With all the hatred and division normally shared on social media these days, it’s always worthwhile to take some time to appreciate the incredible force for good it can also be.

Every now and then, we are treated to an amazing story of a video of someone doing a simple act of kindness which goes viral. And before they know it, their act of kindness is returned tenfold by the people around the world who were inspired and touched to see their acts on social media.

One incredible story like this is that of a supermarket employee who took the time to teach a young autistic man to help him stock shelves, something his family, who was watching, called a “miracle.”

The employee, Jordan Taylor, was stocking shelves at Rouses Market when he noticed Jack Ryan watching him. He decided to show him how to stock the shelves and the two worked together to stock milk and juice for almost half an hour.

Ryan’s dad decided to record the interaction on his phone. “I’m watching a miracle in action,” he said to a friend in the video.

Ryan’s sister, Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi, later posted the video on Facebook and expressed her gratitude for Taylor’s actions.

This is where it gets incredible.

The post went viral, and Awosaibi eventually updated it to include a GoFundMe account they’d created for Taylor, who they learned loved math and wanted to be a teacher, but had yet to attend college.

In a few short days, with donations from across the planet, they raised $100,000 for the young man.

Update: Someone has generously set up a gofundme for Jack Ryan as well. So grateful…

Not only did they reach this incredible goal, but GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne told Fox News last week it was their top campaign at the moment.

“Donors from Baton Rouge to Bangkok have been inspired by Jordan and Jack Ryan’s story. Nearly 3,000 people have donated $100,000 from all across the US and all around the world,” he said.

“Donors from Japan to Germany, from Ireland to Italy, have stepped up and taken action to show their support.”

What a beautiful story, of kindness both simple and great.

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

on

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…
