Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (34)


Quote of the day: 
Love... it surrounds every being and extends slowly to embrace all that shall be. 
-Khalil Gibran

A dad has made it possible for his daughter who has cerebral palsy to play an instrument. Eva Houston, a 14-year-old from Omaha, Nebraska has played the trumpet since a early age, but she has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, which makes it impossible to march in formation with the rest of her bandmates. Eva's dad, Kevin Houston, who works in an insurance company, always leaves the office four days a week, in order to help push his daughter's wheelchair as she plays the trumpet during practice.

A police officer, Deputy Brian Bussell -a 25 year veteran with the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, helped to provide a homeless family -whom he met at the jail lobby, with food and shelter -after noticing something was not quite right with the family -another and her two kids. After making calls to homeless shelters with no luck, he booked them into an hotel for 10 days, and also got them new clothes and food. He did not tell anyone at work about his act of kindness, but the mother took a photo which has since gone viral -and everyone got to find out.

  1. That officer went above and beyond the call of duty. An honorable man.
    And just really cool that father pushes his daughter's wheelchair so she can be in band.

  3. now if the first 2 stories don't move you, there is something wrong with you! why can't more of the militant christians be like this, instead of raving about red cups and gay parents?
