his heart froze when the child revealed the truth

Whether we want to admit it or not, we are all guilty of judging others to one degree or another. It’s only human to do this as we try to navigate our surroundings, but that doesn’t mean it’s okay.

Admitting that we can be prejudiced is not flattering, as it paints a dark and grim side of us.

The father in the story below wasn’t proud to reveal that side of him either, but he decided to do it so we could all learn something very important from his son…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

Blanton O’Neill was outside his home with his 11-year-old son, Sean, when they saw something that could happen to anyone – and it’s very easy to make the same mistake.

The father later described the events in a Facebook post:

“I debated with myself whether to publish this story as it shows an unflattering side of me as a person. But I think in the end this is a picture of many of us if we are really honest with ourselves.

Yesterday, when Sean and I were driving to his soccer tournament we stopped at a small gas station to get something to drink. While I paid, I gave Sean the keys so he could walk back to the car.

It took me a while to pay and as I was leaving the store, I noticed Sean’s door open and he walked away from the car towards a man in a wheelchair. He was an older African American guy with no legs and he looked ‘homeless’.

My first reaction was, unfortunately, ‘Oh no!’, he asked Sean for money and called him to come to him.

“When I got into the car, I asked him what exactly happened there.

‘Nothing dad. I just asked him if he needed help’,

He said no thanks, that he was fine and thanked me for asking. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

You see, at first glance I didn’t even notice that the man in the wheelchair was trying to cross the gravel path in the parking lot, using only his hands. I didn’t notice that my 11 year old was man enough to see this through the
car mirror, put down the tablet he was playing with, go outside and offer the guy help.

As we started driving Sean asked if we could give the man money. We stopped by him and I asked if a few dollars would help him.

He said, ‘No thanks, I’m fine. Your son is a true gentleman and he has given me everything I need today. May God bless you.’

We closed the window and started driving. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Sean waving goodbye to him and he waved back with a big smile on his face.

Would I get out of the car and do the same?

I am not publishing the post so that Sean will get compliments. I post this to expose bad things we have in the world. We see so much bitterness and hate every day in the news, in every Facebook post, in every tweet.
It’s not something left and right. We all do it. We forgot to look at the world through the eyes of a child.

Many people have told us over the years what a big heart Sean has. He can be larger than life at social events, when he chooses to be the joker, but these small acts of kindness sometimes go under the radar, as they should.
Sean wasn’t looking for compliments for what he did. He didn’t even know I would see it. He just saw a person he thought needed help.

If we all made someone smile, at least once a day, whether it’s a stranger, a friend or family member, we think we would change the world for the better. Blanton’s story reveals why it is important not to judge anyone at first
sight – no person can be defined by looks or clothes.

Children know how to see the person behind the surface, but we adults have lost ourselves and judge people too quickly, too easily, all the time.

We hope that Sean’s example of a small and good deed will be one step on the way to change – maybe we can all do something good today for someone we don’t know?

Couple divorce just 3 minutes into their marriage after groom’s comment about bride during wedding

Emily Ratajkowski applauds young divorcees for embracing independence over ‘married fantasy’

A couple may have just broken the record for one of the most short-lived marriages, lasting just three minutes Reports claim that the couple from Kuwait called it quits when the groom mocked his bride as they were pronounced husband and wife, who he allegedly called ‘stupid’ for tripping up…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

 

Subsequently, they didn’t even make it out of the wedding ceremony as newlyweds.

The bizarre story soon surfaced on X/Twitter, with one person writing: “I went to a wedding where the groom spent his speech making fun of his wife like it was some kind of roast, as did her father. She should have done what this woman did.”

Another simply called the (short) series of events “unbelievable”.

It comes after model, author and podcast host Emily Ratajkowski reclaimed the stigma around divorce and rebranded it “chic”.

“So, it seems that a lot of young ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30,” EmRata said. “As someone who got married at 26, has been separated for a little over a year [at] 32, I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better,” she added, referencing her split from Sebastian Bear-McClard.

She went on to describe being in your twenties as being “the trenches,” before adding: “There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life [and] everything, and having tried that marriage fantasy and realising that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to be.”

They said it was a meth lab, but ‘they were cooking child in the bedroom’!

Published

Authorities said that the responding officers were called out to a mobile home on reports that a meth lab was operating inside. But, unfortunately, when the officers arrived, they found something far worse cooking in the bedroom. Now, both parents are going away for a very long time.

Per reports, both parents, Kathlen and Lucas, had been holed up inside for days, with one room of the mobile house transformed into an oven — until it became too hot to ignore…Click Here To Continue Reading>> …Click Here To Continue Reading>>

The woman, who happened to be pregnant when cops were called to her home, had been up for 38 hours with her man on a meth-making and taking bender.

She mentioned that she heard a noise from the other room of the small home and thought, at one point, about checking on it, but her drugs were too important to take a few steps away from them. After the sounds stopped, she finally opened the door to the room and found her 2-year-old son, Braydon, ‘had been cooked to death from the space heater’ that she left on for him.

The parents thought that locking the child in the room with a space heater on high for almost two days was enough to keep him comfortable so they could do their drugs. The heater didn’t have a thermostat on it that would allow it to shut off when it got too hot, ultimately making an oven out of the room.

To make matters worse, officers not only found that the trailer house of horrors had been condemned and had f-ces and filth everywhere, but also that the child was severely malnourished after not being fed for days. Disturbingly, if the heat didn’t kill him, the starvation probably would have. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

According to FOX News, this isn’t the pregnant mom’s first run-in with the law. In fact, she hadn’t even fully resolved her child endangerment charge from when she was pulled over for driving under the influence with a kid in tow when she caused the death of her son.

She and her parents faced 20 years to life for abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death, topped off with an additional drug charge. Both parents were sentenced to 21 years in prison for their role in the death of their 2-year-old son, who was left in a hot room for 38 hours.

Dear readers, we are republishing this story amid recent reports that child abuse has surged in America during the pandemic.

A black woman is driving home when flashing red and blue lights appear in her rearview mirror. She pulls over to the side of the deserted road and rolls down her window, but then something unexpected happens.

Jasmine had always been a night owl. She used the quiet hours to work on her art. This particular evening, she’d been at her studio. She lost track of time as she worked on a new piece for an upcoming gallery show. It wasn’t unusual for her to be driving home late.
