11-year-old Phil Mick has has been going through a lot lately. The kids at his school have been bullying him, teasing him, and even physically hurting him. Phil's mom Tammy tried hard to reassure Phil that things would eventually get better. Still, Phil felt an overwhelming sense of sadness and even had mentioned suicide because the pain of being bullied was so intense for him.
Tammy turned to God and prayed that He would send them an angel to help with the whole situation. And boy did He deliver, he sent 50 angel in the form of bikers to escort Phil to his first day of 6th grade. These bikers had breakfast with Phil and his family and even prayed with them. They encouraged Phil to see this new year as a fresh start. Role models like this mean everything to children.
I'm so glad these bikers stepped up and helped this boy in need find his footing. God bless them all!
With all of the technological advances of today’s world, it seems there is a lot out there to distract our younger generation. And it’s become a bit of a stereotype to picture the youth of today as totally self-consumed -- too busy posting selfies and updating social media statuses to be aware of what’s going on in the real world around them.
But take heart! God is still at work in our kids!
Kailen Young, a 17-year-old who works at a Hardee’s restaurant in Tennessee, is one of those kids. While outside of the restaurant, washing the windows, he noticed a sweet, elderly lady that could use a hand.
And so, the young man stopped what he was doing and took the time to walk the adorable Bobbi Clare to her car.
A passerby, David Yardley, was so touched by the scene, he stopped and snapped a photo, saying:
But David wasn’t the only one moved by Kailen’s actions. After David posted the photo to the Hardee’s Facebook page, it went viral, prompting Hardee’s to honor the boy with a $1,000 reward.
And if you didn’t already love this young man for his kindness, his humility is sure to make you a fan. Kailen has been completely surprised by all of the attention and praise. He doesn’t see where he did anything special, saying,
But to the sweet lady whom he helped, Kailen’s kindness is something very special indeed. She says
And I have to agree. Hats off to Kailen, who is sure to have one proud mama! Let’s all try to send out a little more love and kindness today. Because, can you ever really have too much kindness?
