When This Man Sold His VCR on eBay, He Never Expected How Much It Would Mean to the Customer



In an era where we can snap a photo, take a video, or make a phone call without thinking twice, it can be very easy to forget that it wasn’t that long ago that it was much more valuable and rare to have footage of special events and dear loved ones.

So when an eBay seller secured a customer for his now-ancient VCR (remember those?) it likely never occurred to him what a blessing it would be to the octogenarian customer.

Matt Shoukry recently took to eBay to sell an old VCR he had laying around his house. When someone bought it, he boxed it up and sent it from St. Louis to Phoenix without thinking twice.

“I don’t even remember where I got the VCR,” Shoukry said. “I think I sold it for about 30 or 40 bucks.”

Shoukry was surprised when a few days after shipping off the VCR, he received a letter with his handwritten address on the envelope. He said he began to read the letter while playing a video game, but after reading the first few lines he had to pause it. Shoukry says he called his girlfriend over in disbelief to come read it with him.

Shoukry said that the letter brought tears to his eyes, and the many Reddit users who read it as well after he shared it on the website said it made them cry as well.

The elderly customer revealed that he had found some old VHS tapes and didn’t know what was on them. So he headed to eBay to find a VCR and was very pleased when it arrived promptly and in good condition, and expressed that he was impressed.

But what came next is truly amazing. The VCR customer, who sweetly shared that, due to his age, he had a little trouble figuring it out at first, discovered what was on those old VHS tapes.

Home videos of priceless memories, many that he didn’t even know existed. Poignantly, he notes, many of the friends and family members in the videos are no longer around.

How amazing!

Here is his letter, and I’m warning you, grab the tissues now!

Single Mom Who Lost Job During Lockdown Gives Lottery Winnings To Cop Shot In The Line Of Duty



With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

Craft Beer Customers Leave Unopened Can of Pale Ale on Bar for Fallen Soldiers

The gesture did not go unnoticed.



craft beer

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
