A business owner named Deborah Keeling in Lynchburg, Virginia, made a special friend the moment a boy walked into her shop and asked her a question. “I’ll never forget, the first thing he asked was if I’m a Christian,” Keeling recalled , according to WSLS. The 11-year-old named Jamarius Burneson wanted to buy something for his mom’s gravesite, not just because it was her, but “because Jesus wants me to go, so I follow that,” said the boy whose biological mom, Alfreda, passed away in 2019 following her battle with diabetes. Although his adoptive mother, Pattie Burneson, said Jamarius has autism and was also diagnosed with PTSD, he lives every day to the fullest. “Jamarius touches people everywhere we go. He’s just a beautiful child. He has an amazing heart and considering what he’s been through in his life, he’s coming through really well,” she noted. When Keeling, who owns ACCENTS Flags, Gifts, Home & Garden , learned a small nameplate was the only marker on the … [Read more...] about Business Owner Buys Stone for Autistic Boy’s Mother’s Grave: ‘I’m Going to See That’s Done’
British forces are helping Ukraine monitor Russia’s huge military build-up amid fears of all-out war between the two neighbours. A small team of UK special forces has deployed to the region along with specialist communications troops from a Royal Signals detachment. And the Mirror has learned an RAF spy plane has been operating in Ukraine to soak up Russian communications for early warnings of an invasion. Two US warships – the USS Roosevelt and USS Donald Cook – arrived in the Black Sea at the weekend to try to deter Vladimir Putin from invading. Moscow has warned it may undertake “full scale combat operations” in Ukraine. Close to 100,000 Russian troops are at the 1,500-mile border or are on the way. Tens of thousands of Ukraine’s regulars and reservists have been called up. Ten of Putin’s warships are expected to arrive in the Black Sea this week to bolster the assault force. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he is “firmly opposed” to Russia’s campaign to … [Read more...] about British forces monitoring Russia’s huge military build-up amid fears of Ukraine war
Before Brandi Carlile was a folk-rock superstar, she was a high school dropout spending her time in a lakeside shed with her first real band, which comprised Carlile, her brother Jay, and a pair of thirty-something locals from Carlile’s native Washington State. Carlile’s teenage years days were full of uncertainty and exploration: In just a few short years, she would begin gigging relentlessly around Seattle and meet her future musical collaborators, the Hanseroth Twins . But before then, she spent much of her time narrowly avoiding trouble with siblings Jay and Tiffany, falling in love with her first girlfriend, Jessica, and tending to her horse named Sovereign, which she purchased for $75 at the age of 17.

Eight people were fatally shot in Denver in the first week of July 2020 , but no lawmakers called Jason McBride, a leader in gang violence prevention in Denver and Aurora, to ask what was happening. The silence continued the next week , when another eight died in shootings. National news did not cover the violence and there were no city-wide vigils. Nonprofits didn’t raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the victims, most were Black and Latino. “Matter fact, the first 28 days of the year in 2020, we had a shooting every day,” McBride told The Denver Post. “And we’re sitting here in these communities screaming and crying because our babies are laying in the streets or behind bars. And it’s been like that, and no one has addressed it.” That’s not the case when there’s a mass shooting like the one that claimed 10 lives last month in Boulder. Policymakers and activists then call for real action at the state Capitol or in Washington, D.C. , as opposed to mere … [Read more...] about Certain Colorado mass shootings prompt change.
