-therapistofturtles A lot of grade-school aged kids may have stayed away from my sister Mary or thought she was weird because she has Downs Syndrome. But not Ben.
He always looked out for her, always made sure to pick her on his team at recess and even made a promise to her in 4th grade to take her to prom someday.
7 years later, he made good on that promise and in the process put a smile on Mary’s face and restored my faith in humanity.
-Police Derry City & Strabane This is Tiernan McCready. This is what a hero looks like. Last week in the Bogside he saw three males grab an 18 year old girl and try to get her in their van.
Most ADULTS would be paralysed in shock, confusion or fear and fail to act till it was too late. Tiernan reacted instantly and shouted at the males and led the girl away to safety. He then told his mum who rang Police. Let that sink in.
I’m so proud of my son, he seen a kid balled up into a corner crying, so he went to console him, grabbed his hand and walked him inside of the school! It is an honor to raise such a loving, compassionate child! He’s a kid with a Big heart, the first day of school started off right.

-Britney Tankersley “Late last night, Myles went on and on about how he had to be twins with a boy in his class for Twin Day because they look exactly the same — same eyes, same hair. He was adamant that they were identical.
So, after the kids went to bed, I headed to Walmart at 9 p.m. to get matching outfits. Their teacher sent me this picture today. My heart melted.
Obviously, they are two very different children, but Myles didn’t see that. Wouldn’t the world be such a better place if we could all view it through the eyes of a couple 5-year-olds.
