“Great things come in small packages.” Much like this awe-inspiring
story about how a simple act of kindness changed a person’s life. Exactly what this world needs–what we all need.
When a homeless man named Marcus walked inside Abi’s Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota, he was only hoping to ask for some money. What he did not realize though was how that exact moment can alter his life forever, including the lives of other people.
Cesia Abigail Baires, the 25-year-old cafe owner could have instantly asked the stranger to leave but she did not.
What followed next, rather was a remarkable conversation between the two.
“Why don’t you have a job, you know nothing is given to me for free right?”she asked.
“Well, I have a lot of felonies and no one wants to hire me for that, so now I had to turn myself to the streets and get money the only way I know, stealing and asking for money?” he replied bowing his head down.
The cafe was understaff that day and she also needed a hand so the kindhearted owner decided to offer him a job.
“You want a job? Then I have one for you,” she told him.
“I will do anything for food,” he replied with a big smile on his face, overwhelmed for the second chance given to him.
That made Baires’ day too coupled with some realizations.
“We don’t know their situation… some deserve another shot. God gave me this blessing so why can’t I bless others?”she said.
On the other hand, Marcus has been working in the cafe since and has never been late for his 2-hour shift, Baires added. His tasks include washing dishes and taking the trash.
In a Facebook post, she recounts their meeting including Marcus’s story with his photo which has since gone viral.
While many are saying that Baires was a blessing to him, the cafe owner was quick to comment that it was the other way around–that it was her who needed a blessing.
“Just like Marcus, I had my help,” Baires explained. “I had plenty of people to help make it to where I am today. They believed I could do it. People need to have someone believe in them.”
She remembered one instance when she offered him a sandwich but instead of eating it, Marcus decided to pay it forward by handing it to another person.
“That really touched me,” Baires said.
Humanity at its best. Only goes to show too that everyone deserves a second chance. These stories about kindness, sharing and paying it forward should live on. Truly inspiring!
Crazy Man Biked 13,000 Km From Sweden to Nepal, Climbed Mt. Everest Then Biked Home
Swedish adventurer and mountaineer Göran Kropp’s crazy Mount Everest stunt back in 1996 is what makes him legendary.
Swedish adventurer and mountaineer Göran Kropp impressed the extreme sports crowd back in 1996, when he rode his bike 13,000 kilometers from Sweden to Nepal, climbed Mount Everest without any supplemental oxygen, and then biked home with his gear.
Kropp's fascination with climbing mountains began in 1972, when he was just six years old. His father took him up to Norway's Galdhøpiggen, which is the highest peak in Scandinavia at 2,469 meters or 8,100 feet above sea level.
After doing a brief stint in the military via the Swedish Parachute Rangers, Kropp set his sights on climbing the world's most challenging peaks. Prior to his Everest journey, he conquered his first major peak, Lenin Peak (located on the border between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan) in 1988. He went on to climb Iliniza Sur, Cotopaxi, Illimani, Huayna Potosi, Illampu, Muztagh Tower, Pik Pobeda, and so on.
Soon, We Will Have a Village on the Moon…For Real!
This is the tourist destination of the future!
As if landing and walking on the Moon are not enough for us humans, we will soon be taking vacations there, if the plans of the European Space Agency (ESA) pushes through. Seriously.
The ESA, with the help of other nations who engage in spacefaring, is working on 20-year plan to build a Moon village. This ambitious plan aims to use the village as base for scientific research, like how the International Space Station functions.
Daddy Calls His Son a Loser in Public and Bullies Him in front of Other Kids
Who would expect that this man will humiliate his son in public? Watch how a stranger reacted to the situation.
Everyone makes mistakes. This is particularly true for children who are just learning about life.
But this is not entirely a bad thing, for the mistakes that these kids commit can teach them what to do and how they can improve. This is where parents come in. It is the parents' role to ensure that the mistakes their child commits would bring out the best in their kid, and not call them names and make them feel bad.
When children are branded names, it remains in their mind. This unconsciously molds them according to the name calling they receive from people around them. So just imagine a child being called a loser by his dad in public. Soon, we can expect that he'll be called a loser by his classmates, and this child developing an attitude of a loser is not far-fetched. The child, after being verbally and emotionally abused, can cause attitude problems over time.
