It is a story that surprised a lot of people – for how could a young boy, aged 4, be best friends with a 90-year-old war veteran? Well, the real question here is, “why not”? Who said best friends have to be of the same age?
Emmett Rychner and his parents had been neighbors with war veteran Erling Kindem for some time. The young boy would visit Erling at his home or the old man would hang out with the family for a chat.
As best friends, the two would spend hours chatting or would sometimes play with cars.
Very unlikely best friends
Then, Erling moved to a senior home while Emmett and his family also moved to a larger house. But Emmett missed his old best friend so much that he would ask his parents to bring him to the senior home from time to time. Thus, their friendship continued.
On Erling’s birthday, Emmett was a special guest. And he brought along a special gift for his best friend…

A 13-year-old Girl With Autism Sings A Duet With Weird Al. I’m In AWE!
Most moving performance of Weird Al Yankovic with Jodi DiPiazza and Action Play Chorus. Awesome!
"Weird Al" Yankovic is a multi-Grammy Award-winning American musician, satirist, parodist, accordionist, director and television producer. He is known for his humorous songs and style. His name might ring a bell or it will probably remind you of one of his hits entitled 'You Don't Love Me Anymore.'

A biennial event was aired in Comedy Central on Sunday called Night of Too Many Stars benefit to raise money for autism services and educations. One of its highlights featured the 13-year-old Jodi DiPiazza with Weird Al Yankovic in a duet of his classic song 'Yoda.' Jodi is one talented girl and Weird Al is as exceptional as ever.
I was very touched with the entire performance especially the part where the rest of the boys and girls from Actionplay Chorus appeared on stage, singing with DiPiazza and Weird Al. Everyone was entertained and deeply moved by the epic performance that the audience had no choice - they had to give Jodi and Al a well-deserved standing ovation! ...

A Least Popular Kid was Nominated Prom King as a Joke, Until the Most Popular Guy Did THIS!
What act of kindness have you done lately?
In high school, being popular is what most kids aspire that they tend to forget the value of other things, like kindness.
A certain kid dubbed as the most popular guy in school didn’t let his popularity status get in the way of expressing kindness even to less popular kids in school.
Tyrell Clay, Miller High School’s football quarterback is loved by almost everyone in school. On the other hand, Adam Chadwick, who is obviously at the opposite end of the popularity spectrum of their school, was often called names by other kids in their school....
