Boy Calls 911 And Says He Wants To Run Away. Then Cop Sees Something Strange

When this 13-year-old Cameron Simmons called an officer to say he was going to run away from home, the cop decided to step in. Officer Gaetano Acerra went to meet Simmons to see what happened. When the cop looked into his room he was shocked – no bed, just a deflated air mattress that gave him back pain. Apparently, his mother had fallen into financial difficulties since moving from Texas to care for a sick relative. So a few weeks later he returned with a real bed, a desk, a chair, a television, and a Nintendo Wii for Cameron. “My heart went out for him… I didn’t do this for publicity… I did it because I could. It was the right thing to do and I think people should do things like this” Police in the US often seem to get a lot of bad press, but this story goes to show that many cops are going above and beyond the call of duty in order to serve and protect.

Transgender Man Shares Incredible Before & After Progress Photos, Loses His Friends And Family

This is Jaimie Wilson, a 21-year-old transgender man and country musician from Florida In 2015, Jaimie made the brave decision to transition from female to male, in the face of countless obstacles “When I came out, people refused to believe I was a man because of how “feminine” I presented for 18 years” Wilson said. He started by cutting his hair and wearing men’s clothes, then progressed to testosterone treatment. After 2 years of hard work, Jaimie transformed himself into the man he’s always been at heart. “I’ve lost my family and most of my friends since I started my transition but in the process I’ve found out who really cares about me” he added. Ironically, he’s been accused of being ‘too masculine’ and “trying too hard to be like a cisgendered male” His response on Instagram, where he now has over 394K followers, sent out a powerful message. Jaimie is shutting down stereotypes, and his self-confidence is absolutely infectious! You can follow Jamie on Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/tboy61915/

Family Dog Goes To Visit His Owner's Grave, But What He Does There Brings Everyone To Tears

Dogs have been called man’s best friend. If you have a dog, you will agree this is very true. It never ceases to amaze me how excited my dog is to see me. Even if I just set out to get the mail, I am always greeted enthusiastically! Merriam-Webster defines the word loyal as being faithful to someone else or to an institution. Dogs naturally want to bond with a group; they are social animals. So, dogs will instinctively show loyalty to humans so they can be members of our pack. We also know that dogs are a great judge of character if a dog meets someone they feel is a threat, they let everyone know! One the other hand dogs can tell which person in the room is friendly and will gravitate towards them. Zozo is a loyal dog. His owner, a Turkish man, passed away in February 2014.

This Couple Celebrating 65 Years Of Marriage Is The Most Beautiful Thing Ever

Photographer Megan Vaughan wrote: I was gifted with the honor of shooting Ruby and Harold for their 60th wedding anniversary. Five years later, I was gifted again to document their love of 65 years. Harold is the exact same as I remember him. Cutting jokes and always smiling. Sadly, Ruby’s dementia has worsened. She didn’t remember me or the last time we took pictures together. When she greeted me at the door, she wrapped me up in a tight hug… just like you would hug family you hadn’t seen in a long time. I told her I was so excited to see her and she said, ‘Well, I wish I knew why!’ But wow, her personality was just as sassy as ever! It’s so sad to know that she won’t remember me or the wonderful time we had together. But she’ll enjoy looking at the pictures and that’s exactly why a photographer’s job is so important. It’s so amazing to see a long-lasting love like theirs! I believe it should be celebrated, documented, cherished, remembered and something to strive for.

When Rich Holtham got an estimate of £1000 for a new shop floor, he decided he can do better. So instead, he exchanged 700 pounds to 70,000 pennies and covered the whole floor with them. “We wanted a new floor but the cost of getting it done was expensive and we wanted to do something a bit more unusual” Rich said. The whole barber shop crew spent a full week gluing the coins to the ground. In the end, the barber shop got not only the coolest floor in town, but also some free advertising: “Passers-by keep coming into the shop to take a few photos. We have gained a lot of business from it.” Rich added.
