heartwarming

How rare is it that we see a text sent to the wrong person evolve into a heartwarming scenario like this one---and with a Thanksgiving dinner invitation to boot! Jamal Hinton is one lucky dude, and you better believe as soon as he shared the original conversation to Twitter, plenty of other hungry teens were ready to beg for their invitations. Fortunately, the numbers have been disconnected!

Marc Carter's 14-year-old son Ben who suffers from severe autism, has drank from this Tommee Tippee cup, and no other Tommee Tippee cup out there, since he was two years old. Since then Marc has grown very concerned that his son is apt to suffer severe consequences of no other cup is found as replacement. Marc said, "People say he will drink when he's thirsty, but two emergency trips to A&E with severe dehydration say otherwise."

On Sunday at 3 in the morning Mark Ross was notified that his sister, Eliza Fletcher (15 years old) had been killed in a car crash. Inside Edition reports that Trooper J. Davis ended up pulling their car over for speeding over 100mph; and that when Davis determined that Ross had an outstanding warrant and that his license had been suspended, he ended up towing their car.

Fast forward a bit, and Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robinson showed up and saved the day!



Ross also went on to share some texts he'd exchanged with his sister mere weeks ago. May she rest in peace.

Much of the Pokémon GO coverage thus far has been centered on whether or not Niantic's finally going to get it's sh*t together with server issues, if Articuno is actually legit in-game, and a steady procession of people making stupid mistakes/hurting themselves cause they were caught up in trying to catch their 170th Magikarp.

But today, today we've got a quick little heartwarming Pokémon GO story for you: 

Arizona resident Angie Swartout and her autistic son, Ty, were busy enjoying playing Pokémon GO together when they were approached by two male Arizona State University students in Tempe Beach Park, who sprayed the two with BBQ sauce and then yelled, '“Yeah, we got the [r-word]!”

After the terrible incident, Angie Swartout's daughter took to the Pokémon GO Facebook page to ask others to unite and take a stand against such immoral behavior.

“If you see something like this happen, please don’t stand idly by. Even if you can’t do anything about the people that did it, help the family. My poor mother had to wash her and my brother off with a bottle of water. She was humiliated. And for what??? She had no reason to be humiliated, but those 2 ASU students certainly need to be embarrassed by their behavior today.”

This post inspired a wealth of hugs and gifts from compassionate neighbors in the Tempe area. Angie Swartout told ABC15:

“I’m so grateful. I’m just so grateful because if this wouldn’t have happened, we would still be hiding in our house like a lot of families like ours do. And I just can’t thank everyone enough.”

Alexander Steinberg, an 18-year-old aspiring filmmaker managed to put together a video that encourages us all as an audience to take a minute, and ask ourselves, 'why does Pokémon GO! matter?'

Does it really? Or is there something more meaningful, impactful 'afoot? Is it the game's ability to unite strangers that'd otherwise never cross paths? One quote captured in the video sticks out in particular:

“You know my favorite part about this? Number one my brother and I used to play this as kids. He ends up passing away,” CrobinMaxxis said, pointing up. “He’s up there still, still, having a better fuckin’ collection than I do. But all the violence in the world, brutality, all this fucking racism. Look around here. You see this?” he said, gesturing to the crowd. “Not a single one is the same. Everyone is having a good time. This is what the world needs now.”

Amidst all the Pokémon GO madness, it's heartwarming, bittersweet moments like this that can really strike a chord of positivity in an otherwise mad and wild circus.

So, when a Japanese Pokémon GO player tweeted that he found his deceased younger brother's favorite pokémon beside his headstone, it's a nice bit of serendipity.
