Every child’s birthday should be a special one, even if it’s spent doing something as simple as enjoying sweet treats with friends and family. For one little girl, however, her eighth birthday came very close to ending in tragedy. But its the unexpected way a police officer rose to the occasion that will really melt your heart.
Journey Huey, of New London, Wisconsin, spent all Sunday night baking special cupcakes before her birthday party at school the next day.
“My grandma helped me, but I mostly did most of the work,” little Journey shared with WLUK. “There were 16 of them, and I made some flowers on them and stuff, with M&Ms and some sprinkles, and some frosting.”
As Journey and her grandmother Huli Huey made their way to school the next morning, a sudden accident put their lives in danger.

“We were going down the highway and taking Jojo to school with her cupcakes for her birthday, and the next thing you know, we weren’t going down the road, we were going across the road,” Huli recalled.
After their car slid off the road, it rolled over into the treeline and, by some miracle, neither Journey nor her grandma were harmed.
“We were just driving normal, because we didn’t see anything, so then we just flipped over!” Journey shared with the news outlet.
Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office deputy Sue Bolwerk arrived on the scene shortly afterward and made sure Journey and Huli were safe and sound. Deputy Bolwerk then escorted the family to Journey’s school, Sugarbush Elementary.
Sadly, the cupcakes Journey had worked so hard to prepare for her classmates were destroyed in the accident and didn’t make it to school with her.
Even though little Journey had a sunny, optimistic outlook and planned to simply bake a new batch of cupcakes for the next day, Deputy Bolwerk wasn’t satisfied with that option.
“I thought, you know, she needs cupcakes on her birthday, so I ran down to FestivaI (Foods), don’t know, I think I grabbed about 30 of them,” Deputy Bolwerk shared with WLUK. “I wanted to make sure they had enough, and then brought them to the classroom.
Deputy Bolwerk’s commitment to going above and beyond the call of duty stunned everyone, including Journey’s grandmother, Hali: “There she was with all these cupcakes, and I thought, ‘Oh my gosh! How wonderful!’ and that’s when I start crying…she got me!”
“I guess I’ve spent my career doing these kinds of things,” Bolwerk shared with Yahoo Lifestyle. “Stuff I don’t expect to be recognized for; this is just my job.”
Although the Huey family may never know just what caused the terrifying accident on that fateful day, there’s one thing they do know: a little generosity can go a long way.
MUST SEE: Brave Alaskan Helps Baby Moose Navigate Highway Barrier
Normally, stories about moose on the highway don’t end this well.
Alaska is a state like no other. It’s still a veritably untamed place, where the weather and the wildlife are both out to get you. It takes a special kind of person to hack it in America’s last frontier. A simple run to the grocery store can be hazardous in some conditions, and just taking the garbage out at night may find you face-to-face with hundreds of pounds of brown bear. But ask any Alaskan what they hope to avoid the most, and many will tell you it’s the moose that you have to worry about. These creatures are simply enormous, and they have just enough of an attitude to be more than a nuisance when confronted. Combine that with the fact that plenty of Alaskans are killed each year after automotive collisions with these gargantuan animals, and you have a real recipe for trouble. This week, however, a different sort of moose story made headlines, and with some adorable photos to show for it. Last week, pictures of a man in Alaska lifting a moose calf over a highway guardrail were posted on Facebook. According to Andrea N Salty Bock, who posted the pictures on Facebook, the calf and its mother were near Clam Gulch, on the Kenai Peninsula. The mother was apparently trying to get her baby to go over the guardrail, but it was too tall for the calf. “Traffic stopped to give her the room she needed,” the Facebook post said. “But the calf could not clear the guardrail.” The photos were captivating. Authorities, while thankful that the moose was able to continue on its way, warned that the situation was still a dangerous one, despite the size and age of this animal.
VIRAL VIDEO: Hockey Fans Belt US National Anthem in Stirring Moment
The moment was simply magical.
For as much controversy as has been manufactured around the National Anthem, there is still nothing quite like witnessing a powerful rendition of a song that brings so many of us pride here in the United States. In the annals of sports history, there are but a few moments of anthemic joy that stand atop the list, with this author’s personal favorite being the incredibly salient and pointed version performed by Whitney Houston at the Super Bowl in 1991: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_lCmBvYMRs Now, 30 years and some months later, another unforgettable anthem moment has arrived. Nassau Coliseum was roaring with energy Wednesday night as fans in attendance belted out the National Anthem before the New York Islanders Game 6 victory over the Boston Bruins in a viral moment that is sure to give anyone chills. Nicole Raviv regularly sings “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Isles games at the Coliseum but on Wednesday night she was overpowered by the crowd, even turning over the microphone to the fans. “My heart is full. The coliseum will forever have the best backup singers in the #NHL,” Raviv wrote on Twitter. A moment like this was made for social media, and it soon spread like wildfire. https://twitter.com/NHLonNBCSports/status/1402773091672068098?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1402773091672068098%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fsports%2Fislanders-fans-national-anthem-viral-game-6-bruins The fans were ready, however, after a microphone glitch forced them to join in on the anthem just two games earlier.
