21 Year-Old Saw An Old Man At Walmart, Who Refused Any Help.

Help

By Morgan Wheeler Via Facebook:

“I walked out of Walmart today and got in my car. As I began to pull out, I had to wait for a man in a wheelchair to pass by. As I watched him, I noticed that he was missing his right leg from the knee down and was wearing, what appeared to be, old, government issued, combat boots.

He was (from my guess) in his late sixties/early seventies and seemed to be stopping to take a break.

He had not realized that I had started my car and was attempting to pull out, so when he saw me, he waved in an apologetic manner and rolled forward three more times and took another break. I backed up my car the inches I had previously pulled forward, put it in park, turned off the engine, and got out.

I walked up to him and introduced myself. I asked him if I could assist him with his shopping today, and he, quite grumpily, said that he was doing just fine and was not getting much anyways. Me, being as stubborn as I am, insisted and proceeded to push him and tell him a little about myself. He interrupted me and said that he only needed help to the door, to which I picked up where I had left off before he interrupted me. I told him about Fayetteville, and my horses, and my nephews (I had parked a good ways away from the doors).

And when I reached the doors, I continued to push him and talk. We reached the produce area and I asked him to tell me about himself. He reluctantly looked at me and began telling me that he lived in Sod – Lincoln County, and that he just recently lost his wife. I asked him if he was a veteran, to which he replied that he was – but with pain on his face, so I changed the subject and asked if he had made a shopping list.

He handed me a list with only four things on it: peanut butter, soup, bread, and bananas. So we began shopping and I continued to talk… hard to believe – I know. Once we had gotten the items he needed, I asked if he needed the essentials: milk, eggs, butter. He told me that he might not make it home, without them going bad. So I questioned how he got to the store. He told me that he did what he was doing in the parking lot until he got to 119 and then hitch hiked with a trucker to the parking lot. So I called a taxi for him and grabbed the essentials plus a few other things and put them in the cart.

After placing a gallon of milk in his cart he was crying. People were passing by us, looking sideways at him. I knelt down and asked him what was wrong and he replied, that I “was doing far too much for an old man that I barely knew.” I told him that where I am from, and from the family I was raised in, we help one another, no matter the task and that I had never met a stranger. I also told him that he deserved everything I was doing for him because he fought for my freedom and sacrificed so much. We made it to the check out line and I paid for his groceries, against his request.

When we got outside, we waited for the taxi together. He thanked me over and over again and appeared – to me- to have been in a much better mood than when I found him. When the taxi arrived, I helped him load his groceries and wheelchair into the taxi and asked the driver to take him home and help him into his house with his groceries. I gave him the only cash I had on me – $44, also against his will. I told him thank you for his service before closing the door. Tears formed again and he thanked me one last time and said, “God bless you.”

I returned to my car, and could not help but cry. This is the world we live in today. How many people passed him and would have continued to pass him while he struggled? How many people are willing to give their money to Vanity Fair to read all about Bruce Jenner and not help a veteran pay for his groceries?

Today was a truly humbling experience for me, and I consider myself extremely blessed to have the capability of understanding what is truly important in this world.

THAT man was a HERO, and far too many will say otherwise. I am sorry that this post was so long, and if you have read it to this point, I hope you are as humbled as I was. God bless the men and women who have fought for our right to view the wrong people as heroes, and thank God for the people who know better.”

THINX Panties Could Revolutionize The Way Women Deal With Their Period

Panties

(PCM) Period, “that time of the month”, a visit from Aunt Flo, on the rag, no matter how you describe it a monthly menstrual cycle is something that millions of women across the world deal with each and every single day. It is generally something that a lot of women dread and certainly not something that we choose to talk about very openly.

A company called THINX wants to change all that and have created an amazing new panties line that promise to be “stain and leak resistant, wick moisture and provide anti-bacterial support”. Could the days of shopping for endless tampons and maxi-pads be finally coming to an end?

According to their website, where you can order THINX panties in a variety of super-cute styles, “THINX is made up of THINX QuadTECH, super-thin high-performance materials that resist stains and leaks, wick moisture and provide anti-bacterial support. The first line of THINX can completely replace panty liners on days when you want light support or it can act as back up to your traditional disposable or washable/reusable methods on heavier days.” Sounds like an absolute dream come true!

THINX is the brain-child of Antonia Dunbar, Miki and Radha Agrawal and they come in three different styles. Hiphugger ($34), cheeky ($29), and thong ($24) and although the price is a bit high for panties, they are completely reusable and think of all the money you will be saving not having to purchase all those pads and tampons each and every month.  Thus far the feedback on the THINX panties has been fantastic and many of the reviews claim they actually work. THINX has also partnered up with the startup AFRIPads to give seven pads to a girl in the developing world for every pair of underwear sold.  Not a bad deal at all!

What do you think? Would you be willing to put THINX to the test?

Could Sleeping Naked Make You Feel Better And Look Younger?

Sleep1

(PCM) The news about the benefits of sleeping naked have been circulating around for a good number of years now, however according to the National Sleep Foundation, only about 12% of people actually follow this advice. Research shows that a heft majority of people just out and out refuse to sleep in the nude for a variety of different reasons.

Experts claim that sleeping in the buff is both good for your body and good for your relationship with your partner, as well as a slew of other reasons which were recently complied in list by Good Housekeeping magazine.

It is known that your body temperature goes down as you sleep and several studies link insomnia with being too hot. According to GH, being naked helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep by keeping your body cooler.

The GH list also reveals that sleeping naked can make you look younger because when the body is cooled down properly, it releases anti-aging hormones (melatonin and growth hormone) and if the body temperature stays too high the regenerative power is blocked. Sleeping nude is ultimately a beauty blessing.

Also, sleeping in the nude can help increase the bond between you and your partner. Oxytocin, otherwise known as the love hormone,  is naturally release through skin to skin contact. It’s presence has been known to increase both bonding and emotional closeness in relationships. It can also boost self-esteem and overall confidence.

Finally, there can even be a immunity and physical fitness boost from sleeping in the nude. Skin to skin contact decreases the body’s production of cortisol, which suppresses the immune system. As cortisol levels go down at night than energy and hunger levels can stay balanced the following day.

Could Reading To Your Children Before Bedtime Be Considered Unfair?

bedtime-reading

(PCM) Why must people feel the need to pick apart everything, even a time honored tradition such as parents reading to their children before bedtime. A new idea has been shared on The ABC by a philosopher who feels that parents reading to their children before bedtime gives them an unfair advantage over less fortunate children.

The website questions whether or not having a loving family gives those children more advantage over those that come from less fortunate or broken homes. According to The ABC,  evidence reveals that there are major life differences between children who receive bedtime stories and those that don’t and that it might be possible to “level the playing field” by a cessation of bedtime reading to children.

The article calls for parents to be more mindful of the advantage that bedtime reading provides for the children and keep in their minds while practicing the tradition that there may be others less fortunate.

We can’t believe that anyone would be taking this seriously, as we truly need to be focusing on providing a loving and nurturing home environment for all children, as well as, encouraging all parents to read to their children before bed!

“Spice” Sends Hundreds To New York Area Hospitals

Spice2

(PCM) Experts have been warning people for quite some time about the dangers associated with the use of synthetic marijuana, otherwise known as “Spice”.  In just nine days, about 160 people have been seen at New York area hospitals having incredibly serious reactions to “spice” or “K2, also in the southern states of both Alabama and Mississippi there has been a notable rise in the number of synthetic marijuana-related hospital visits.

The New York State Health Commissioner reports to CNN that “Since the exact compounds contained in synthetic cannabinoid products change so frequently, it’s often impossible for users to know exactly what they are putting in their body.” There is often a range of symptoms that accompany reactions to using “spice” such as headaches, confusion, seizures and sometimes even loss of consciousness resulting in death.

Consumers are led to believe that “spice” is a legal plant-based material that is coated with chemicals that mimic the effect of marijuana.  Some of those so-called “safe” chemicals are the very same ones that are found in both insecticides and rat poison.

“Spice” is popular among teens because it is sold as natural product and often times marked as incense making it legal for them to purchase.
