Broadway Actor Writes An Open Letter To The Autistic Child Who Interrupted His Performance

Broadway actors must contribute an incredible amount of their time and energy to getting their performances down pat just right.

They train for years in some cases just to get one particular show that they are doing to go the way that they want it to.

It is an intense line of work to say the least, and a lot of those on Broadway take themselves very seriously.

At the same time, you just never know what is going to happen when you get up on stage.

Kelvin Moon Loh is a Broadway actor who was recently putting on a performance of the famous play “The King And I” when something unexpected happened.

In the middle of the performance the actor was interrupted by the shouting of a member of the audience.

It turned out that the person shouting was a child, and it was not immediately clear what the nature of the disruption was all about.

It wasn’t until later that it was revealed that the child suffers from autism.

As the event was happening some members of the audience were visibly angry with what was going on.

Some members of the audience had spent as much as six-thousand dollars to see this show, and they did not appreciate that there was an interruption.

However, Kelvin Moon Loh had a bigger message for those who were angry as well as for anyone who suffers from autism who might want to see the show.

Loh sent a letter to the parents of the child as well as posted it out for the whole world to see.

What he wanted to say was that he was upset not at the outburst of the child, but at the reactions of those who attended the show.

He stated that he wanted to know when those who love theater so much had become so concerned with their own comfort while watching the show that they lost compassion for others.

It was a heartfelt letter that caused many to reconsider what their priorities were.

He went on to say that he felt compassion for the mother who was clearly trying to calm her child back down again and that he would happily redo the entire show or refund the ticket prices of those who were so upset with what had happened.

By and large, Loh was simply disgusted that so many had lost their sense of compassion for the situation.

The “Most Wicked Criminals In Texas History” Have Just Learned Their Fate

The “Most Wicked Criminals In Texas History” Have Just Learned Their Fate

In Texas, a couple attended church for one twisted reason – to find vulnerable children and prey on their innocence. As it turned out, Christopher Almaguer and Sarah Rashelle Almaguer, both 27, would find young children at church and offer to babysit them. But instead of just offering standard child-care services, the Texan couple would then sexually abuse the children, as young as eight-months-old, and film themselves committing the heinous act to share for a profit with other pedophiles.

Despite pleading guilty to these disgusting crimes and admitted they are serial child molesters, the state of Texas went easy on Christopher and Sarah, giving them only sixty-years in prison each.

As parents of five children, the Almaguers might have done a lot more damage than prosecutors were able to prove. But they have since pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of children and one count of production of child pornography. Although these crimes are perhaps the most heinous imaginable, they will eventually get to walk free. You’d think Texas would be hard on criminals like this.

Christopher’s brother, 25-year-old Paul Perez Jr. also got sentenced to 20 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to TWO counts of receipt of child pornography. Yes, he would gladly watch his brother and his brother’s wife commit horrible criminals acts to young children, sometimes as young as eight-months-old.

United States district judge Alan D. Albright also fined each criminal with a $10,000 restitution to be paid to the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Fund and to place them on supervised release for the remainder of their lives.

United States attorney John F. Bash said, “To me, this is the most significant case we’ve prosecuted since I became U.S. attorney. The Almaguers were serial child abusers. They abused 25 children that we know about. Children from the neighborhood, children from church, children they babysat. The youngest victim was an infant. And the nature of the abuse was unimaginable. They also made videos of the children’s torture and shared them. These are two of the most wicked criminals in Texas history.”

Nevertheless, Texas did not sentence them to life behind bars. Why the leniency?

In an effort to have the state go easier on them, the Almaguers admitted their crimes, testifying that back in December 2017, they shared explicit videos of themselves sexually assaulting young children.

As a sample of what these Texas criminals did, Christopher raped an infant while his wife used a pen to penetrate another girl. They are utterly devious criminals, the likes of which are unbelievable.

Investigators generated a list of about 25 victims. They all were located in the central Texas area. Thirteen of the victims have been identified, while others remain anonymous.

All three criminals have been in police custody since they were arrested in February and March 2018. And they will remain behind bars until they are old people.

Although the couple apologized for their crimes against the innocence of childhood, they say that they have turned their lives over to God who they believe will protect them.

Joe Biden Believes That Trump Is An “Illegitimate President”

Joe Biden Believes That Trump Is An “Illegitimate President”

When an American voter called President Trump an “illegitimate president” in front of Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden, he was more than happy to agree with her assessment. However, Biden did not just stop there – he took the accusation one step further claiming that America is “run by Vladimir Putin.” However, Biden quickly changed course and showed the people in attendance at a house party in Nassau, New Hampshire that he was joking when he asked the woman who made a claim against Trump if she would join him as his running mate.

The exchanged occurred at an alleged house party while the former Vice President of the United States decided to take some questions from the massive crowd that had gathered there in an attempt to get a glimpse of the presidential hopeful.

The woman got the chance to speak and led with her feelings about the current president.

“I have a very severe case of what is called Trump derangement syndrome,” she said. The crowd around her swelled with cheers and swoops at the hidden meaning within her words. She then said that she had the microphone more for a “comment than a question,” as she proceeded to criticize Trump and his relationship with Russian president Putin.

“I don’t want to live in a country run by Vladimir Putin. I don’t think anybody in the country should want that,” she said. “He is an illegitimate president in my mind. And my biggest fear is that he’s going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we’re going to be stuck with four more years of him. And that is terrifying. It’s terrifying.”

The woman finished her statement, and Joe Biden jumped at the opportunity to make a human connection and get the crowd laughing.

“Would you be my Vice Presidential candidate?” he asked. The crowd roared with laughter. He then made a clear statement about what he thought about President Trump and his connection to Vladimir Putin.

“Folks look, I absolutely agree, and one of the things we have to get this part straight in my view. In my view, you will never hear me speak ill of another Democratic presidential candidate, and there’s a simple reason for that. We have to be in a position for the Democratic nominee to win.”

Whether or not the American people decide to put Joe Biden up against Trump for the 2020 election has yet to be determined, but Biden seems committed to supporting whoever gets selected to go up against Trump.

“It may disappoint you, but I’m not going to get down in the mud wrestling with him. And I’m not going to stoop to his level. I’m not going to engage in the name calling.”

As the Mueller report continues to shine a light on Russia’s alleged connection the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, Democrats on Capitol Hill want more answers and are looking to throw their weight behind the right candidate for the presidency in 2020.

Officer Tells Mom To Pop Trunk Because Brake Light Is Out, Has No Idea She’s Recording Him

Officer Tells Mom To Pop Trunk Because Brake Light Is Out, Has No Idea She’s Recording Him

Although thousands of police officers now wear body cameras to track their movements and interactions, citizens still take out their cameras to grab evidence of their own. When people are worried that they’re about to be mistreated by the cops, they take their phones out and start recording. Sometimes they do this visibly so the police officer can know they’re on camera.

But in the instances we’re about to describe, a woman secretly filmed a police officer pulling her over for a routine traffic violation.

And what she gets on video has the internet beaming.

When Officer Jenkins pulled Chy-Niece Thacker over for a busted taillight, he could have issued her a ticket. It was a traffic violation after all. Instead, he offered her some thoughtful advice. And it made Thacker’s day.

As soon as Thacker noticed that a police officer was flashing her car to pull over, she started to freak out. She began fumbling for her license and registration and couldn’t find it fast enough to greet the cop with it when he got to her window.

Then he said something she didn’t expect.

“Don’t worry about pulling anything out. I just want you to know that your brake lights are out.”

Thacker was driving to a job interview. Getting pulled over made her risk being late. It was the last thing she needed on a day like today.

But when Officer Jenkins told her about the issue, she was stumped. She had paid a body shop to replace your brake lights last month. How could they already be busted?

Thacker told Officer Jenkins how Firestone charged her $600 to test the wiring of her car. He was shocked. So he asked Thacker to pop her trunk. He wanted to check it out for himself.

A bit of a car aficionado himself, Officer Jenkins started fiddling with the brake light. He wanted to see why they were not working. Perhaps, he thought, he could serve this woman and help her be safer on the road.

While another cop might have issued her a ticket, Officer Jenkins wanted to help her. He understood that she didn’t mean for the brake light to be out. Firestone had ripped her off.

Instead, he went above and beyond to offer Thacker help. She was touched, so she snapped a picture and posted it online.

“He is a blessing,” she wrote on Facebook about Officer Jenkins.

As thousands read her story, it went viral. More than 388,000 likes and 91,000 shares later, people were overjoyed to hear about the officer’s kindness.

She described the incident online. After he checked in the trunk, “he told me to pop the hood to check the relay box then asked me to get out to check the other one. He could’ve easily given me a ticket, but Officer Jenkins stepped out of officer role and into mechanic role to make sure I was straight.”

Sometimes people forget, but police officers are human, too. Moments like this remind everyone how kind 99.9 percent of them are.

Man Spots Weird Creatures In The Forest, Now Everyone Thinks His Photos Are Fake

Man Spots Weird Creatures In The Forest, Now Everyone Thinks His Photos Are Fake

Even if you spent your entire life learning all the species of animals on planet Earth, you’d fall hopelessly short of knowing everything. With about 5,400 species of mammals, 3,750 species of lizards and 3,000 species of snakes, 10,000 species of birds, 33,000 species of fish, and as few as 2 million and as many as 30 million total species of insects crawling across the face of this planet.

With an abundance of life all around us, it is no wonder that new species of animals keep cropping up in our awareness. As humanity develops new technology and new equipment to go further and deeper into the wilderness all around us, we will continue to learn about new species and identify others that never before were found by man.

Ever since the invention of the internet, people have gotten exposed to new and exotic things. That’s one of the great things about the internet – you can learn a lot in a short span of time. If you want to discover bizarre critters all over the planet, all you need to do is a quick internet image search, and your eyes will be bombarded with unique and cute critters.

An amateur photographer named Kaushik Vijayan was visiting a dense rainforest in India. And while he knew that he was going to see some amazing wildlife, one critter stood out from the rest as being utterly bizarre and unique. He had never even heard about Malabar giant multicolored squirrels, but once he saw one in the flesh, he would never forget it for the rest of his life.

While visiting the subcontinent’s rainforest, he witnessed one of these giant squirrels for himself and managed to capture it on film. Now his images of the Malabar giant multicolored squirrels are spreading across the internet as more and more people see what Kaushik saw that day he ventured deep into the rainforest on a mission to photograph some of nature’s most exotic creatures.

During an interview with SWNS, the amateur photographer admitted that he found the squirrels mesmerizing. Their hair which ranged in hue from purple to maroon, to red, to orange, to brown left him spellbound – he was utterly transfixed when the Malabar giant multicolored squirrel bounded into view.

“The squirrels fascinated me, and I got excited to capture this beauty on my camera,” he told SWNS.

More than twice as large as the eastern gray squirrel – the most common variety in the United States – these rainforest dwellers are massive and utterly gorgeous to behold. It’s no wonder that Kaushik found them fascinating. According to The Dodo, these squirrels can measure about 36 inches from head to tail – that’s large for a rodent!

“The sight was an absolute feast for my eyes,” he told the news site.

These animals can leap 20 feet from tree to tree. They’re quick and can span a large distance. They’re also at risk of going extinct. A squirrel expert said: “The real threat is the slow loss and degradation of forested habitats as humans move in and as climate change impacts higher elevation areas.”

What do you think about these amazing animals?

Heartless Owner Surrenders Dog Near The End Of His Life To Shelter Because He’s ‘Stupid’

Figgy is a black male poodle that has lived for over 18 years.

Before a kindly person took him into her home, ownership of Figgy was handed off to a shelter.

While shelters are sometimes the best place for a home that is unable to properly care for a dog, Figgy’s previous owners turned him over to a shelter because the wife loathed him to the point of referring to Figgy as stupid.Figgy

Between his small stature, blindness and fearfulness, no doubt instilled into him by his previous owner’s wife, Figgy had no idea what would happen to him.

San Francisco, California-based Muttville Senior Dog Rescue rose to the occasion to ensure Figgy’s last days would be spent in a loving home.

After securing him from his shelter, the rescue organization brought Figgy in touch with Eileen, a hospice mom.

Eileen loved Figgy from the first time she met him and Figgy seemed to indicate a similar level of appreciation the moment Eileen took him into her arms.

Figgy’s final days will be spent basking in Eileen’s adoration and care.

15-Year-Old Dog Cries As Owner Leaves Her Behind And Walks Out With Young Dog

This story will break your heart. A family came to a shelter with their 15-year-old Cocker Spaniel, named Cookie. They surrendered the dog.

Why? Who knows. Maybe they couldn’t handle the older dog any longer.

But the worst part of the story is that the family then proceeded to adopt a new puppy. How could they be so cruel?

Just give up the old dog and replace her with a puppy?

Dogs are not things – they are living creatures with feelings. You can’t just trade them in for a ‘new’ model.

Cookie saw the whole thing. I wish the shelter would not have let them take a new dog when they had just left one. That doesn’t seem right.

Take a look at this video

Those people will be back when the black lab they just adopted gets too old and replace it too.

Cookie was soon removed from the shelter and given a new home, thanks to Brittney Place.

Share away, people.

Driver Stops To Grab This Elderly Man At A Bus Stop. Has No Idea He’s Being Filmed

It’s always heartwarming to see people helping others in need, but to see someone go above and beyond while on the job is very admirable. Surveillance cameras aboard a Milwaukee County Transit System bus caught the good deed in action, as bus driver Thaddaus Turner made a stop, then escorted a passenger from the bus and safely to the sidewalk. He wasn’t done, however.

The man, Gene Hubbard, is blind and, due to construction in the area, he couldn’t take his typical route across the street, because it was now blocked. Turner recognized the potentially dangerous situation and walked the man across the street safely.

Hubbard had been diagnosed with diabetes and went blind more than 20 years ago, but has a full-time job and commutes via public transportation. Despite being blind, he is able to live an independent lifestyle, and knows the maps, routes, and schedules that allow him to do so.

This construction, however, threw a wrench into the works, as Hubbard told Fox 6 Now: “If I don’t have a regular locating point to start from, I may as well be in the middle of the ocean.”

Turner noticed that Hubbard was worried about the construction and, without hesitation, stopped to get up from behind the wheel and get Hubbard on his path again.

Turner remarked: “I knew I had the traffic behind me stopped, because it’s only one-way through there. My concern was getting him across from the opposite direction.”

Hubbard, who has gotten a helping hand from many drivers, added: “I just can’t say enough about all the bus drivers.”

Among the many people who weighed in with comments on the YouTube video of the moment were those who believe this kind of gesture should happen more often. One person remarked: “Kindness… WE should all practice this daily, life is too short and you never know when you will need the help one day!!”

Others shared comments of praise and encouragement, such as: “Not all heroes wear capes” and “If everyone would only take the time to look around, there’s people in need of help everywhere. Be kind to one another and be blessed.”

Among those who shared comments on the story on social media were those who praised the man and his parents as well, including: “We need so much more of this in the world! So proud of this young man (and the other bus drivers too!). Parents raising decent humans, kudos to you too!”

Another commenter was moved to tears, sharing: “Well that sure brought a tear to my eye after seeing the driver’s kindness! So glad that we still have people helping people!”

One person shared their own personal perspective on the matter, writing: “I am a bus driver, and I do the same thing every day. There are only a few drivers that actually care for the customers.”

Another person explained how they’ve seen similar assistance in action, writing: “We have a vision impaired gentleman in our neighborhood and I have observed our city bus drivers helping him across the street at the stops to make sure he is safe.”

Hospital Leaves 61-Year-Old With Down Syndrome With No Food For 20 Days – Then Things Get Worse

After failing to feed him properly for 19 days while he was admitted to the hospital, 61-year-old Giuseppe Ulleri died from pneumonia. The incident occurred back in 2016 after he died from being unable to digest the food through a feeding tube at Manchester Royal Infirmary. His death was determined to be caused by improper feeding while he was on his back – that’s what the jury at Manchester Coroner’s Court concluded.

Upon an honest and unbiased examination of the 61-year-old man’s case, the trust that runs the MRI said the care “fell well below our standards.”

The victim had Down syndrome. Did that contribute to the reason he received substandard care? Although Ulleri, who was known as Joe by his closest friends and family, had been extremely active during his life, he died while he was admitted to the hospital.

For the last few years of his life, he was living in a care home. But on February 26, 2016, hospital staff found him on the floor.

Scans and MRI tests did not reveal any significant injuries. However, but a follow-up X-ray revealed that the senior had a broken wrist, neck, and hip.

Because he had Down syndrome, he had trouble communicating his needs and looking after himself. For medical reasons, doctors made him “nil by mouth” and gave him a feeding tube on March 9, 2016. But when it was found to be causing discomfort, it was removed the next day.

Then for “long periods,” Coroner Angharad Davies said that he went with “no nutritional support” and that the “only nutrition he had was… when the tube was in place.”

More than a week later, the victim’s brother, Peter Ulleri, told doctors to insert the feeding tube directly into his brother’s stomach. Peter told the medical staff that his brother was dying because he was not getting any food. “Why the delay? He could die from this,” he told the doctors. Because he was denied food for so long, the 61-year-old was unable to recover from his procedure and died two days later.

He lost a significant amount of weight while the doctors failed to give him nutrition during his recovery.

The jury of six men and five women found that “failures in overall care” and “failure to provide nutrition” and that nursing him “in a supine position” contributed to the fatal long condition that ultimately took his life.

When the inquest was completed, Ulleri’s family released the following statement:

“Our brother was the kindest and gentlest soul yet he was allowed to die in the most horrendous way. Joe’s case needs to be a catalyst for change. The NHS and society as a whole  need to learn from Joe’s death to ensure nobody else with a learning disability suffers in the same way that he did.”

Since killing the man, the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust apologized, saying they have implemented “measures to ensure that this does not happen again.”

What do you think about this hospital’s failure to feed the man? Should they compensate the family?

Student Stops To Help Fallen Girl, But It’s The Runner Behind Her Making Headlines

When you think of college sports, do you usually think of selflessness? When it comes to matches, meets, games, and contests, athletes often do everything they can to win. Even more so, student-athletes must train in addition to keeping their grades up, making them strapped for time and often very stressed. But sometimes, they can still put their goals aside to help one another succeed.

Madeline Adams of Boston College woke up the morning of her ACC Women’s Cross Country Championship ready to compete. She knew what it would take to win, and she would probably stop at nothing to achieve her goals. Unfortunately, though, her body didn’t quite agree with her.

This passionate young woman did the best she could for as long as she could, but just two hundred yards from the finish line, she collapsed. Exhaustion set in, and spectators and competitors watched as she fell to the ground and struggled to get back up. No matter how hard she tried, it appeared that she wasn’t going to make it.

That was until Clemson senior Evie Tate came along. Despite watching her comrades and competitors passed her, she knew how much finishing the race would mean to this rival runner. Tate soon ran over to Adams, picked her off of the ground, and attempted to help her reach the finish line.

Unfortunately, Madeline Adams’ collapse was a bit more taxing than Tate had realized. Adams could not place one foot after the other, even with Tate’s help. It seemed like neither of them would make it.

That’s when Louisville’s Rachel Pease came along, proving that some things were more important to her than winning. Racers continued zooming by, as Pease grabbed onto Adams’ right shoulder and worked in-tandem with Tate to inch her toward the finish line.

When Pease and Tate both propelled Adams to reach the finish line, the announcers and spectators “oohed” and “aahed” at the impressive display of selflessness, and Adams was soon carried away to the medical tent where she would receive help, and much needed rest.

Later, she spoke to the ACC Digital Network about the selfless display of Tate and Pease: “It’s really emotional…to watch yourself relive that struggling moment…but I think now I’m really happy with all the attention it has gotten, not for myself but mostly for the other girls…You’re both angels…I’m so grateful for what you did. You’re both amazing people.”

It’s important to watch videos like this and remind ourselves that the athletes that take the field, pitch, or court are entertaining to watch, sure, but they are all humans who are striving to reach their goals. When athletes work together like this, it can not only change the athletes’ outlooks forever, but it can teach the viewers a thing or two as well.

Soon after the video went viral, all of the young women involved were praised for their courage and strength in the face of adversity. Evie and Rachel have both been interviewed and have gotten something that could mean far more to them than a prize or a trophy.

If you were in the race, would you stop to help her?
