This 911 Dispatcher Steps In After Receiving An Adorable Call From A Little Boy

This turned out to be a more serious problem than Bundy had thought.

While police officers and other first responders deserve every single ounce of credit we give them, and so much more, for their tough, demanding jobs, there’s a member of society we often overlook: the 911 dispatcher.

Acting as the conduit between us in our emergencies and the appropriate first responder who can help us, the dispatcher often hears callers in their most terrified and distraught states and must pin down key details, often through sobs or screams.

Antonia Bundy likely knew exactly what to expect when she became a dispatcher in Lafayette, Indiana, until the day she fielded an unexpected 911 call from a little boy in trouble.

“Hi, um, can you hear me?” the boy said, sounding a little bit nervous to make the call.

Bundy responded in a sweet voice to the child that she can hear him, so the young man sheepishly continued his call.

“Umm, I had a really bad day and I just… I don’t know,” the little guy said, dejectedly.

“You had a bad day at school?” Bundy politely probed for details to determine the boy’s emergency.

“Yeah, I just came to tell you that,” the poor little guy answered.

Upon realizing that the boy’s call was clearly not an emergency, it seems Bundy would have had two options: first, she could scold him for abusing the emergency number, or, she could simply hang up on him and move onto more urgent calls.

However, Bundy’s demeanor and tone toward the boy never once sharpened. The boy had called during a time where the dispatch office was well-staffed and not receiving many other calls, so the kind young lady proceeded with the call and lent the boy a listening ear.

“What happened at school that made you have a bad day?” Bundy asked the child, to which he replied that he had been overburdened with homework in the most dreaded subject of all: math.

Not just any math, mind you. Fractions. This turned out to be a more serious problem than Bundy had thought.

The little boy’s tone actually brightened up significantly, as if he realized that Bundy could have been much less kind than she was, and the pair proceeded to tackle a tricky math problem.

As Bundy guided him through the steps, the boy slowly began to understand the technique for adding fractions and, if you listen closely, you can hear a jolt of excitement in his voice when he solves the problem.

Bundy seemed willing to proceed with more homework help, but the boy thanked her and apologized for calling, but he “really needed help.”

Full of sweetness and class, Bundy simply said, “you’re fine! We’re always here to help.”

This young woman may have a long, challenging career ahead of her as a dispatcher, but here’s hoping she always looks back fondly on this little boy’s call and remembers that she’s doing her part to serve her community well.

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity. It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego. In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country. But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1106407956122263552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1106407956122263552&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F03%2F14%2Freport-good-guy-gun-chased-shot-new-zealand-attackers%2F That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life. It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out. Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project. Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground. But there’s a catch… A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor. Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year. The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job. Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11. The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”. And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
