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.

What a joke!

Liberals can be summed up with one word: triggered. Everything annoys them to no end, to the point where they feel they need to get violent. We see it happen on nearly a daily basis. Check out what went down when a teenage boy decided to wear a MAGA hat in our nation’s capitol. It didn’t go over well with a random future Joe Biden voter. WATCH: https://twitter.com/charlienicole/status/1279905108289941505?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1279905108289941505%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fhorrible-trump-supporters-in-dc-accosted-and-harassed-by-blm-thug-who-stole-their-maga-hats-video%2F Criminals seemingly don’t have as bad a reputation as police officers. Without question, ex-cop Derek Chauvin was in the wrong when he placed his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. But why are all officers being blamed for one bad apple? It’s not right. Some cops are fed-up. From Miami Herald: The 10 members of the Hallandale Beach Police Department’s SWAT team have stepped down from their roles, citing among other grievances anger over the city’s police chief kneeling with protesters earlier this week, a memo the officers signed read. They will remain with the police department. On Friday morning, Hallandale Beach received a memo from the members of the SWAT team with a list of grievances, Hallandale Beach City Manager Greg Chavarria said. Police Chief Sonia Quiñones has set a meeting with the 10 officers on Monday to hear their concerns, collect their equipment and thank them for their service.

Report: President Trump to Refile Paperwork This Week That Will Rescind DACA Program

A big move…

Like most things nowadays, DACA has long divided conservatives and liberals. On Monday, it was reported that President Trump is set to make a big move later in the week. Here’s the scoop, via The Hill: President Trump is expected to refile paperwork this week to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that offers protections for thousands of young immigrants, according to multiple people familiar with the planning. Trump was initially expected to move to once again rescind the Obama-era program last week, but it was pushed back, according to one source. The exact timing remains in flux, but Trump is now expected to file the paperwork this week. White House chief of staff Mark Meadows hinted in an interview with Fox News earlier Monday that the president was readying executive action on immigration issues, though he did not offer specifics. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts hasn’t been the conservative stalwart Republicans had expected when first nominated by President George W. Bush. Anything but, really. After siding with his liberals peers yet again, GOP Senator Tom Cotton (AR) is telling Roberts he should step aside.
