Jamario Howard

A man from Lincoln, Alabama, shared a wonderful story on Facebook after he and his friends noticed an elderly woman who was eating alone in a restaurant.

This is what Jamario Howard wrote.

“So tonight JaMychol Baker, Tae Knight and myself went out to eat at this place called Brads in Oxford, and after us sitting there a while waiting on our food I noticed an elderly woman sitting alone.

My exact thoughts was ‘dang I’d hate to have to eat alone’.

So after thinking about it a minute I walked over to her and asked if I could sit with her. She said yes and we talked for a minute and after a while of talking she told me she lost her husband and that tomorrow would have been their 60th anniversary.

After learning about how much heavy metal music soothes and comforted his son, Richard McDeid decided to take his son with cerebral palsy to a lot of heavy metal concerts. And when I say a lot, I mean more than 1,200 shows.

Richard’s son, Mason, has loved heavy metal music since he was a toddler. When Mason was a baby, his dad said in an interview, all he did was cry — until Richard put on a Metallica music video. Then, the crying stopped.

“Afterwards, it started happening in the car whenever Metallica was on,” Richard said in an interview. “He would calm down and relax. At first it was only Metallica and then grew to other bands.”

Margarita, a devoted animal lover from Merida, Yucatan, was adored for her kind nature and generosity.

Every morning, a gaggle of stray animals would appear at her front door waiting for her to feed them. She even took a bag of food with her everywhere she went in order to feed all of the stray animals she met along her way.

Margarita passed away last month after battling illness, but her kindness in life didn’t go unnoticed. Family members knew Margarita was a devoted animal lover but they were nonetheless shocked when one bird and a group of stray dogs arrived to honor Margarita at her funeral on March 15.

This Man Drives Hours Every Day To Provide Water To Thirsty Wild Animals In Drought

Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua water trucks for animals

Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park is rich in wildlife, however, the land has been left dry and hot due to lack of rain over the past few years.

Hundreds of animals have perished due to thirst and heat but there’s not much that the wildlife service is doing about it. But one man took matters into his own hands and he is determined to ensure that these wild animals are given enough drinking water to stay cool.

To help these animals, Mwalua rented a truck. Now, he drives for hours every single day to transport water to several areas in the national park.“Last night, I found 500 buffalo waiting at the water hole,” he said. “When I arrived they could smell the water. The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us.”
