So what happens if the big guys cannot do what they’re supposed to do? Easy, send them the little ones. As ironic as it may sound, this apparently worked out when a daughter misses her daddy that much and went extremes just to be with him.

Given that NHL is pretty much the hype nowadays, Jordan Leopold took the road to sports career and landed a job as a professional hockey player in the NHL. Leopold started a promising career in ice hockey as a defense man in the 2002–2003 season followed by a tremendous inclusion in the 2006 Winter Olympics team. By this time with NHL, he has already played for seven different teams, including most recently the Columbus Blue Jackets in Ohio.

As Leopold tries to juggle being both a father to a son and three daughters residing in Minnesota and a team player in Ohio, the unfortunate fact of team trading leaves him no choice but to move out away from his family for some time. Thanks to his intelligent 11-year-old daughter named Jordyn Leopold, things turned around when she took the initiative to write an awfully persuasive letter addressed to none other than the coaches of her dad’s current team — the Minnesota Wild.

“Dear Minnesota Wild Coaches,
My name is jordyn Leopold. My Dad is jordan Leopold one of the Columbus blue jackets Defenseman. Well my Dad is very lonly without his family. We are living in Minnesota right now and I am lost without my dad and so is my mom, my 2 sisters, and my brother. My Dad is on a team with young Guys and is very lonly and is not playing because the jackets got him because they needed a D man. It has been since November and we can not take it anymore. Well to get to the point, the wild have not been winning Games you lovly Coaches are most likley mad about that but your team need’s some more D men so can you please, please, plase ask the jackets if you Guys can get him!

Thanks.

Love Jordyn Leopold [smiley face]”

You’re probably thinking if this letter did, in fact, reach the big bosses? Well, although the photo captured by her mother was only for close friends’ viewing, the odds may have really been in their favor. The million Netizens on Facebook took the spree pretty seriously making the letter reached its own stardom.

The results? Well, guess who’s playing in the next season for the Minnesota Wild? Of course, Jordan Leopold! From there, he obviously cannot contain himself from being emotional saying, “My kids picked me up at the airport last night with open arms. I try not to get emotional, but it is. It’s a great thing.

Although we are fancied by kids being themselves, this incident only proves that we should not take kids for granted. When they say they’ll take care of it, then there’s a 99.9% chance that they REALLY MEAN BUSINESS.

While Jordan Leopold played for the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Minnesota Wild hears the plea of an 11-year-old Jordyn Leopold’s to transfer his dad back to their team.

"I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice." - An excerpt from the Hippocratic Oath

Doctors and nurses understand that it's not easy for anyone to just take medicines, expose their naked bodies, and simply entrust their lives to strangers. That is why trust is one of the most vital elements that should be established between healthcare providers and the patients themselves. Patients should be confident that their doctors will never deliberately harm them in any way.

The healthcare staff's competence, knowledge, and behaviour are as equally important, particularly if a patient has to undergo a major surgery. Imagine being completely oblivious of what's happening inside the operating room (OR), and what the surgeons and nurses are doing to you. Imagine what might happen then if you're in the hands of negligent, irresponsible, and incompetent people...

Who would have thought that a chance encounter between two teenage girls from Washington D.C. would completely change their lives?

For 17 years, Robin Jeter and Jordan Dickerson never had the chance to meet each though they just live a few miles away from each other. In fact, their schools are about 10 minutes apart  as Jordan is a junior student  at Woodrow Wilson High School while Robin Jeter is a senior at Friendship Collegiate Academy public charter school.

Both student athletes, Robin and Jordan were seemingly destined to meet each other during a track meet. While sitting in the stands, Jordan’s friends noticed her striking similarities with a rival runner. Even Jordan’s mother Patrice saw how much the two athletes resembled each other.

Josiah Duncan, a five-year-old boy from Alabama, had no idea what being homeless meant until he saw one standing outside  a local Waffle house restaurant.

Troubled with the man’s appearance who was holding a bag and a bike, the curious kid began asking questions to his mom Ava.

After realizing the homeless man had no food to eat, the little boy asked his mother to buy the  man a meal from the restaurant. Of course, Ava couldn’t say no to her son who didn’t have any second thoughts in helping the needy.
