Last fall, five fifth-graders at a school in Mankato, Minnesota noticed a kid with special needs getting picked on at recess. His name is James Willmert. And they did more than stick up for him. They went WAY above and beyond. Their names are Gus Gartzke, Tyler Jones, Jake Burgess, Landon Kopischke, and Jack Pemble. […]
I wasn’t sure where this ad was going, but it has a pretty powerful message. Yep, I teared up.

He told her he didn’t have a date, and wasn’t into the whole prom thing anyway. But she said he HAD to go, and […]
A video of a 29-year-old Army captain named Sarah Cudd is all over Facebook right now. She was doing a training exercise last month at Fort Dix in New Jersey, and had three hours to walk 12 miles with 35 pounds strapped to her back. (Seriously, I can barely walk through a big mall carrying […]
