inside the barn were 14 horses, including a three-week-old colt and a pregnant mare that was about to give birth at any moment.

Were it not for the quick reflex of Macon, all of the horses would have possibly died in the fire. So it was good that the teen immediately moved when he saw the fire burning their barn.

“I just ran right out, I had no clothes on, no shoes – no nothing,” Macon said.

Macon used the John Deere utility vehicle to open the barn’s doors while calling for his mom to do the same.

Both Macon and his mom Shannon were able to open the doors and rescued the horses. Despite the loss of the whole barn, the Martins could save all of their Clydesdale horses. Unfortunately, the barn was utterly burning when the firefighters arrived. Despite their efforts to completely put out the fire before it engulfed the whole house, the entire barn was lost.

Despite this tragic event, the Martins are on the road to recovery and breed and display beautiful Clydesdale horses.

“It will take some time to rebuild,” Shannon Martin said. “This was a dream. We saved and built it brick by brick. We’ll have to start over.”

The Martins will be starting all over again with their horses that travel to parades and events all over the USA.

“Big horses everybody thinks (are) real tough,” she said. “but Clydes are sort of the beauty queens of the draft horse world. They can be pretty fragile.”

Tourists can visit their farm by setting an appointment, and the family offers trail rides on their glamorous Clydesdale horses.

Elderly Couple Crying Out Of Loneliness Comforted by Police with Cooked Spaghetti

It truly is heartbreaking to see the world crumble down because of people full of hatred and sadness in their hearts.

Elderly couple Michele, 94, and Jole, 84, were watching the news on TV one night. Michele couldn’t handle hearing the reports about crimes and abuse that she let out and cried. She wailed loud enough for her neighbors to hear. Alarmed, they called the police thinking the couple was in danger and needed help.

The police arrived and found them unharmed. In a post, the officers said the couple was not scammed or robbed but something had to be done.

The police officers learned the real reason why Michele and Jole were crying. The couples felt so isolated because they had not had any visitors for a very long time. No loved ones checked on them. Their close friends moved away, and the city they were living in was quiet as most people were on vacation. They felt forgotten.

Upon hearing their sentiments, police officers Andrea, Alessandro, Ernesto, and Mirko, decided to stay for a while. They spent time with the couple and cooked them a delicious spaghetti with cheese and butter. It was a simple pasta dish made special with the most important ingredient – humanity.

This is one instance where the police officers did more – they listened with their hearts to help heal the couple’s loneliness.

Bullied-turned-bully opens himself to Jesus; not ashamed to share how he got saved

Tristan Steckler is an ordinary guy with sentiments shared by all. He turned into a bully after being bullied. But his courage to speak boldly about his former life and salvation through YouTube is commendable.

The video showed him addressing people on the internet that he should share his testimony online. At first, he was afraid of what people would say about him after hearing about his conversion. Quoting Matthew 10:28, he decided to push through with it since the Bible reminded His children not to be afraid.

Matthew 10:28 – In the King James Version of the Bible, the text reads: And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Tristan said he didn’t care about how he talked before. There was no deep connection between him and the Lord even though he, as a Catholic, went to church every Sunday.

He remembered how people used to bully him a lot because he was once overweight. When he went to high school, the grudge was still in his heart. That emotion turned him into the person he once hated; he became a bully to other people.

He became much worse when he entered college. Drugs, girls, alcohol, and pornography defined his lifestyle. He knew he was already losing himself when he decided to open himself up to Jesus. He read the Bible and took his relationship with God seriously. His faith saved him from himself and from all the vices he once had.

Because of Jesus, he started to love himself and learned to talk to everyone with kindness. After many years, his relationship with God became stronger and stronger.

He ended his testimony by saying it’s okay to ask God for help. He reminded us that anything is possible with God by our side.

Police Officer Adopts 4-Year Old Girl from Unsafe Home

Arizona police officer Brian Zach legally adopted the four-year-old girl he rescued from abusers while working on the child abuse case involving the child.

He was the on-duty patrol sergeant at Kingman Police Department when a call for a welfare check came for Kaila, then 2-years-old with severe injuries. Hearing about a battered toddler brought Lt. Zach back to painful, haunting memories of a 13-month-old homicide victim in 2011 that he failed to rescue.

“I didn’t get to save that girl. So Kaila was my second chance for that,” Lt. Zach said.

The Kaila case happened in March 2018. When Lt. Zach responded to the call from Kaila’s home, he found her with a fractured skull, dislocated elbow, and brain bleed. She was immediately flown to Las Vegas for treatment in a specialized hospital.

His felt deeply sorry for the little girl covered in bruises. “She had a very strong spirit about her,” he said. During the time of Kaila’s treatment, Lt. Zach was already plotting a way to get her back home.

The authorities took Kaila away from her home, from her biological parents. They were also unable to find kin to look after her. After some time, the authorities asked Lt. Zach if his family could consider being her placement home. The officer immediately said yes.

According to the Children’s Bureau of the US Department of Health and Human Services, fictive kinship occurs when children are placed with close family friends rather than family.

Things moved fast after they cleared the hurdles to ensure that his taking in Kaila would not jeopardize the criminal case against her abusers. They met on the weekend; she was at Lt. Zach’s home by Wednesday evening.

“We lived each week not knowing if she was going to go back to her biological parents or how long we were going to keep her,” Zach explained.

On August 18, 2020, after 30 months of fostering Kaila, they made their adoption official.

“When the judge basically said ‘Congratulations,’ I felt this huge sigh of relief, knowing that I’ll never have that worry again about her,” Zach said after the ruling. “She’ll always be with us, she’ll be loved, she’ll be cared for.”

4 Florida Men Push Elderly Lady’s Broken Scooter Out of the Rain So She Could Get Home

Four young men were seen pushing an elderly woman in a broken scooter during a downpour uphill in a Florida neighborhood.

The group was about to go back to their hotel after a tiring workday from Rebounderz Adventure Parks in Forest City when they came across the senior citizen. Stuck in the rain, she had plastic on her head and was having a hard time maneuvering the electric wheelchair. They knew she was heading to her retirement home in Seminole County a quarter-mile away. They offered to push her as she sat on the scooter.

Katty Castro, a public relations representative of the Florida Living Independent Community in Seminole County, Florida, witnessed the endearing act. She took photos of the young men who valiantly and enjoyably assisted the old lady.

“As a mom of teenagers, I want my children to grow up like these ‘modern heroes,’ to make a difference each day no matter the environment,” Katty said. She expressed hope that other young people would learn from that act to better their respective communities.

JohnMorgan Massa, one of the men who assisted the lady, said anyone could do what they did. Simple acts like “holding the door, picking up someone’s spilled groceries, reaching for an item on the top shelf in the grocery store, and, yes, helping someone whose electric wheelchair broke down in the rain,” are no-brainers, he said.

Massa said that even though they were tired and wanted to go home, their day wasn’t as bad as the old woman’s. “She had a plastic bag on her head to keep her hair dry”, Massa said.

By helping a vulnerable fellow in their community, all they wanted was to bring her home safely. It did not occur in their minds to get attention nor to expect recognition.

The elderly woman refused to be identified but had sent her gratitude to the young men.

Helping others is one of the recurring themes in the Bible. Were you inspired by these men? What simple act of kindness do you think you can do today? Let us know in the comments below.

Heavyweight Champ Tyson Fury Thanks Jesus After Winning Bout with Rival

After three matches over the last three years, Tyson Fury finally ended his rivalry with Deontay Wilder with one final punch during the 11th round of their heavyweight fight Saturday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fury had won the championship belt by defeating Wilder in February of 2020. He retained his World Boxing Council heavyweight title with this win.

“I would like to say thank you to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In the mighty name of Jesus, I won this fight tonight again. I give him the glory. He gives me the victory,” the British boxer said in a post-fight interview.

Fury detailed the struggle he went through in the ring, especially during the fourth round when he fell twice.

“I was down a couple of times. I was hurt. [Wilder]’s a strong puncher. He is a tough man. I was hitting him with some big shots. And my Lord and Savior rose me to my feet tonight to give him the glory,” he said.

About his rival, Fury said the fight was worthy of the trilogy that it was. The past three years they spent in the ring were epic.

“Wilder is a tough fighter. He gave me a real run for my money tonight. And I’ve always said I’m the best in the world and he’s the second-best. He’s got no love for me, Deontay Wilder because I’ve beat(en) him three times….I want some love and opportunity to show him some respect and he didn’t want to give it back. So that’s Deontay’s problem. I’ll pray for him, so God will soften his heart,” Fury said. 

Fury wore a baseball cap with the words “Jesus: El Rey Viene,” a Spanish phrase that means “Jesus, the King is Coming,” during the post-fight interview.

Couple Finds Puppy with No Ears Crying On Doorstep And There’s A $5K Reward To Find The Monster

Dogs are man’s best friend so it is heartbreaking to see some evil human being hurt dogs for no reason at all.

Kaylee Doonkeen and her husband heard a 3-month-old puppy crying in their yard in the middle of a Wednesday night before Thanksgiving.

They were shocked to find that its ears were folded back. Upon closer inspection, the condition of the retriever mix was worst when they saw that the puppy’s ears were cut off.

The Doonkeens immediately called Animal Welfare for its team to immediately treat the open wound of Rocky – the name they gave to the puppy. Under the welfare workers’ care, Rocky would not get any infections. The Animal Welfare Superintendent Jon Gary said Rocky would be fine. Their veterinarian said the puppy would not have ears anymore but could still hear. The fur would just grow over the open wound.

Gary said they often received numerous cases of animal cruelty in Oklahoma City but Rocky’s mutilation case was unique. He said it was unbelievable that someone would deliberately cut off the entire ear of an adorable puppy.

Despite the horrific thing that happened, Rocky remained playful, friendly and trusting like a normal pup.

There had been efforts to track down Rocky’s abuser. Gary requested the public to call Animal Welfare at 405-297-3117 for any information on the animal abuser. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) also helped with $5,000 to fund the search. A man from Oklahoma, Matt Niksch also vowed to help track Rocky’s abuser. He gave out $1,000 to reward the person for the lead on Rocky’s abuser.

“There’s definitely a link between animal cruelty, and domestic violence and domestic abuse,” Gary said. “And, so, this is a bigger picture than people realize, and it’s really important that we do our jobs to try and determine who may have done this.”

Woman Finds Out She’s in Labor After Going to Hospital for Abdominal Pain

Life is full of surprises. For Judy and Jason Brown, they were more than shocked when they found out they’d be mom and dad on the day they went to the hospital.

Judy Brown went to Beverly Hospital in Beverly, Massachusetts for checkup due to severe abdominal pain. The 47-years-old thought the pain was caused by a blockage or gallstone but after going through examinations, the nurse told her she was pregnant and was going into labor.

Judy and Jason were overwhelmed. In their 22 years of marriage, they never thought they would become parents. It never occurred to Judy that she was expecting a child. She thought she was just gaining weight. But Jason had been noticing some weird changes in her body.

Jason shared Judy’s stomach was a bit hard when it should be soft and flabby if it’s just about weight gain. But they didn’t think much of it.

Judy gave birth to a healthy 8-pound, 2-ounces baby girl. The couple named her Carolyn Rose, after both their mothers’ names. They never had any baby items with them; they had to borrow a baby car seat and a bassinet just to leave the hospital.

According to Dr. Kimberly Gecsi, an OB GYNE at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland, there are similar cases to Judy’s. Some women do not know they are carrying a child or could be because they are in denial. She also mentioned that women in their 40s should not think they would not get pregnant because of their age. The doctor added that physicians should be counseling women about contraceptives, especially those in the same age group as Judy.

Judy and Jason had no baby shower for the arrival of their little bundle of joy. But Carolyn Rose came, and she was a wonderful, unexpected blessing they ever had.

Were you also surprised by what happened to Judy and Jason? What would you do if you were in the same situation as Judy’s? Share your thoughts and don’t forget to like and share the story with your friends and family.

Bride Paralyzed in Car Accident Stuns Guests, Walks Down Aisle to Meet Cowboy at Altar

Gina Giaffoglione used to lead an active lifestyle as a gymnast. Hence, being in a wheelchair was the farthest that Gina could think of, until the car mishap.

Six years before her wedding day, a car accident paralyzed half of Gina’s body from the belly button to her toes. But she did not allow this handicap from fulfilling her childhood dream of walking down the aisle on her wedding with her dear father by her side.

Gina’s positive attitude towards her condition and her determination to walk, at least during her wedding day, amazed her team of physical therapists at the CHI Health Rehabilitation in Iowa. 

The exercises were not easy but Gina persevered. For every session, she learned how to stand tall and take a few steps using customized brace and crutches.

Her persistence and focus yielded positive results.

“When you can’t feel anything, and you’re doing something you used to do that you used to take for granted … it’s a floating sensation you can’t even explain. It’s not even talking about the walking; your emotions are floating. Everything just seems to feel so good at that moment,” Gina said. 

Gina and her fiance John Springhower did not tell her family and friends that she would walk with her dad during the ceremony. The couple wanted to surprise their guests and loved ones.

“I’m my dad’s only girl, and I’m the baby. Dad deserves that,” she said in an interview. 

Come Gina’s wedding day came, her friends and family came to witness the once-in-lifetime ceremony.

When the wedding rite started, they were stunned to see her get up from the wheelchair. Aided by a special kind of crutch, she walked down the aisle with dad in tow.

Gina’s little surprise sent her friends and family to tears. She and her optimism was such an inspiration to them. 

She managed to get through the entire distance and finally met her ever-supportive groom, John Springhower, at the altar. 

“He’s just that wonderful of a guy that he doesn’t see the chair. He just sees me for me and forgets about how I get around,” Gina once said

“It was so special. The fact that we can even help her get to that point is awesome,” Diana Palm, the physical therapist who cared for Gina’s needs, said in an interview. 

Bullies Mock Daughter’s Looks. Fast-Forward 25 Years And She Is Getting Revenge By Being Famous On YouTube

Lizzie Velasquez was born with neonatal progeroid syndrome. This genetic disease hinders her body from gaining fat and from having a stronger heart and bones. She has a deformed face, and her right eye is blind.

Despite her condition, Lizzie grew up in a loving home. Her parents Rita Borja Velásquez and Guadalupe Fonsi Velásquez assured her that she was perfect that way.

“I remember them sitting me down saying: ‘First of all, there was nothing wrong with you, the only difference is that you’re smaller than the other kids. And you’re brave enough and strong enough to do whatever you put your mind into,'” Lizzie shared.

Lizzie went through a difficulty in public school as other kids bullied her for her appearance.

“Oftentimes, there were no words said to me, but it hurt so much as someone screaming something hateful to me through a megaphone,” she said.

Though Lizzie was not happy in school, she found refuge and love in her family and faith in God. When she reached middle school, the bullying continued, but Lizzie changed her attitude by trusting God. Since then, she had never been happier. God gifted Lizzie with kind friends that she felt more confident.

A YouTube video about Lizzie, “The World’s Ugliest Woman’,” went public and gained at least 4.8 million views. It made her famous but cyberbullying came after. The online attacks with derogatory comments about her look crushed her deep down.

“If you were going to be so ugly, why didn’t your parents abort you.”

“Can you please just find a gun and kill yourself.”

Lizzie hoped to find comments that would sympathize and understand her condition. There was none. The video broke her and made her lose her confidence again. But that was momentary. She collected herself and fought back by speaking about anti-bullying in her school.

She felt empowered after that first public speaking engagement. More speaking engagements followed. That event paved the path for Lizzie’s life purpose in the next five years, being a public speaker and speaking up against bullying. She continued to inspire people as she spoke in churches and events. Her TED Talks gained worldwide attention and earned 10 million views.

Despite her fame, Lizzie attributed her confidence to God. “I wasn’t doing this to be famous. I was doing this to share a message. The whole speech, every word that came out of my mouth is a God thing,” she shared.

Lizzie continued to let the world hear her voice by speaking to people in different countries, creating her own Youtube channel, and writing the book ‘Dare to be Kind’ where she shared tips on overcoming life’s challenges.

17 Years Old in Jail Thought It is the End of Life Until He Physically Encounters Jesus

When you’re at your greatest downfall and you feel no one is there to help, seek God and ask for help. Once you become His child, trust that God will always be there to come and deliver for He never abandons nor forsakes His children.

Alexander Pagani started getting involved in a lot of delinquencies at a very young age. He was arrested when he was 11 years old. At 14, he was already sitting in a Juvenile Detention Center sentenced to a minimum of one-year imprisonment.

Both of Alexander’s parents were into the drug culture. And that was when he decided to be independent.

He felt total rejection. Despite his young age, he needed to do everything to survive.

Alexander incessantly caused chaos in the street of The Bronx, yet his grandmother, a Christian, did not give up on him. Several times she tried to introduced him to Jesus Christ. Every time, Alexander declined her and the great offer. At 17, he was arrested for multiple crimes involving robbery, burglary, and kidnapping. While in prison, he stabbed two inmates for no reason.

Vilma, Alexander’s aunt, was a youth counselor who similarly reached out to him. A Christian guard likewise shared the Gospel with him. Seeing he had no other choice, Alexander listened to them.

During his court trial, he heard a voice telling him to plead guilty. He knew deep down it was God’s voice. He followed the voice and pleaded guilty. The 21 years of imprisonment went down to nine years.

“Jesus Christ came into my cell and he speaks to my right ear, ‘follow me,’” he recalled. “I lifted my hand and when I said ‘I accept,’ it felt like things were breaking off of me. And I felt so peaceful, and I fell asleep.”

When Alexander woke up the next day, he knew he was a changed man.

All of his vices, cigarettes, pornography, everything bad in his life seemed to have vanished instantly. Behind the prison walls, he decided to live for Jesus and accepted Him in his life.

“…I realized that my relationship with the Lord is based on me loving him, not fearing him, and I began to love him, love him to this day, he’s my father, he’s everything that I have.” Alexander said.

Today, Alexander is happily married and is living as servant of the Lord who saved him out of the darkness.

Neighbor’s Car Blocks Woman’s Driveway Until ‘Tough’ Man Teaches Him A Lesson

The Tulk moves an illegally parked vehicle on the driveway with his bare strength. | Source

Hakan Acar, 27, from Luton, United Kingdom had to do the unthinkable to help his aunt. With his strength using his bare hands, he moved a neighbor’s Vauxhall Corsa that was blocking his aunt Abi Mustafa’s driveway. After that incident, he became known as the “The Tulk,” short for The Turkish Hulk.

Hakan said the neighbor blocked his aunt’s driveway as an act of revenge. But his aunt said she parked the car on the public road.

Describing the lifting/moving incident, Abi Mustafa said she had to call her nephew when she saw her neighbor’s car parked across her driveway again. Obviously the neighbor refused to move it. The neighbors’ habit of leaving their car in front of their house had been going on for a while. When her neighbors allegedly blocked her driveway as a form of retaliation, the parking war had gotten out of hand.

Although there are several open spots on the road, Abi Mustafa said her neighbor parked their car in front of the driveway on purpose.

“I’m quite a calm person – I’m not an angry person at all but hearing the way he spoke to my auntie just upset me a bit. To be honest I didn’t go over with the intention of actually pushing the car in the first place. I just wanted to see how heavy it was but then I realized I could move it.” The Tulk said.

Hakan raised the front bumper and accelerated backward. He gained momentum and eventually pushed the car back out of the way. As shown in the video, Hakan’s sandals flew as he exerted pressure to perform the amazing feat. The strongman shook off the other sandal and pushed the car out of the driveway.

What Hakan did is a testament to what a human body is capable of doing when pressed. But in Hakan’s case, it was evident that he was well-trained and disciplined to the ultimate level.

In Matthew 18:21-22, Jesus taught us to forgive our neighbors not seven times but seventy-seven times. If you had such a neighbor who continuously bothers you, what would you do as a Christian? Let us know in the comments below!

Single Dad Adopts 13-year-old Left at Hospital by Adoptive Parents

Family doesn’t necessarily mean the members have to be blood-related. Even without sharing the same DNA, persons who want to be in each other’s lives with mutual love and care between them are already a family.

Tony started in the foster care system at age two. At four, a couple from Oklahoma adopted him. At age 11, for unknown reasons, his adoptive parents left him at a hospital and never came back.

Meanwhile, Peter Mutazabi of Charlotte, North Carolina received a call from a foster care worker asking if he would take in 13-year-old Tony for the weekend. Without any hesitation, Peter, who works in World Vision United States, said, “Yes!”. Why? Because Peter was once a foster kid himself. He ran away from his abusive parents when he was ten and then met his adoptive parents. Also, he has fostered 12 kids for three years already, and having Tony won’t be a burden.

Tony was supposed to stay with Peter for two days only. But after learning Tony’s story, Peter decided to take him in for long and be his forever family, as forever dad.

Later, in a courthouse in Charlotte, North Carolina, Peter Mutabazi legally adopted Tony. They had been inseparable since then. They spent time together doing things they both enjoy, like watching movies, playing board games, bicycling, and reading books.

Peter said that Tony was “the nicest, smartest kid” he ever had. He expressed his happiness on Instagram, posting he felt so loved despite his shortcomings. He felt wanted and that he was happy to be the missing piece in Tony’s heart.

Peter’s own adoption story and his exposure with World Vision United States enable him to pay forward the good deed done to him to less privileged kids.
