Allison Christensen has always enjoyed arts and crafts, building things for her favorite team the Seattle Seahawks. At 11-years-old she was in need of a heart transplant due to problems breathing and blockage. After being taken to the hospital, she gets a special visit from someone she never expected.
She got a visit from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at the hospital! Meeting him really made her happy and turned her frown upside down. Russell cared for her and made her feel special at the hospital, instead of sad. Within days they were able to find a heart to transplant into her body, and it was successful. As it turned out, this meeting created a very special bond between these two. After Allison presented Russell with a special wallet, this special gift bound them together as best friends.
After leaving with his gift, he put up a picture of the wallet on social media and got a lot of positive feedback. It is moments like this that are most special for a star of a football team. Thank you to both of these icons for putting joy into our hearts with this beautiful story! more >>
Pope Francis spoke to a large crowd last week to address the massacre in France and condemned "deviant forms of religion" for the shedding of blood.
"Losing their freedom, people become enslaved, whether to the latest fads, or to power, money, or even deviant forms of religion," Francis said in an address to the members of the Diplomatic Corps. There is a "culture of rejection" that leads to "the breakdown of society and spawning of violence and death."
Last week was one of the worst attacks in the city of Paris, with a total of 17 people left dead after persons loyal to the Islamic State murdered 12 persons, and another two people killed a police officer and several hostages in a standoff that ended on Friday. The three suspected killers were shot dead by police after the standoff. In the wake of the assault, Parisians and European leaders came together to send a powerful message that they would not cower to terrorists. more >>

A young man plans so simple and kind for people shopping at a supermarket, it brings them to tears of joy. Bringing joy to the lives of others is always something that is worth going the extra mile.
This man definitely went above and beyond to make these people happy. What he did was set it up so when they get to the register the groceries are already paid for. Just taking that extra burden off peoples backs and making their life easier brings them uncontrollable joy. Buying their groceries was simple, but meant so much more.
