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

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.

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
