This School Teacher From India Bought A Bus To Ensure Students Had A Way To Get To School

July 17, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

Many kids in Baarali village in Udupi, India drop out of school due to the nearly 2-mile trek through forest to reach the school.

So, one of the school’s teachers bought a bus and now drives the kids to and from school to ensure they get a good education.

“There are no roads from the houses of the children to the school. There is a mud path through the forest and most of the girl students began dropping out as their families were scared of allowing their children to walk for a total of 6 km to and from school,” said Rajaram, the science and math teacher at Baarali Government Higher Primary School.

“Every week at least five to six students were not turning up. I called up one of our former students – Vijay Hegde and proposed the idea of buying a bus to pick up and drop the children,” Rajaram said.

About six months ago, Hegde, another alumna of the school and Rajaram pooled in money and bought a bus for the school.

Rajaram could not afford to pay a bus driver, so he decided to drive the bus himself.

Walter Carr’s vehicle broke down the night before he was supposed to start a new job with a moving company, but he didn’t panic. Instead, he set out on foot and walked more than 20 miles in the middle of the night to ensure he arrived on time.

Walter walked at least 14 miles before police picked him up at 4 a.m. Once they learned his story, they took him to breakfast and then gave him a ride the rest of the way to the home of the Lamey family, who he was scheduled to help move that morning.

Jenny Hayden Lamey shared the rest of the story on Facebook:

Dad’s Secret Graduation Present To Daughter Took 13 Years To Make

July 13, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

graduation present

I graduated High School this week. When my Dad said he had a present for me I thought I was getting some cheesy graduation card. But what I received was something truly priceless. Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of “Oh the Places You’ll Go,” by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled and said that it meant a lot and that I loved that book. But then he told me “No, open it up.” …On the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. I start tearing up but I’m still confused. He tells me “Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I’ve gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book.” He managed to keep this book a secret for 13 years, and apparently everyone else in my life knew about it! Yes the intended effect occured… I burst out in tears. Sitting there reading through this book there are encouraging and sweet words from every teacher I love and remember through my years in this small town. My early teachers mention my “Pigtails and giggles,” while my high school teachers mention my “Wit and sharp thinking..” But they all mention my humor and love for life. It is astounding to receive something this moving, touching, nostalgic, and thoughtful. I can’t express how much I love my Dad for this labor of love.

A Comic For All Those Who Has Ever Felt The Emptiness After A Breakup

July 3, 2018 | No Comments » | Topics: Life |

no girlfriend comic

Hey, what’s up, I’m Brandon. A few months ago I had to break up with a lady, as often happens with dudes and ladies, but I can’t say I was particularly happy to do it. It left a very specific person-sized hole in my life, and I felt unmoored, for quite a while. I was adrift! I was a slug. I was apathy personified. I was also, it may not surprise you to learn, relatively unhappy at times. I thought to myself. “Self,” I thought, “Self, you are ridiculous.” And it was true that I was. To celebrate my new-found understanding and to figure out a way to retain a bit of perspective on my slothful drifting, I started to write some little vignettes about the dumb sadness tricks my brain perpetrated on me during this time. Dami Lee, having the ability to draw, and also possessing a firm understanding of ladies (having been one her whole life), seemed like the perfect choice to turn these dumb things into tiny comic strips for your reading bemusement. And so it is. We will release one of these every Monday, and will stop when the well has run dry. If you enjoy this stuff, you can follow us on things, like twitter: twitter.com/necrosofty and twitter.com/dami_lee or these places: facebook.com/asperusual. Okay have a nice forever bye bye.
