A peewee football team in Massachusetts decided to take a stand against bullying in a big way. After noticing that 6-year-old Danny Keefe was being bullied, 11-year-old Tommy Cooney took action and organized "Danny Appreciation Day" in his honor; it's a day that Keefe will probably remember the rest of his life.
It all started when Cooney noticed that Keefe was consistently being picked on for wearing a suit and tie every day and speaking with some difficulty. Cooney decided to do something for the young boy, who served as the water boy for the peewee football team. He organized "Danny Appreciation Day" and told the entire team about it, in the hope that they would join in. For one day, the team all wore suits and ties to school, and several other students decided to join in as well. In all, approximately 40 youth participated in the day, making it all the more special for Keefe.
In this touching video, a young boy in 1st grade was constantly getting picked on for his speech impediment and the way he dresses. As the waterboy of the 5th grade football team, the entire team decided to dress up in a shirt and tie just like their beloved waterboy to stand by him in support and to tell bullies to stand down.

It is not so often we see videos about young homeless people spreading a positive message. However, this 10 year old boy, Mark, sees a beautiful world even though he is in an unstable place in life. He is a young boy who attends school and does everything most 10 year olds would but doesn't have his own home to live in. This young boy doesn't have much, but he is grateful anyway. His powerful message will inspire you to be THANKFUL for all that you have and to know how important it is to love one another.
Please PRAY for Mark and ALL the homeless people in the world today!

Jonathan Byler Dann was able to count his blessings after he and his family emerged from his tornado shelter alive and safe. But when he stood amid the rubble of his home in Washington, Illinois he realized he was still missing a loved family member - their beloved dog Maggie, who was nowhere to be found.
Maggie had refused to leave her kennel as the EF4 Tornado barreled through their neighborhood Sunday. Mr. Dann posted a picture after the tornado revealing his grief, reporting that they had lost their dog.
However, miraculously, after 30 hours of digging through the remains of the house there was some good news for Mr. Dann, Rebecca and their four children; they heard a slight bark from under the rubble, and after frantically digging deeper, they found Maggie buried, but very much alive. more >>
