ChadMichael Morrisette, a Los Angeles-based brand consultant and visual designer, says he was surprised to receive a message on Facebook earlier this week from the man (name withheld) who helped make his teen years miserable.
The man explained that he’d been inspired to apologize after his young daughter asked if he’d ever bullied anyone.
Morrisette posted the apology on his Facebook page with a note that provided some background:
“During junior high and high school I was bullied for being who I am. I was bullied for being gay. I was bullied for being little. I was bullied for every reason someone is bullied. It was awful. I couldn’t even walk to classes without an adult escort or friends with me.”
The message read:
For the past 10 years, a blind man named Jia Haixia and his friend who is a double amputee, named Jia Wenqi, have been replanting trees in Yeli Village, northeastern China to try and revive the once baron landscape.
Haixia was born blind in on eye and lost sight in the other due to a work related accident. Wenqi also lost both of his arms in an accident at just 3-years-old. The two of them leased 8 acres of land from the government and started planting trees to try and protect their village from flooding.

Meet Komari. At five weeks, she was found abandoned and all alone. Looking hungry and sickly, she needed a new home.
Charlie dog died of cancer 2 weeks ago. Scout kitty loved him more than anything.
The first night I brought her home at 5.5 weeks old, she couldn’t sleep unless she was nestled up to my doggy.
Alek Lisefski is a web designer who decided to take everything we know about building a house and flip it on its head. Instead of going in debt for hundreds of thousands of dollars, he built his own home for the low, low price of $30,000. It’s only 8x20ft, but that’s what makes it awesome. It’s a tiny house, it’s mobile and it looks so cool I would give anything to live in it for a day.
This is Lisefski’s tiny home, which was built on a flatbed trailer. It measures 13 feet and four inches tall, eight feet by six inches wide, and 20 feet long, and can be pulled behind a car.
When this dying dog rescued from the streets of India was originally found he looked like a lost cause, as well as the saddest creature you’ve ever seen. The organization Animal Aid Unlimited came to the dog’s rescue just two-months ago in hopes of saving his life and making it worth living again.
When he was first found on the side of the road, the poor pup was starving, dehydrated, suffering from mange and had not experienced any human contact in a long time. A spokesperson for Animal Aid Unlimited said, “He was so exhausted and inward.”
As soon as the dog arrived at the rescue facility they hooked him up to an IV and began treating his many infections. It took 10 days for the dog’s skin to heal, at which point the real transformation began to take place.
The results of his transformation are unbelievable. To think this is the same dying dog rescued from the streets only two months before is not only shocking but also inspirational.
There has been a recent spike in the sales of IKEA doll beds in Japan. Those innovative and quirky Japanese have re-purposed the $20 Duktig mini-bed to allow their cats and rabbits to get a good night’s sleep.
Officially a toy bed for children’s dolls, it appears to be IKEA’s first (unwitting) foray into the pet furniture market.
The beds come with miniature pillows and blankets, and for those owners with more than one pet, they can be made into bunk beds.
Judging by the positively peaceful, sleepy pets in the pictures below, this is surely the beginning of a ‘beds for pets’ movement.
