In Utah, Jeannine Cherilynn Isom is a mother, not a dentist, but, she decided that her seven-year-old son needed to have some teeth extracted. Why, we don’t know, again, she isn’t a dentist. But, Isom took her son to a Walmart bought a pair of needle nose pliers and a hand sanitizer.
Isom then took her son into the bathroom and plucked out two of his teeth – in the bathroom at a Walmart! Police Sgt. Cameron Paul said that Isom removed her son’s two front teeth. Isom’s older son heard his younger brother scream and ran for help. The boy didn’t get an anesthesia, and his teeth came out in pieces!

Can you imagine the pain and agony he endured?! The police say this was a clear case of child abuse, and we couldn’t agree more.
Photojournalist GMB Akash is touching many people around the world right now, thanks to a special post he wrote on Facebook.
In it, he tells the story of a poor father who works hard every day for his children to go to school. Something he himself never had the opportunity to do.
The dad, named Idris, says: “I never told my children what my job was. I never wanted them to feel ashamed because of me. When my youngest daughter asked me what I did, I used to tell her hesitantly that I was a labourer.”
But this was far from the truth.
Here’s the dad’s story:
Facebook/GMBAkash I never told my children what my job was. I never wanted them to feel ashamed because of me. When my youngest daughter asked me what I did, I used to tell her hesitantly that I was a labourer.
Before I went back home every day, I used to take bath in public toilets so they did not get any hint of the work I was doing. I wanted to send my daughters to school, to educate them. I wanted them to stand in front of people with dignity. I never wanted anyone to look down upon them like how everyone did to me. People always humiliated me.
I invested every penny of my earnings for my daughters’ education. I never bought a new shirt, instead used the money for buying books for them. Pixabay / ludi Respect, which is all I wanted them to earn for me. I was a cleaner.
The day before the last date of my daughter’s college admission, I could not manage to get her admission fees. I could not work that day. I was sitting beside the rubbish, trying hard to hide my tears.
All my coworkers were looking at me but no one came to speak to me. I had failed and felt heartbroken. Shutterstock / wolfness72 I had no idea how to face my daughter who would ask me about the admission fees once I got back home.
I am born poor. I believed nothing good can happen to a poor person. After work all the cleaners came to me, sat beside and asked if I considered them as brothers. Before I could answer, they handed me their one day’s income.
When I tried to refuse everyone; they confronted by saying, ‘We will starve today if needed but your daughter has to go to college.’
I couldn’t reply them. That day I did not take a shower, I went back to my house like a cleaner.
My daughter is going to finish her University very soon. Three of them do not let me go to work anymore. She has a part-time job and three of them do tuition. But often she takes me to my working place. Feeds all my coworkers along with me.
They laugh and ask her why she feeds them so often. My daughter told them, ‘All of you starved for me that day so I can become what I am today, pray for me that I can feed you all, every day.’
Nowadays I don’t feel like I am a poor man. Whoever has such children, how can he be poor!
We sometimes forget the sacrifices our parents make for us. This dad has done so much for his daughters all out of pure, unconditional love for them.
I hope that our loving parents — and this dad — get the thanks and recognition that they deserve.

A married couple is traveling to visit family by car. Being seniors, after almost eleven hours on the road, they were too tired to continue and decided to get a room. They only planned to sleep for four hours and then get back on the road.
When they checked out four hours later, the desk clerk handed them a bill for $350.00. The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so high. He told the clerk although it’s a nice hotel the rooms certainly aren’t worth $350.00 for four hours. Then the clerk tells him that $350.00 is the ‘standard rate’. He insisted on speaking to the Manager.
The Manager appears, listens to him, and then explains that the hotel has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center that were available for us to use.
“But we didn’t use them” the husband said.
“Well, they are here, and you could have,” explained the Manager. The Manager went on to explain that the couple could also have taken in one of the shows for which the hotel is famous. “We have the best entertainers from New York, Hollywood , and Las Vegas perform here,” the Manager says.
“But we didn’t go to any of those shows” the husband said.
“Well, we have them, and you could have.” the Manager replied.
No matter what amenity the Manager mentioned, the husband replied, “But we didn’t use it!” The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the husband gave up and agreed to pay.
As he didn’t have the check book, he asked his wife to write the check. She did and gave it to the Manager. The Manager is surprised when he looks at the check. “But ma’am, this is made out for only $50.00.”
“That’s correct. I charged you $300.00 for sleeping with me,” she replied. “But I didn’t ” exclaims the Manager. “Well, too bad, I was here, and you could have.”
Don’t mess with senior citizens…They didn’t get that age by being stupid!

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.
During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.
They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.
Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.
It only takes a minute to read this.
A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.
IDENTIFYING A STROKE
Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR.
Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.
T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.
If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue
NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.
A cardiologist said that if everyone who gets this message shared it with 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.
I have done my part. Will you?

Miriam Lujan, at the time of the shooting, was seven months pregnant and enjoying the concert with two of her friends. She crept up closer to the stage by herself to see Jason Aldean and stood behind Cornwell and her sister Billie Jo LaCount.
When the gunfire started, LaCount covered Lujan’s stomach with a pink backpack the sisters had with them and Cornwell lay on top of her sister and the pregnant woman to protect them both.
“I don’t want my baby to die,” Lujan said. Cornwell replied, “Your baby’s not dying on my watch.”
The women ducked behind a lemonade stand during a lull and eventually escaped through a knocked-down fence without remembering to exchange names.
Months after that awful night, Lujan was scrolling through comments on a Facebook group for Route 91 survivors and found the woman who saved her and her baby’s lives.
“I’m so glad you found me,” Cornwell said. “I’ve been looking.”
The women finally reunited in the Las Vegas Community Healing Garden and Cornwell got to meet the baby who she was able to save.
Cornwell took baby Xander in her arms and the 4-month-old began to cry. In the same way she reassured his mother all those months ago, Cornwell also calmly spoke to the boy.
“Auntie Sue Ann’s got you. You can cry all you want; we are just happy you’re crying,” the woman said.
The retired school bus driver brought little Xander books, a yellow toy school bus and cowboy boots along with other gifts.
“He’s already part of history, and he doesn’t even know it,” Cornwell said. “Out of all the ugly, here’s this child that survived.”
Lujan added, “I want him to remember the good moments. I want him to remember those people that did not make it and to remember that people will help strangers survive. And if anything were to happen similar to him like that, I hope he would be able to do the same.”
Having taken a shot to the head, she naturally required emergency treatment. While in a very critical state, her husband Frank was forced to begin imagining a life without his wife. And things got worse when doctors informed him that he needed to need to decide whether to ‘pull the chord’.
Frank was completely crushed, faced with a truly nightmarish situation.
But one night everything changed. He had a vivid dream — in it, his wife approached him, whispering that “everything will be fine”.
When Frank woke up, his decision was made: He refused to shut down Jovana’s respirator. He would never give up hope for his wife.
“Growing up in the inner city, it was hard,” he said. “It was tough, and a lot of people succumb to the circumstances. So I wanted to be a light for those who don’t believe in dreams or don’t see them being possible or obtainable, you know what I’m saying?”
When he was young, he and his sister were placed into foster care. As a way to cope, Marcio turned to music to give him hope.
He continued to pursue his dreams of singing and went on to compete on American Idol. But soon, he learned his sister was pregnant.
“You know how they say the cycle repeats. It started off with my mother in the system. Then me in the system. And then my sister had a child.”
Due to issues with drugs, his sister could not keep her baby. Police showed up at Donaldson’s door with the baby when he was just one week old.
No greater gift I known then from a child, watch our journey to see how much our love grows this Sunday American Idol abc at 8pm! 🎃
“The police and the social worker came to my home, they brought him and here was this week-old baby,” he said. “They said, ‘You have 10 minutes to decide if you will keep this child or he goes in the system.’”
Knowing he did not want the little boy to face the same things he did growing up in foster care, he adopted his nephew. “I looked at them and I said ‘I’ll take him.’”
“I had no idea what I was doing. But he’s actually a real gift. I know it was the right decision. And he’s changed my life.”
Most people have potatoes in their kitchen. They are one of the most common foods that are easy to make and taste amazing pretty much any way you cook them. The problem is, having them in your house could actually kill you.
A simple mistake made by a family back in 2014 showed us just how dangerous these vegetables could be if not stored properly.
Maria Chelysheva was 8 years old at the time and her family kept their potatoes in the cellar. When they were cooking dinner one night they went to get some potatoes, not knowing they had started to rot. Her father went first and when he didn’t come back her mother went. Her brother went down to check on the parents and when he didn’t come back the grandmother called the neighbors for help.
Before the neighbors arrived she headed down to check on the family and once again did not come back. It sounds like a horror movie, but actually happened to this poor girl.
Because the potatoes had been rotting, the poisonous chemical called glycoalkaloid which is found in potatoes had become more potent. This chemical is not only dangerous to consume, but to inhale.
This little girl was lucky to be alive after she went to go look for her family, but luckily her grandma had left the door open so some of the toxins had dissipated.
If you store potatoes in your home, make sure to check that they aren’t rotting to keep your family safe!
Often times people are reluctant to put their loved ones into hospice care. That might not make sense at first glance. Hospice care is supposed to be trained nurses helping to take care
of elderly patients who aren’t capable of taking care of themselves. That sounds great, right?
Well, there’s frequently horror stories about the elderly being treated poorly, and those stories scare people off of hospice care.
But this video is going to fight against those sad tales. Here’s a hospice care nurse who really cares about his job, and more than that he cares about the elderly people that he works with. You’ve got to watch this!
It is sure to help change your position on hospice care, and it’s certainly putting out a positive image.
Take a look at this video.
