Little Anita was understandably overwhelmed on her first day of preschool in Taiwan, so she turned to her classmate Alston for comfort. Five times he assured her, “You don’t need to worry, I’ll protect you,” as he worked tirelessly to help his new classmate rest easy in a sweet interaction that one of their teachers managed to capture on camera…

The video was reportedly taken three years ago but was only just released after the children graduated from the school and the parents granted their permission.

Veteran moved to tears by $70,000 gift waiting for him when he returns home

Jacinto Bernardo Homecoming

Jacinto Bernardo has been in the Marines for 21 years, and for that whole time he and his family have lived in military housing, relocating every couple years. But last January he and his wife bought a house in preparation for his retirement. Somewhere to finally settle down.

But the house they bought was a fixer-upper to put it nicely. They knew when they bought it that once they were able to move in, it would require a lot of work, but as his wife noted, “We chose it because it was the only thing we can afford.”

For the last several months of Bernardo’s service he and his family have been stationed abroad. During that time, he asked his friend Jeremy Epperson to watch their new home for them until they could come and take residence there and start the major task of rehabbing it.

Epperson did much more than keep an eye on it…

Not wanting his friend to come home to a house in that condition, Epperson gathered donations and volunteers from Bernardo’s new community and arranged to have all the remodeling and updates done — totaling $70,000 — so that when Bernardo and his family arrived, they could move into their dream home instead of the mess they were expecting…

Through tears, Bernardo humbly expressed his gratitude, saying that those who’ve lost their lives or who were unable to come home in one piece are the ones who really deserve this lavish generosity.

Widow saves sidewalk where husband scrawled his love in wet concrete…52 years ago at age 12

June 13, 2014 | No comments

Shortly after a preteen David Hewitt met Sissy at a mutual friend’s “boy-girl party,” he scrawled “David + Sissy” in wet concrete near the Charleston, South Carolina, homes where they lived two doors down from one another. That 12-year-old’s infatuation turned to love over the course of their teens and the two were married less than a decade later.

During their years together, they would occasionally come back to the fateful sidewalk where he first proclaimed his love to her…

Concrete Love Note 2

But sadly, after 38 years of marriage, cancer took David in 2008.

Recently the Hewitts’ daughter noticed construction tape surrounding her family’s favorite sidewalk. She immediately got in touch with City Hall to make sure the memento wasn’t lost. The city allowed her family to cut the block out and movie it to Sissy’s home…

Concrete Love Note

Sissy now has her husband’s first public declaration of love resting on a walkway between her garage and house as a constant reminder of the love they shared for so many years.
