Hero of the Waffle House Shooting

The Waffle House shooting refers to an unfortunate situation where a shooter opened fire in a Waffle House, killing four people. The gentleman pictured is named James Shaw Jr., and he single-handedly stopped the shooter by grabbing the barrel of the gun and pulling it out of the shooters hands. In the struggle, he severely burned his hands and scraped up his body, including a bullet wound, but ultimately saved the lives of more intended targets. Shaw claims he’s not a hero and he didn’t even think twice to do it, but that’s what we expect a real hero to say! He then created a GoFundMe page to assist the victims of the shooting. Within hours, the $15,000 goal was nearly met.

Incredible Colorblind Glasses

This is something that many of us take for granted. This Tumblr user decided to share their experience with finally being able to see color, and it’s so heartwarming and inspiring that it really makes you sit back and think about all of the things that we overlook! Next time you’re out, stop and smell the roses! Or look at the very green trees.

Adorable Neighbors

This is a sweet situation between two strangers who happen to live close to each other. As we know, pregnancy cravings can be strong, and sometimes they are so strong that this woman had to use her nose to figure out what scent was driving her mad with hunger! I’m not sure what is sweeter: The pregnant woman waddling up to hopefully bother her neighbor for some food, her the writer of this story who graciously gave her some food!
