Athletes Took an Awesome Stand When a Cheerleader With Down Syndrome Was Bullied.

She was bullied but these boys stood up for her. Bless your kind souls.

At some point in our lives, we experienced being bullied and laughed at. When we felt like we don’t belong and we tried so hard to fit in. It could be the end for some but others chose to stand up for what’s right, to speak up and defend themselves or anyone in need just like this very inspiring story of Dee.

Desiree Andrews or ‘Dee’ is one of the cheerleaders at Lincoln Middle School in Kenosha, Wisconsin. She is an eighth grader with down syndrome, trying to live a normal life that she deserves.

During a recent basketball game, Desiree was performing with the Lady Knights’ Cheerleading Squad but was being bullied from the stands. That was when a few players from the basketball team came to her defense as Kenosha News reported.

Desiree’s interest in cheerleading came from the TV show Glee. She said, ‘If she can be a cheeleader, I can be too.’

Some people from the audience were making fun of Dee. During the time out, one member of the team walked up to have a word with them.

He stepped up and said, ‘Don’t mess with her,’ Brandon Morris said, the boys’ basketball coach last year.

Then all of the other players got together to support Dee.

‘It’s not fair when other people get treated wrong because we’re all the same. We’re all created the same. God made us the same way,’  player Scooter Terrien said.

Dee never walks to class alone since then as she’s being accompanied by the boys.

The school gym was even renamed after her. Now they call it D’s House in Dee’s honor.

For their last home game of the season, the team held a D’s House celebration and the players began chanting, ‘Whose house? D’s House!’

‘It’s been a godsend to us,’ her father Cliff Andrews agrees. ‘Those boys, I tried to talk to them in person, but I couldn’t keep the tears back.’

These kids should really be regarded for such a heroic and humbling act. They are great examples of how the youth should be. As for Dee, her courage is an inspiration to everyone to continue fighting and that there is always a special place for someone like her in this world.

They Noticed Something Stuck in a Pipe. When They Took A Closer Look? Poor Puppy…

Puppies are one of the cutest baby animals ever! They give us joy and lots of positivism every time. However, they are also prone to accidents and misadventures, probably because they are so tiny that they can get involved in the most unfitting situations.

In Thailand, an anonymous web user was able to film a rescue operation involving a puppy stuck in an iron pipe. This white puppy of an unknown breed mysteriously ended up inside a small pipe, risking its dear life. Good thing he managed to sick his head out of the pipe for the rescuers to see. The team tried out all possible interventions to get this cute little pup out of the pipe. It is such a heroic act that has left us all in awe. Truly inspiring!

This is how the dog looked like while stuck in the iron pipe. No one knows how it got there but the rescuers are more than willing to save it.

Badass Father Teaches Son a Tough Lesson After Learning He Wants to Join a Gang.

Good job Dad. We need more fathers like you.

Fathers want their kids to have good lives by being honest and responsible citizens. They only want the best, and will do anything to achieve that. But what if a father overhears his son's plan of joining a gang and living the life of a gangster? We thought it would be ridiculous, but we never expected such emotions and profanity like the one in the video below.

In the clip below, the father explained to his son what 'gangbanging' is, and how it is truly like to be a part of a gang. Selling drugs, wasting life, and doing nothing but ridiculousness.

He even forcefully smacked and attacked his son with words of disgust. In the end, the father faced the camera, and challenged anyone who is planning to recruit his son by saying, ...
