Teacher Shocked to See 7-Year-Old Student Riding Bike on the Highway. Then She Found Out Where He Was Going.

If you spend a lot of time as the sole caretaker for small children, it has likely occurred to you more than once what your children would do if you for one reason or another became incapacitated.

Would they know how to call 911? Would they know how to find a neighbor to come help? Or the most dreadful question of all…could they end up in harm’s way somehow themselves?

A little boy in South Carolina is being praised after his bold actions when he came home to discover his father in a diabetic shock. However, he put himself in a rather dangerous situation in order to try to find his father help.

Yahoo News reports:

Cameron Simoncic told his local TV station WSPA that he had returned home from a day of second grade on Wednesday when he found his father on the kitchen floor, unconscious from diabetic shock, and knew that he needed to take immediate action.

“My dad has diabetes,” the second-grader told the local Carolina outlet, “and whenever he has these episodes and whenever it happens, his brain can’t function.”

Cameron went to dial 911 on his father’s phone, but said he was locked out of his dad’s cell. And when the little boy went over to his neighbors’ houses, nobody was home.

“So I got on my bike and tried to ride to my grandma’s,” Cameron explained.

As he was dodging cars on the 5-mile ride, his first-grade teacher, Keller Sutherland, hadn’t recognized the familiar face before deciding that she needed to pull over.

“I just told my husband, I said, ‘There’s a small child on his bicycle riding down the road. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I feel like I need to just turn around and see what’s going on,’” Sutherland told WSPA.

To her surprise, the little boy was her former first-grade student. Cameron quickly told the teacher what was happening at home and Sutherland helped him remain calm, while another two men who pulled over called 911.

Sutherland says she has no doubt she was placed in her student’s path at just the right time, and thank God she was!

“There’s no doubt that God placed me where he did when he needed me,” she said.

Amen to that—what a blessing, and bless this sweet boy for being so brave!

Rhino Poacher Meets a Poetic Fate, Complete with Elephants, Lions, and Revenge

If this isn’t justice, I don’t know what is.

Greed is a hell of a drug. Greed is what makes a wealthy man and addicted man.  It’s the idea that you can never have enough, no matter the consequences to the world around you. Don’t get me wrong: Winning and achieving are great, but there are costs to be considered. For wildlife poachers, the reward is dirty money…and lots of it.  Items such as rhinoceros horns can go for as much as $60k per kilo – an amount that makes cocaine look like over-the-counter DayQuil in comparison. Of course, the reason for this enormous price tag is the rarity of the item, with poachers having nearly caused the extinction of several species of Rhinoceros over the course of the last few decades. But, as Jeff Goldblum famously says in the 90’s blockbuster Jurassic Park, “life finds a way”. One poacher in Africa has learned that lesson the very hard way. Only a skull and a pair of trousers remained after a suspected rhino poacher was killed by an elephant and then eaten by lions in Kruger National Park, South African National Parks said. The incident happened after the man entered the park with four others to target rhinos, according to a parks service statement released Friday. His family were notified of his death late Tuesday by his fellow poachers, and a search party led by Kruger’s regional manager, Don English, set out to recover the body. Rangers scoured on foot and police flew over the area, but due to failing light, it could not be found. The poacher likely didn’t deserve such dignity, but the search went on. The search resumed Thursday morning and, with the help of added field rangers, what was left of his body was discovered. “Indications found at the scene suggested that a pride of lions had devoured…

Police Seek Teens who Interacted with Autistic Skateboarder for BEST REASON EVER

Police are searching for a few teens that left the mother of an autistic child in tears at a local skatepark…but for all the right reasons.

Life is ostensibly difficult for teens and young adults in ways that many of us adults seem to have forgotten. Hopefully, (and luckily, if so), we grow out of these hormonal adolescent years with a bit of an even keel, able to keep a cool head, and fully aware of our strengths and weaknesses.  Sure, we have bills and the complexities of work/friend/partner relationships to navigate, as well as a whole glut of strange, “as you get older” family issues to deal with, but we at least get to do so as adults with a full understanding of our faculties and abilities. For teens and young people, it’s not that easy.  At these ages, human beings are insecure, unsure, and downright dumbfounded by the world around them.  And, let’s not forget, that kids can be severely cruel to one another over the most asinine of subjects.  Style, mannerisms, and intelligence are all fodder for the teenaged bullies of the world. For children on the autism spectrum, things are even tougher.  These are the “weirdoes” and “nut jobs” that the heartless bullies rail on, making them the bread and butter of these jerks’ daily dissing. So when the mother of an autistic son named Carter began crying at a local New Jersey skatepark, many feared the worst. Lucky for all of us, there is still some good left in this world. Kristen Braconi took Carter, who is on the autism spectrum and has ADHD, and his behavioral therapist to the park to celebrate his fifth birthday, where a group of older kids noticed him playing on his scooter. The teens took it upon themselves to teach Carter how to skateboard. “They were absolutely amazing with him and included him and were so beyond kind it brought me to tears,” the mother shared on Facebook,…
