A Soldier Dog was Killed in Combat. Watch What the Baggage Handlers Do with His Casket.

I could hardly see it through the tears.

I have always admired the bond that forms between a man and his K9 partner; a bond established with great trust and loyalty beyond the imaginable. Many of you know that both man and dog dedicate their lives to serve and protect many people. Just imagine the dangers they face everyday.

Unfortunately, whether in the police or military service, hundreds or maybe thousands of K9 officers are killed in action. Some of these unsung heroes die protecting their human partners. In the United States, although the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) keeps track of the fallen human officers, the number of K9s that have died while on duty have not been exactly specified.

Recently, the remains of an unnamed fallen soldier and his improvised explosive device (IED)- trained K9 partner arrived on the tarmac of the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. How the airline staff volunteers transferred and handled their caskets from the plane really made me cry!

The airport has a group of airline employees and baggage handler volunteers known as The Delta Honor Guard. Since 2005, the group has been performing solemn ceremonies for fallen soldiers who pass through the Atlanta airport. At the end of each ceremony, the group will say a prayer and give a special Delta coin to the soldier’s escort, which will be delivered to the soldier’s family.

The Delta Honor Guard performs several of these ceremonies weekly, on arrival or departing flights. Brian McConnell, a Delta employee and their coordinator stated that this has been their way of expressing their patriotism. They do this to ensure that the remains, both of the soldier’s and K9’s are treated with the utmost respect and honor.

Random Strangers Share Their Biggest Regrets in Poignant Street Portraits.

What is your biggest regret?

By

We all make choices and mistakes we are not so proud of that we end up living in regrets. Human as we are, those 'what ifs' and 'could have beens' have become broken pieces of what we are as a whole--imperfect.

Through her awe-inspiring photo series, Alecsandra Raluca Dragoi, a Romanian photographer taught us that it's okay to have regrets and that we are not alone. Dragoi asked strangers about their biggest regret and their answers are raw and unfiltered for some while woeful and peculiar for others.

'This question has given me the chance to have a profound connection between me and the interlocutor, thus managing to get into their soul and bring out a grinding they have [had] for years,' Dragoi told MyModernMet. ...

She Took Selfies Everyday For Six Years. The Result? I Am So Worried!

A pretty girl’s battle with a serious condition is chronicled through everyday selfies.

By

Everyday since she was 14, 21-year old Rebecca Brown had been taking photos of herself to document her battle against a disorder known as trichotillomania. Trichotillomania is an obsessive-compulsive (OC) related disorder that compels an individual to pull out his/her own hair. The person may pull out hair from the scalp, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, underarms, pubic region, or any other hairy body part, which subsequently cause evident bald patches. This disorder seems to resemble OCD, an addiction, or a habit; however, it has been recently regarded as a body-focused repetitive behaviour (BFRBs), like nail-bitting or skin picking. Some people with trichotillomania experience very strong impulses to pluck out hairs that their daily activities are disrupted.

Rebecca made a video to collate the pictures she took daily for more than six years. The short video began from when she was only 14 years old,  back when she had very beautiful and healthy head of hair.  Her transformation and her struggles manifested as the years pass, and her beautiful smile also faded as she continued the battle. She indicated emotional events in the video that may have also contributed to the worsening of her disorder. In 2011, she became depressive and suicidal; the disorder had a huge negative impact on her life.

Despite her struggles, Rebecca was able to win the fight. She had been bald-free for one year come 2013 and had also been accepted to a film school. Now, at 21 years of age, Rebecca is looking like the fresh-faced blonde like she was before. She also has a more positive perspective in life.
