WATCH: 100-Year-Old WWII Veteran Receives Incredible Birthday Card…Grab the Tissues

Published

The day we stop honoring our veterans is the day we lose sight of the cost of liberty. And as long as we still have living WWII veterans, it is of the utmost importance that we honor them as members of the Greatest Generation and victors in the globe’s most devastating and important war thus far.

Issac “Ike” Fabela recently turned 100, and to mark the occasion all he wanted was 100 birthday cards.

Word got out, however, and he ended up with tens of thousands. Even actor Chris Pratt–who regularly gives us more reasons to love him–got in on the action:

Among the 50,000 cards his daughter said he received, however, was a very special card…from the President himself.

Fabela, who served in World War II from 1944 to 1946, was brought to tears by many of the cards he received, according to one of his daughters, which he has spent quite a bit of time reading.

“He can’t believe what some of these people have written,” daughter Lolie told Fox News.

When Fabela read the birthday card from the White House, however, Lolie managed to capture it on camera. As he read the incredibly powerful words from POTUS, who recognized just how important the century Fabela has lived means to our nation’s history, the elderly man is clearly moved.

I dare you not to cry:

When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c0YlhgUNFU These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. https://twitter.com/cwwaters/status/1127678279740268545 https://twitter.com/MaireCervenak/status/1127533108130189313 https://twitter.com/pg21707/status/1127477442157871105 Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled. https://twitter.com/immellocker/status/1127492640293957633

VIDEO: Cancer Survivor’s First Pitch Ended Up a Low Blow

While the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way.

One of the most wince-inducing first pitches ever occurred at Fenway this week. It wasn’t wince-inducing because it was a bad pitch, per se. It was wince-inducing for where it ended up. Jordan Leandre was invited to throw out the first pitch during Wednesday’s Boston Red Sox-St. Louis Cardinals game at Fenway Park because he is a 17-year-old cancer survivor. Clearly he wasn’t invited for his baseball skills. The teen stepped up to the mound and wound up to let loose a bit of a wild throw toward home plate if not exactly AT home plate. The pitch went high and wide, high enough to fly out of reach for the catcher. But while the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way. Leandre’s pitch nailed Lawrence Eagle photographer Tony Capobianco right in the worst place possible. This video is not to be missed: Wowie. Leandre’s face after the disastrous throw says it all.
