We all hope for prosperity and discipline in the world. Depending on the country we are from, governmental rules are present to guide us to that path. But sadly, some leadership styles go beyond discipline and sometimes impose very strict policies that break families apart and even kill citizens. Examples of these authoritarian governments include communism and dictatorship.

From 1975-1979, Cambodia was forced under Pol Pot’s vicious communist regime. This period was said to have been a witness to extensive forced labor, torture and deaths of more than one million people in that country. One particularly harsh legal action in the said era was separating families.

At present, a show called, “It’s Not A Dream,” aims to give hope to families as they attempt to reunite family members after nearly 40 years of separation due to the said communist law. In one of the episodes, Lisa was invited to the show. She has been looking for her younger sister, Bo all her life. When the two finally met, tears kept flowing in the studio. Little did they know that the best surprise is yet to come.

- Alex Gitungano

We hear of stories where strangers do simple, random acts of kindness to help those in need every day. But for someone to put his/her life on hold and travel to a great, foreign country just to care for someone he/she hardly even knows is something far more extraordinary. It takes more than just a kind heart, but a pure, selfless, loving soul.

Lewiston, Idaho--29-year-old John Warnock was driving along Bryden Canyon on his way to work that Wednesday morning, the 15th of April when he noticed unusual debris along the road. When he looked up, he was stunned to see a 2000 GMC Yukon precariously hanging over the cliff's edge. The only thing that had stopped the SUV from plunging down the 30-foot vertical drop was a chain-link fence.

Apparently, the 23-year-old driver of the SUV, Michael Sitko, had an emotional episode that morning.

Sitko was carelessly driving above the canyon and almost hit another motorist so he veered from the road.

Jared Heine is a marine combat veteran who served in Afghanistan with his bomb-sniffing K9, Spike, about three years ago. But the two were separated when Heine sustained traumatic brain injuries and was sent back to his home in Louisiana. Like most war veterans, he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression. His mother was so concerned about him and was trying to find a way to help her son cope.

Since Heine constantly talks about Spike and how he misses him, she decided to search for his loyal buddy and reunite them.

She Spike was already assigned to another partner, a Virginia Capitol Police officer named Laura Taylor. It was love at first sight for the officer and for the past two years, she and Spike had become inseparable.
