Teacher Kicks Out Daughter With Shaved Head. But When Mom Turns On The Computer Gets Shocked!

Kamryn Renfro is 9 years old, but her wisdom goes well beyond her age. The little girl from Grand Junction, CO, did something brave. She shaved her hair off to support her friend, Delany Campbell, who has cancer.

“It felt like the right thing to do,” Kamryn told the NY Daily News.

Delany, 11 years old, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma and had to undergo chemotherapy. She lost all of her hair twice due to her treatments. When Kamryn shaved her head, too, it made her feel good.

“It made me feel very special and that I’m not alone,” Delany said.

You’d think the adults in her life would praise Kamryn and Delaney for their unbreakable bond, courage, and solidarity. However, that wasn’t the case. When Kamryn returned to school, Caprock Academy, she was turned away. Teachers told her, “Don’t come back until you have hair.”

Schools have some absurd policies. This student was kicked out of prom for wearing a perfectly ordinary dress.

Delany’s mother, Wendy Campbell, was dismayed by the school’s reaction. The mother shared her story on social media, where it quickly went viral. After hundreds showed their support for Kamryn, the school decided to let her return to school and praised the girl’s dedication to her friend!

“For a little girl to be really brave and want to shave her head in support of her friend, I thought that was a huge statement, and it builds character in a child,” Wendy said.

See Kamryn and Delany’s story below, and SHARE if you’re glad the school had a change of heart!

Ex Husband Gave Her Three Days To Move Out.But What She Did Next Was Brilliant!

After 37 years of marriage, Jake dumped his wife, Edith, for his younger, perkier secretary (really breaking new ground here, Copernicus!).

His new girlfriend (we’ll call her Karen) demanded that they live in Jake and Edith’s multi-million dollar home. Since Jake had better lawyers, he prevailed. He gave Edith, his now ex-wife, just three days to move out.

Artists’ rendition of how she felt in that moment.

She spent the first day packing her belongings into boxes and crates.

I imagine more than a few bags looked a little something like this…

On the second day, she had the movers come and collect her things (alcohol).

They came HIGHLY recommended!

On the third day, Edith sat down for the last time at their beautiful dining room table by candlelight.

She put on some soft background music and feasted on a pound of shrimp, a jar of caviar and an entire bottle of chardonnay, rescued from one of her bags!

And in that moment, much like the Grinch, she had an idea. A wonderful, AWFUL idea!

The Open Letter To The Girl Who Let The Nice Guy Go

At some point in our lives, each and every one of us experiences the bitter sting of heartbreak. While it always seems insurmountable in the moment, time has a way of healing the wound… or at least taking the edge off.

The open letter below was written by a woman who was tired of seeing the “nice guys” get away from the very girls that need them the most. Her reasoning is one we all need to pay attention to, nice guys, flighty girls, and all of us in between.

Dear Girl Who Walked Away,

It’s not like you weren’t aware of what you were getting yourself into. He told you he was nice. He trusted easily and gave you all he could when he could.

The nice guy believes in doing things right. He was there when you needed him to be, and he went out of his way to make sure you knew just how much you could mean to someone.

We live in a generation where we all have to wear masks and play parts to make it through the battlefield of dating in the 21st century. There is no such thing as giving it your all.

We like quotes on Facebook and post things on Instagram stating we want the masochist one day and the romantic the next. We play these games where being available can only happen sometimes, and playing hard-to-get must be our number one priority. Why?

I thought the ultimate goal was to eventually settle down. I mean, what is the point of dating if you have no desire for it to go anywhere? If a one-night stand is what you’re looking for, leave the good guys alone and toy within the levels you lay down.

Save yourself time and energy because the good guy isn’t going to make it easy to just walk away. The good guy cares, so he’ll get his explanation from you even though he knows it’ll be a load of bull.

Every girl says she likes the jerk because he’s the challenge — the one she must break, train and force to be more than just his nature. Have you ever thought, however, maybe you were the girl in need of learning what it means to actually feel again?

You went through something, like we all do, and because of it you changed. It’s normal and heartbreak happens, but the next jerk didn’t fix what the first one did; he kept it the same or made it worse. His priority was not you and couldn’t be you. So now you’re bitter and closed off from anything remotely more satisfying than a one-night stand.

I won’t deny that the jerk is fun or that a good time isn’t promised with him, but when it’s all said and done, is it ever more than just a good time? Probably not.

In fact, the jerk has a charm about him; it’s the charm you justify your pursuit with. You say, “There’s just something about him.” However, it’s probably the same quality that ended up hurting you in the past.

So you tried to push the nice guy away. When he wouldn’t go away, you pushed harder. Still, he didn’t give up and every time you pushed harder, he pulled you in even more.

He ignored your fears and forced you to grow; he fought for your passions when you were too busy writing them off. He forgot your wants and focused on everything you needed. Then you walked away because he was too nice.

He gave you too much of everything you wanted, and life got too easy. You wanted conflict and hardship as if everything else in life did not promise you an endless journey of just that. This is where you failed.

The nice guy has been hurt, too, he just chose to stay nice. He learned that different people were going to provide him different things in life. The nice guy also chose not to let any of it change who he was.

So, he let you walk away and he called it a day. Everyone always says there are plenty of fish in the sea, and he let you go knowing this, even though it hurt.

What you don’t know is that someone else is out there, and she won’t be as foolish you. When you realize all you really want is the nice guy who cares about you too much, it’s going to be too late. Some other girl will be able to see how great he is, and she won’t waste a minute.

So you lost your Ted Mosby and, I promise, to him you were Robin. The nice guys are there to give you a break, a light to something more than the games we identify our generation with.

He may have loved you too soon and it was too crazy and too much, but guys like Mosby don’t happen every day; they happen never. He got you the blue French horn, and he made you feel love when love was no longer a part of your vocabulary. You were now saying “I love you” again and remembering what it felt like.

He was the guy you were supposed to end up with, who makes everything change. I just wish you’d see it before another girl does because at the end of the day, everyone, including the nice guy you don’t deserve, is rooting only for you.

Sincerely, The Girl Who Was Too Late

Even if you feel you’ve missed your chance, it’s never too late to start again.

Share and spread some perspective.

 

Construction Worker Hides Waldo On Site Everyday For Kids In Hospital Next Door To Find

A thoughtful construction worker named Jason Haney thought it would be nice to do something to cheer up the children in the hospital next door. His idea was absolutely brilliant.

Haney, with the help of his daughter, created an 8-foot-tall cut out of Where’s Waldo and hides it on the site every day for the kids in the Memorial Children’s Hospital in South Bend, Indiana to spot. Once Haney is notified that the kids found Waldo, the large cut-out is moved to a different spot, and the kids look for it again. Haney has even created a Facebook group for the kids to post their finds! The best part? Haney and his daughter are already working on cut-out “Minions” for his next project!

Cashier Judged Her Because Of Her Hair Color. Her Comeback Left The Cashier Stunned.

Nothing that matters about you, or about anyone of us really, can be determined by a brief visual examination. You can’t see what is most important in a person.

A woman comented :

I am a nurse also and the different hospitals I worked at always stated we needed to look professional at all times. You are right, everyone should be able to define how they want to look to others without snide or unkind comments, but I also have to say that I have never worked at a hospital that would let me come to work with patients while showing multiple tattoos,piercings, or hair deemed unconventional. These types of things are always commented on in the paperwork you sign when you first start a new job. You are lucky you work at a hospital that is flouting convention and allowing personalities to show through. Patients should receive the same wonderful care no matter what your convictions are!!

Man Is Shocked To See This Woman In College. What Followed Next Is Priceless.

An elderly woman had a few words of wisdom to share with her college class–which should surprise you, because what’s she doing in a college class?

The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned round to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a smile that lit up her entire being. She said, “Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?”

I laughed and enthusiastically responded, “Of course you may!” and she gave me a giant squeeze.

“Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?” I asked.

She jokingly replied, “I’m here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids…”

“No seriously,” I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.

“I always dreamed of having a college education and now I’m getting one!” she told me.

After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate milkshake.We became instant friends. Every day for the next three months, we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this “time machine” as she shared her wisdom and experience with me.

Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made friends wherever she went. She loved to dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I’ll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor.
Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said, “I’m sorry I’m so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I’ll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.”

She Was Stunned When Women Ridiculed And Shamed Her For Having Her Daughter On A Leash. The Mom‘s Reply Is Genius.

Who cares what these stupid people say. Most of them probably don’t even have kids. You keep it up and do what you have to , to make sure your children stay safe.

FOllowingIMGDSifygu

My son had the brown monkey and my daughter a pink poodle, People looked at me like I was ridiculous but my kids at ages 3 and 4 were too big to be in a double stroller and they would take off into the street or run ahead or even go with a stranger in a crowded place, sorry but I wasn‘t going to misplace my child in a crowded place or have them get injured either. The kids loved them, thought it was cool having an animal on their backs.

Passengers Were Bored In An Airport, Until WWII Vet Decided To Lighten Up The Mood!

What do you get when you combine a delayed flight and a group of WWII vets who know how to groove? Pure brilliance.

During a layover at the Reagan International Airport in Washington, onlookers captured what may be the best impromptu grandpa dance ever! The performance actually started with three women entertaining passengers by singing The Andrews Sisters’s “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.” Out of nowhere emerged a sweet old man with some fancy moves… and he was ready to show them off for the crowd.

Then, out of nowhere, emerged a sweet old man. He was acting like he had a hurt back and couldn’t move well… but it was all part of his show.

I knew it was gonna be good when he refused to pick up his cane and he started doing his own “jig”. It’s a priceless moment that is sure to have made the delayed flight much more enjoyable for all!

This video reminds me of the senior Barber Shop Quartet that showed off their serious talent to plane passengers before takeoff. It’s always amazing to find elderly folks full of so much joy!

Check out his silky smooth moves in the video below!

School Refuses To Serve Son School Lunch. Then Mom Marches Down There And Surprises Them!

Dominic Gant is a high school junior. When he was getting lunch in the school cafeteria, he was flabbergasted and humiliated when the cafeteria lady took the tray out of his hands and threw it away. The reason? Dominic apparently owed less than $5 for previously unpaid school lunches.

“It was really embarrassing,” Dominic told CNN. “Right in front of the whole lunch room, they took my plate away and said I didn’t have enough to eat today.”

His mother, Amanda Keown, could not believe her son was denied a meal because he owed less than $5. We’ve seen lunch ladies who fed kids who couldn’t afford it get fired before, and yet, the issue prevails every day in our schools. It’s one thing to let a student know their tab is accumulating. It’s another to throw away a perfectly good meal, humiliate him in front of his peers, and then send him to class hungry.

“I was appalled that he was denied lunch and his lunch was taken out of his hands over $5,” she said.

So, Keown marched down to the school, and she left everyone stunned. She paid her son’s debt and every other student’s debt. She paid off the $200 because she didn’t want any other kid to go through what her son went through. She didn’t want any other student to go hungry or feel embarrassed because their parents don’t have the money. Now, if only the school felt as strongly about the issue as Keown did!

Homeless Guy Approached Girl Playing Pokemon, But He Was Stunned When She Did Something So Simple.

A young woman named Kimberly was enjoying her lunch break, playing Pokemon Go, when she was approached by a homeless man on the street. The older gentleman, named Daniel, had simply noticed her walking about, aimlessly looking at her phone and thought she may need help with directions.

After explaining the game to him and showing him how to catch Pokemon, Daniel had a good laugh. As she turned to leave, the homeless man asked her for some food… what happened next is something we all need to pay attention to.

“While out catching Pokemon in Atlanta I was approached by a frail looking older man on a worn out bicycle, I know I must have appeared lost looking at my phone screen and walking around trying to find a specific Pokemon near me and he asked if I needed help getting anywhere and I told him ‘No, I’m just playing a game called Pokemon Go.’ He went on to ask what a Pokemon Go was and I proceeded to show him and a wild Pidgey showed up and I was even able to show him how to catch it and how it shows up on the camera so it looks like it’s in the real world and he smiled and laughed and chatted with me about how he was wondering what all these young people walking around with their phones doing funny things were doing.

He then thanked me for being so kind and walking and talking with him instead of pretending he doesn’t exist like he had shared with me is what most people do whenever he tries to have conversations with people or tried to offer directions like he did me. for a little bit. Well I was already on my way to grab dinner at the Deli near Centennial Olympic Park and he looked sad all of a sudden and said ‘I dont want you to think I’m trying to beg for money or anything like that like I know a lot of people ask for that and go buy alcohol or cigarettes but I don’t smoke, I’d really just like something to eat ma’am. Is there any way you could help me out? Anything would be appreciated. I’ll even stand right outside wherever you go in because I don’t want you to give me money and never know where it goes to.’

Since I was just going to get myself some pasta salad I went ahead and ordered a whole meal that came with pasta salad as a side and I just kept the side for myself and handed him the rest of food I had ordered for him and with a tear in his eye he asked politely if he could give me a hug and I replied ‘of course! I would love to give you a hug sir, may I get a photo with you in return?’ He smiled and gave me a hug and we took a photo. As I turned to walk back to the park where my dad was at work in the Repicci’s trailer he said ‘Miss Kimberly (I still had on my work name badge) my name is Daniel Wise, I am a Vietnam Veteren and from the bottom of my heart I would like to thank you for the kindness you showed me today and letting me see that there are still young people like you out there who do selfless things like this in a world that often turns its back on old men like me and pretends we don’t exist.’

While it broke my heart to know he is more than often ignored and treated like he isn’t even human, it warmed my heart to help him get a meal in his belly tonight and lift his spirits with a simple conversation while walking down the street.” ❤️

You never know when you’ll have the chance to do something beautiful for somebody else. This lone veteran had been ignored and pushed to the side, but a moment of human kindness from a stranger restored his faith in humanity.

Share and inspire acts of kindness!
