Wonderful.

On Thursday of last week, Ian Bousfield, the rowing coach for Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School Rowing Club discovered something unusual and quite unexpected as he arrived for practice at Powell’s Pool located in Birmingham, England.

It was a rose and a note stuck to a chain link fence. The note contained the heartbreaking request of a widow who desperately desired to do something special for her deceased husband, but ran into a bit of a problem.

How this rowing coach responded is just wonderful.

The note read: “Please, can someone throw this into the lake for me? My late-husband’s ashes are in the lake and I can’t get to the lakeside in my wheelchair anymore [and] gates are locked. Have to drive back up north tonight. Thank you.”

Accompanying the note was a full red rose.

The man who found the note, Bishop Vesey’s geography teacher and head of rowing, Ian Bousfield, told The Daily Wire that the note was “wedged into the handle” of the “metal gate that leads to our boathouse.”

Bousfield says he was touched by the request: “It was very heart wrenching when I saw it initially, and I was more than happy to fulfill the person’s wishes.”

“I’m very grateful for everyone’s kind comments on twitter,” he said, adding, “It’s very uplifting, and I have read them all.”

Here are some of the Twitter responses the picture and tweet have received:

The tweet has now received over 153,000 likes and has been retweeted more than 43,000 times with 1,300 replies. While the person has yet to be identified, there’s little doubt that whoever she is, she’s probably well aware of the kindness of this stranger who went out of his way to help her honor her husband’s memory.

Bill O’Reilly Brilliantly Explains Why 2020 Election Doesn’t Make Much Sense (Video)

You probably won’t find a better summarization.

Bill O’Reilly may not be a perfect person. But that is to be expected, considering he’s human. That being said, the man is very intelligent and well-informed (and his Killing series is just plain awesome). On Monday, Bill explained why the 2020 presidential election seems so funky to so many millions of Americans. Did you know, as O’Reilly points out, that no president in 150 years has lost a second term when they nabbed more votes than they did the first time around? Trump earned over 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016, but somehow he’s the one who can’t keep up with the trend – despite the massive rallies, both scheduled and impromptu, all over the nation??

There’s zero chance Joe Biden outperformed President Trump to the tune of 80 million total votes. Come on, man! The GOP needs to get to the bottom of this or risk going extinct.

GOP Senator Says Biden’s Pick for OMB, Neera Tanden, Has ‘Zero Chance of Being Confirmed’

Buh bye.

It is absolutely imperative that Republicans retain control of the Senate. Both upper chamber races in Georgia have the ability to make or break the country. Loeffler and Perdue must win. If they don’t, Democrats will have the House, Senate, and, possibly, the Executive Branch. If that happens, things will change fast – and not in a good way. From The Daily Wire: On Monday, former Vice President Joe Biden announced he had selected Neera Tanden, the president of The Center for American Progress and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as his choice to head the White House Office of Management and Budget, eliciting criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Sen. John Cornyn, (R-TX) said Tanden “stands zero chance of being confirmed.” […] Tandem has also come under fire for her handling of sexual harassment claims at the Center for American Progress. Buzzfeed News reported in 2018 that two days after they had revealed allegations of sexual harassment and retaliation at the Center for American Progress, where Tanden served as president, Tanden “met with staff to restore confidence in the organization’s ability to handle the issue and ensure that employees feel safe. But during the meeting Wednesday afternoon, Tanden named the anonymous victim at the center that story — a revelation that a CAP spokesperson said was unintentional — and what began as a tense meeting became what three staffers in the room described as a textbook example of the organization’s failures to appropriately handle sexual harassment cases.” Check out some of these tweets… https://twitter.com/GarrettVentry/status/1333250823531470855?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1333250823531470855%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/802605607081615360?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E802605607081615360%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration https://twitter.com/neeratanden/status/959471674528878593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E959471674528878593%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fso-much-for-unity-tom-cotton-rips-bidens-picks-to-staff-administration
