Of all the soldiers at Fort Bragg, none are more committed and take their job as seriously as Peter Kuch. This man was torn from his family because of a horrible war in Sudan. He made his way to America to serve and tell his story.
After finding his way to safety through a desert, he came to America shortly after. It became his new home in which he shows to be very passionate about. He was a part of the Sudanese Civil War, and knew he would have to pray in order to stay alive. Peter walked through a desert with friends, and none of them happen to make it. Not even his parents were together with him. But, eventually through the grace of God, he was able to reunite with his mother again.
Watching him speak about his country is special. You cannot miss this story. Watching Peter speak about the U.S. the way he does will bring you to tears. more >>
This #MakeBlindnessHistory project was created so that people who are legally blind can "see" using specialized glasses. These glasses are made by eSight. This mother was finally able to see, and the first thing she laid eyes on was her beautiful child.
Yvonne Felix was one of the first people in the world to wear the glasses. She has tested them out and given a positive reaction. The one problem she had, was that they were extremely expensive. She feels that all people should have access to this amazing technology. Her sister, Kathy Beitz, is featured in the video and is legally blind. As she prepared to give birth to her child, Kathy wanted to witness this moment as it happened.
#MakeBlindnessHistory allowed this moment to become reality, as well as get the opportunity to see her child grow. She is the first recipient and will not be the last. more >>

The United States confirmed on Tuesday that 26-year-old American aid worker Kayla Mueller has been killed at the hands of terror group ISIS. President Barack Obama said that Mueller represented what is "best about America," while her family revealed that she drew comfort from her "deep Christian faith" while in captivity.
"Our hearts are breaking for our only daughter, but we will continue on in peace, dignity, and love for her," Mueller's parents, Carl and Marsha Mueller, and her brother, Eric, said in a statement.
The aid worker had been held hostage by ISIS since August 2013, The Guardian noted. Supporters of ISIS said last week that Mueller had been killed during a Jordanian air strike, and though the U.S. confirmed the news, it could not determine the cause of her death. more >>
All over the world, homelessness has become a major issue. More than 600,000 people in the U.S. are living without homes. The Toolbox aims to tackle this problem by questioning homeless people, in hopes of finding the real difference between those who are fortunate and those who are not.
A the end of the day, we are all the same. No one is better than another person because they have money. Or feels differently because they are more fortunate. These people were unfortunately dealt a tough hand in life. There are many organizations out there who are concerned and do all they can to help the less fortunate people.
The Director, Thomas Reiten, worked with Union Rescue Mission to shoot this beautiful video. This piece tries to discover what the real difference is between those who are fortunate and those who are not. It does a great job, and asks a very important question at the end. more >>
