Debbie and Shaun Riddle eat at West Side Cafe in Fort Worth, Texas pretty regularly.
They hadn’t stopped by in over a month, however, so they were a little surprised when their server, Kayla Lane, remembered them when they stopped in for a bite to eat recently.
They made small talk, and Kayla asked about their infant daughter Glory, who she recalled seeing during their last visit…

But she didn’t realize that, sadly, Glory had passed away in her sleep from an unknown cause only a few short weeks ago.
And when the grieving parents told her what had happened, she felt terrible, she told CBS:
I’m like, ‘Oh gosh, I made them remember!’ even though it’s going through their minds all day, every day.
Determined to do something for the family to make up for her faux-pas, Kayla did the only thing she could think of: she picked up their check.
After his experience with homelessness, one boy learned how to sew in order to make clothes and give back to other children in need. Amazing!
There are two sides to every story, and no one should know that better than those in a professional position of authority and safety, like those who protect and serve on the police force.
But all that is called into question in Baltimore after a retired police officer and marine opened up about the rampant abuse he alleges occurred throughout his 11 years on the force before a shoulder injury forced him to retire.
This summer, down on their luck Hawaiians could have an unusual, but brilliant, resource to help them get back on their feet.
Like any sane person, Mark Mravic, Assistant Managing Editor of Sports Illustrated thinks that women’s soccer is awesome. But he’d heard that his colleague, Andy Benoit, who covers the NFL for Sports Illustrated disagrees…
Then Andy decided to clarify: it’s not just women’s soccer that isn’t worth his precious time — it’s all women’s sports. Because that’s so much better!
Well, Andy, Seth Myers and Amy Poehler have a question for you…
Benoit’s tweets have, predictably, since been deleted. But that doesn’t mean the internet has forgotten them…
Anonymous Kid Talked About All His Classmates Online. They Finally Found Out Who He Was at Graduation
Konner Sauve knows high school students can be brutally honest with one another.
So the recent graduate and valedictorian of East Valley High School in Washington decided to chime in, under the guise of a secret Instagram account.
But not in the way you’re thinking…
The life of a circus animal is often unfulfilled; constantly on the move, they are confined to metal cages, away from their own kind, and more often than not, are abused.
But for Will, a 13-year-old lion who spent his entire life in a Brazilian traveling circus, all that is about to come to a glorious end.
Watch him feel the grass under his paws for the first time ever…
Will was rescued by the Rancho dos Gnomos Santuário (the Ecological Sanctuary Association – Rancho dos Gnomos) in São Paulo, Brazil, which has dedicated nearly 25 years to caring for neglected and abandoned domestic and wild animals, rescuing them from accidents, abuse, circuses, trafficking and habitat loss.
You’d never know he spend his entire long life in captivity — he sprung out of that cage like a kitten!
You just might find yourself inspired after listening to one woman’s message for little girls with big names…
Flip through any magazine, and you’ll see gorgeous women gracing every page. These celebrities are so beautiful and perfect, you can hardly believe they’re real.
It’s no secret that they’ve had some help to look the way they do — lighting, teams of makeup artists and hair stylists, and of course the fabulous clothes — but it can still set regular women up for unrealistic expectations.
But even with all that help, someone at the top always thinks the images of these women still need to be altered within an inch of their lives. Enter Photoshop…
If you look at the “before” pictures and then the “after” pictures, you can’t always see exactly what changes they made. But then when you see them compared one after the other, the alterations are surprisingly drastic…
A shadowy sculpture turns a little boy into a pile of rotting food, dirty water, weapons, damaged medical equipment, and ammunition in an arresting new video from Human Appeal, an international humanitarian aid charity.
The project, ‘Shine A Light,’ encourages awareness of the horrifying human rights abuses that children face around the world, in the hope that together, we can save them…
