set 27/ 2
4. And we’re back in China… it’s like we really never left…. a man jumped from a plane and when he opened his parachute, it had the words “Marry Me!” Then, a big wind blew him into a huge tree, where he was stuck for nearly an hour before firefighters were able to bring him down. Once on the ground, he finished his proposal to his girlfriend. But she simply was not impressed, said No, and walked away. Perhaps he should have just stayed in the tree and talked to the squirrels.
5. 10. Justin Beadles is the pastor of a little church in Stillwater, Oklahoma, so it’s highly unlikely he would do anything off color to embarrass his 15-year-old son, Jack. ……. Yeah…… When pastor Justin arrived to pick up Jack on his last day of school, he darted out of his car and ran toward his son yelling his name… in nothing but a black speedo, a swimmer’s skin cap and medals around his neck. Ouch! Jack’s gonna have to save face and get him back for that one.
6. Sometimes you’ve just gotta get down to someone else’s level. That’s exactly what Indiana State Police officer Precious Cornner-Jones did. As the officer was visiting a local school, she came upon a little boy crying while lying down on the floor in the hallway. So Precious herself got down flat on the floor to talk to him face to face. She wiped his tears and assured him it would be Ok. And soon, the little guy was up on his feet smiling again. Says the officer, “It wasn’t a cop moment; it was a mother moment.”
7. A man in Fort Sumner, New Mexico, caught a pesky mouse in his home. He thought it would be really cool to get rid of it by throwing it into the pile of leaves he had burning in his back yard. As the helpless mouse began to burn, it raced out of the flames and scurried back into the man’s house, catching it on fire. His house was completely destroyed. Which just goes to show you that even a tiny mouse can carry some big karma.
8. Melissa. In Connecticut, Gary Galka’s 17-year-old daughter, Melissa, died in a car crash in 2004. Some days after, strange things started happening. The doorbell would ring… and no one was there. Lights would flicker on and off. TV channels would change on their own. Then Gary started to feel Melissa’s presence. He felt someone tapping him on the shoulder, and lying down on the bed, he would feel what felt like a head laying on his chest. He was also have experiences like someone was kissing him on the forehead. Gary, an electrician, then devised what he named a Mel-meter, which is an electromagnetic sensor device that he insists helps him communicate with his departed daughter. With it, he says he has recorded Melissa saying to him: “Hi Daddy. I love you.”
9. When James Hardegree of Covington, Georgia spotted two dogs fighting over a dead carcass in his back yard, he quickly brought in his son, Colton, who was playing outside. But the mischeivous little 2-year-old found his way back outside again and got caught in a 7-foot chain that was dangling from one of the dog’s necks. That dog was a Rottweiler, and it viciouosly started attacking the boy, as did the other dog, a Labrador. James quickly ran outside and pulled his son from the jaws of the dog. Surgery had to be performed on the boy to reattach his left cheek and ear, but had it not been for James, his son would have lost his life.
10. How does a person feel when they find out their newborn has Down Syndrome? For Kerry Robles, it was, quote, “the darkest day of my life.” That was 5 years ago, and, just like the rest of us who say or think things we later regret, that thought of Kerry’s was one of her biggest regrets. She says, “I’m ashamed to say that my son’s birth was the darkest day of my life. I was devastated to learn he had Down syndrome. I couldn’t believe it. I could barely look at him. I was wrong.” She added, “I came to terms with his condition and completely fell in love with him.”
