Do you understand now?
How Richard II's grave was discovered. Richard III, the last King of England to be killed in battle, died at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. Human remains found in 2012 by archaeologists under a car park in Leicester have now been confirmed to be the remains of King Richard III, by matching its DNA to that of Michael Ibsen, a Canadian carpenter living in London who is a confirmed 17th generation descendent of the King's sister.

9-year-old Joshua had to have surgery. He brought his stuffed wolf, who had a tear in its leg. Joshua asked if the doctor could do a wolf surgery too. Surprisingly, he did! #amazing #hopeforhumanity
These are the little things that make a difference in life. Bravo doctor! Faith in humanity restored.
This restored my faith in humanity. -- It's so nice that the busy doctor took the time to do this for this little boy. It probably made a scary, negative experience/memory, not so scary after all.
Little Things Make the Difference in Life. This little boy had surgery...and his stuffed wolf did too. awesomely cute
Slow clap for awesome people.
I had a similar experience when I was a child. I was going into surgery and I had a stuffed monkey. They were giving everyone bracelets saying they were aloud with my and they were with me. I told the doctor the monkey wanted one and my parents said no a few minutes later a nurse came out with a bracelet that said the name monkey and saying it was with me. For any medical personnel that has a heart to do little things like this to help a patient- THANK YOU!

Faith in humanity restored. I love reading these stories! There are some genuinely good people out there.
Lately I've really been struggling with the purpose of life. This was a perfect reminder. Proves there is still some good in this world. Melted my heart & gave me goosebumps. My faith in humanity has been restored. Reminder to myself to take more opportunities to do random acts of kindness.
glad i can still have faith in humanity
Faith in humanity restored! I think I just felt my heart melt!
The thing is... People really are good. When it comes down to it, there are only a fraction of people who sincerely want to hurt others. I think we should always have faith 'restored.' If we talked about all these unseen things rather than the negative things in the news, I think people would also always have 'faith restored.'

-Losing the forest worldwide!... This is something to think about, so sad!
Well said by the previous pinner: It is impossible to overstate the importance of humankind's clearing of the forests. The transformation of forested lands by human actions represents one of the great forces in global environmental change and one of the great drivers of biodiversity loss. The impact of people has been and continues to be profound. Forests are cleared, degraded and fragmented by timber harvest, conversion to agriculture, road-building, human-caused fire, and in myriad other ways. The effort to use and subdue the forest has been a constant theme in the transformation of the earth, in many societies, in many lands, and at most times. Deforestation has important implications for life on this planet.
Sometimes the truth hurts...
Plant a tree. It won't be a forest, but it's a start. #environment #world #forest #earth
Man is ruining the earth, its forests, oceans, atmosphere, animal life, aquatic life etc.and once that is ruined so will human life..what we are doing is self-destruction b/c of GREED and NO concern for the earth...from too much taking and not giving back to her what she is going to give us in return mother nature and earth...floods, global warming, polluted waters, sick animals/birds, polluted oceans, hurricanes, tsunamis, melting of the icebergs, lack of oxygen ...we reap what we sow...

RIP ~ Lonesome George (Galapagos Tortoise) - the sole surviving member of his species who were hunted to extinction - has died today (June 25th, 2012). He was estimated to be around 100 years old. How profoundly sad to witness the end of one of the species with whom we shared this planet. ♥

congratulations to Felix Baumgartner for not only breaking the highest freefall ever achieved by man but also the farthest and longest freefall ever achieved. This man is simple proof that, if you have a will to do something there is a way. He is a true inspiration to us all, and showed us that mankind can still achieve amazing things and that nothing should get in the way of our goals.

On 3/15/12, Austria’s Felix Baumgartner, an extreme athlete, jumped out of a space capsule from an altitude of approximately 71,580 feet as part of the Red Bull Stratos project. At precisely 9:50 a.m., Baumgartner landed with his parachute in the New Mexico desert nearly 30 miles away from Roswell, wearing a spacesuit, as he safely completed a journey towards the edge of space. Less than 2 hours earlier he had lifted off from Roswell in a space capsule attached to a 165-ft-high helium balloon.

This quote reminds me of a story about my brother. My brother's Dad had passed away and he saved his money and bought a salt and pepper shaker for Mom for Christmas. He was so proud and happy to be able to give her a gift. She proceeded to chew him out for doing such a thing and was ungrateful for the deed. He is 60 yrs old and it has never been forgotten....forgiven but not forgotten.
When a child gives you a gift ♥
Thoughts, Remember This, Quotes, Little Gift, Children, So True, Kids, Rocks, Gratitude
I still have a few rocks somewhere that the kids gave me cause they thought they were cool and I would like them. Its that they thought I would like them that matters, not the actual object. : )
So very true! I love the little gifts my kids find and give to me! Zach gives me a lot of special rocks!!
So true!!!! Ironically, one of my students just gave me a rock today. She had her pencil box full of them and she said she picked that particular rock because it was the shiniest of them all. SOOOOO sweet!!!! Anyway, let's not forget that children are beautiful and fragile and that how we treat them can possibly affect how they see the world and how they treat others.
Both my children used to always give me rocks and twiggy leaf things when they were little, come to think of it, they still do... I love this quote
When a child gives you a gift, even if it is just a rock, exude gratitude! It might be the only thing they have to give, and they have chosen to give it to you. I have to remember this.

An AMAZING story about elephants that defies human explanation. For 12 hours, two herds of wild South African elephants slowly made their way through the Zululand bush until they reached the house of late author Lawrence Anthony, the conservationist who saved their lives.The formerly violent, rogue elephants were rescued and rehabilitated by Anthony. The elephant herds loitered Anthony’s compound to say good-bye to the man they loved. But how did they know he had died?
Lawrence Anthony dies. Two herds of grieving elephants that he had saved travel miles and miles to make a call on the bereaved family at the deceased man's home. They sensed they had lost a beloved friend. Anthony wrote "The Elephant Whisperer"

Anthony Lawrence, also known as “the elephant whisperer” passed away March 2nd, 2012. Several days after Anthony died of a heart attack, as if out of nowhere, a herd of 20 elephants arrived at his doorstep, led by two matriarchs. Separate wild herds had walked over 12 miles to make the journey to his home.The family and others, who photographed the elephants making their way to the house, were amazed at the sight of the elephants not only because they somehow ‘knew’ about his passing but also because they’d been able to remember a route they hadn’t made for more than a year. But perhaps the most astonishing aspect of the funeral cortege was its demeanor.As soon as Anthony died, the elephants had begun a slow and solemn single-file procession from their wild habitat to his home. After paying their respects for two days and two nights, they turned to make their slow journey home. Nevertheless, the family says that they have returned several times since, to share their grief over the loss of their beloved friend.
Saying Goodbye: Elephants Hold Apparent Vigil To Mourn Their Human Friend Lawrence Anthony was a conservationist and author known as "The Elephant Whisperer" who passed away on March 2nd. In 1999, Anthony rescued and rehabilitated a group of wild South African elephants who were deemed dangerous. And the animals appear to remember what he did for them: when Anthony passed away, a group of elephants visited his house in the South African KwaZulu for a two-day vigil, according to his family.
When “elephant whisperer” Lawrence Anthony died in March 2012, two herds of his elephant friends came to his house. If there ever were a time, when we can truly sense the wondrous ‘interconnectedness of all beings,’ it is when we reflect on the elephants of Thula Thula. A man’s heart’s stops, and hundreds of elephants’ hearts are grieving. This man’s oh-so-abundantly loving heart offered healing to these elephants, and now, they came to pay loving homage to their friend.
“We all know how strict hospitals can be about anything out of the ordinary, but one hospital made an exception — and it made a world of difference to a dying woman. This picture was posted by a guy on Reddit. His grandmother is in a hospital dying, and the hospital allowed the family to bring her cat in for a visit.”

This is the sweetest picture I’ve seen lately. We all know how strict hospitals can be about anything out of the ordinary, but one hospital made an exception — and it made a world of difference to a dying woman. Those who don’t have animals probably don’t understand. There’s a special kind of love that develops between pets and people. I know that if I were dying, I’d like to be surrounded by my furry friends.
Doing the rounds on French Facebook: a hospital allowed a woman's beloved pet accompany her for the last few days and hours of her life. Animals really do leave a smile on our face & foot prints on our hearts forever and can possess the power to heal, being in company and avoiding loneliness is not limited to fellow human interaction.
this is beautiful... hospital let this dying woman have her kitty by her side for the last few days she had left.
