Anyone can be a good Samaritan, all you need to do is act selflessly to help someone else out, especially a person who is in distress.  They are the people who react naturally to try and save others in emergency situations and who don’t hesitate to lend a helping hand. Nineteen year old Hanna Pignato is such a person and once you hear her story, you’ll understand why she fits the definition of a good Samaritan.

Hanna had been waiting on tables at around 7 pm while working at Joe’s Crab Shack in Daytona Beach, Florida when she suddenly heard a woman screaming outside.  She headed out of the restaurant to see what the matter was and realized the woman’s young son was struggling to stay afloat in the water. A rip current had knocked the 8 year old off his boogey board and was taking him out to sea, yet despite all the people who were on the crowded beach, no one seemed to be willing to help. 

Hanna sprang into action and ran down from the rooftop deck to the Main Street Pier below where she handed off her apron and phone to a customer.  Without hesitating she jumped off the pier into the water below, she didn’t even stop to think, and when she reached the bottom all she could feel was immense pain and pressure.  Unbeknownst to her, the spot where she had jumped from was right above a sandbar and she’d landed in less than three feet of water, causing her to break her back and foot. Despite the waves of pain washing over her, she still tried to swim towards the boy and didn’t stop until she saw someone else come to his rescue.  

At this point it was now Hanna who needed to be rescued, she too had gotten caught up in the rip current and her broken foot and back were making it nearly impossible to swim.  She was thankfully rescued from the water and immediately taken to a nearby hospital. After examining her injuries the doctors told her the terrible news; she had broken the top of right foot, her right heel, and had fractured her lower back in three places.  

Despite her selfless efforts to save a young boy she didn’t even know; she was now facing the sad reality of her situation.  Hanna would be unable to work or even move much for the next couple of months and her medical bills alone were over $75,000. She didn’t have health insurance and on top of that she lived in a third story walk up.  Her friends started a Go-Fund me page to help cover, or at least offset, the costs and she’s grateful for whatever help she can get.  

In the end, Hanna says she has been awed and amazed at the overwhelming messages of love and support she has received from people all over the world who’ve heard her story.  All she was trying to do that fateful day was save a child who needed help and despite what happened to her she doesn’t regret it, and that’s why she’s a good Samaritan.

Teenager Disappears For Over 3 Years Then Shows Back Up At His House. But Things Aren’t How They Seem!

Every year thousands of children are reported missing to authorities across the country, but thankfully the vast majority of them are soon found safe and sound.  For the few ongoing cases that remain unsolved, police and families work tirelessly to keep the investigation active and leads coming in. All they need is one clue to help break the case wide open and it can come at any time.  When one young boy went missing in Texas, his family could have never imagined how it would play out. It’s a case that has stunned everyone involved and it really makes you wonder how could this have happened?     

This past June 13, 2019 marked the 25th anniversary of the date that Nicholas Barclay went missing from San Antonio, Texas.  He was just 13 years old when he went to play basketball with some friends near his house and afterwards he disappeared without a trace.  His family did not report him missing at first because they thought he had run away and would soon be back. He had already run away from home several times before and had a troubled history of behavior.  The police had been called to the house several times after he’d argued with his mother and he would also talk back to his teachers and skip school.  

It got to the point where he had a sentencing hearing scheduled to see if he should be placed in a juvenile home, which he was vehemently opposed to.  The night he disappeared was the day before the hearing, which was another reason why his family assumed he’d run off, to avoid going to court. By the time a missing person report was filed, and the police started searching, the trail had already gone cold.  There were few clues to follow up on and no one seemed to have seen Nicholas.

Three years went by with no leads until one day authorities in Spain called and claimed they had found a boy who looked like Nicholas.  They said he claimed to be 16 years old and had told them how he’d been kidnapped from America and trafficked to Europe before he finally managed to escape.  Overjoyed that the long missing boy had finally been found, the Barclay family welcomed him back with open arms.  

From the start the family noticed that the Nicholas they had known had changed a bit.  However, they’d also been warned that he’d been through a lot and so when he seemed to act and look different than what they’d remembered, they didn’t really question it.  His eyes and hair color were much darker than before, which he attributed to his captors having dyed and medically changed them in order to alter his appearance in a bid to conceal his identity.  He also seemed to speak with a French accent, but he told them he was forbidden to speak English the whole time and had picked up his kidnapper’s accent. Not wanting to upset and question him too much after all he’d been through, the family let their suspicions slide and tried to get back to normal.

One man who couldn’t ignore the obvious differences was a private investigator named Charlie Parker.  He didn’t buy the boy’s story and noticed that rather than being upset by what he claimed to have gone through, the boy was incredibly open about it all and retold his story to anyone who’d listen.  He thought it was an imposter pretending to be Nicholas and after studying pictures of the two closely something finally jumped out at him and blew a hole in the boy’s story. The person claiming to be Nicholas did not have ears that looked anything like the missing boy’s ears.  

A person’s ears are like their fingerprints, uniquely individual and unchanging with time.  Since the ears did not match up, investigators, the Barclay family, and police finally knew the boy was lying and could not be Nicholas.  It turned out that the boy was actually a 23 year old French man named Frederic Bourdin. He was a renowned con artist who’d been nicknamed “the Chameleon” by Interpol for posing as missing children and stealing hundreds of different identities.  When Spanish police found him, they’d made an offhand remark about how he looked like the missing boy Nicholas Barclay, and from there he assumed the boy’s identity.

Naturally the Barclay family was stunned and heartbroken when they heard the news that they’d been lied to and that Nicholas was still missing.  They had wanted to believe it was him so badly that they’d convinced themselves it was, despite the obvious differences. Due to all the strange twists and mysterious circumstances in the case, no one knows for sure who to believe or what really happened.  For more information on the story check out the video and decide who you believe.

I’m not saying all teenagers are bad but for the most part this is the hardest time for any parent who will spend so much time being worried sick that their teenage child.

This brings us to today’s story which features a father and his 16 year-old daughter Anna. This dad was having a particularly rough day because his favorite sports team had just lost the big game and he was feeling really down and depressed about it. He drove home and thought it would be a good idea to pick up his daughter and get some delicious ice cream to try and have some fun and forget about his team’s big loss.

When he arrived at home and went into Anna’s room he was surprised to see that she wasn’t there or anywhere in the house. However, she had left a note for him to explain her whereabouts. Keep in mind, dad was already not in a good headspace so when he picked up this note it was about to become the perfect storm and every parents absolute worst nightmare.

I will paraphrase the note here and then you can watch the video below to get the full details. Trust me you are going to want to read every word of this note. The note basically reads as follows, Anna writes, I met a great guy who drives a motorcycle, has cool scars, tattoos and unique piercings all over his body. He is my boyfriend, my true love and we are going to elope.

Remember, dad was already in a very dark place as sweat dripped down his forehead, his heart dropped into his stomach and full blown panic was starting to set in. He took a deep breath figuring it couldn’t be that bad, not realizing that as he read on the note would get so much worse!

She writes, I packed up my all my stuff and am moving out.  We will be living together in his trailer. Also I am 3 months pregnant and we are going to be getting married next week! At this point dad went from panic to full blown melt down. His little princess was about to make the worst decision of her life and he had no clue where she was or how he could protect her and stop this insanity!

His heart was beating quick, as his fear and confusion levels reached an all time high, could he be living in the twilight zone?  How could his littler girl be so foolish? How could he have not noticed the signs? Where was she right now? But he kept reading, and just as he thought things couldn’t get any worse they did!

Boy Gets Cruelly Rejected Before Dance and Everyone Makes Fun Of Him. Then 13 Girls Line Up and Do THIS

image via –

It takes guts to ask someone you like out.  Whether it’s on a date, to dinner or the movies, prom or a school dance, there’s really no easy way around it.  You basically have to be direct and just go for it. These days kids have even upped the ante, they stage elaborate promposals and make signs asking their crush to accompany them.  What used to be a simple question asked awkwardly between two people is now a public affair.

That has made the humiliation of a rejection all the more public as well.  One high school student learned this the hard way when he asked a classmate to go to the homecoming dance with him last October.  Dakota Nelton, a sophomore from Gray, Louisiana, had made a big sign asking his close friend if she’d go to the dance with him, it would be his first ever date.  

He waited for the girl in the school hallway and popped the question when class was in session and kids were all around. Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned and she said no.  Dakota was crestfallen and dropped his sign in disappointment. Some of the kids who had overheard started laughing at him and a few were so cruel that they trampled on his sign, as if he needed another punch to the heart.

Things only got worse from there because someone had captured the whole thing on camera and uploaded it to the internet for the entire school and anyone in the world to see.  Now everyone could watch Dakota get rejected over and over again.

The video soon caught the attention of Alyssa Buckley, a fellow student at Dakota’s high school.  She and a group of girls didn’t like what they saw in the clip and instead of laughing at him they felt empathy for him.  Wanting to do something to help him they rallied together and by the time Monday morning rolled around 13 girls had joined the cause.

What they had decided to do was ask Dakota to homecoming at the same hallway location where he’d been rejected.  Each one had made a sign and they went up to him one after another, asking him to go to the dance with them. When he’d left school the previous Friday it must have felt like one of the worst days in his life, and now Monday was turning out to be one of the best days!  

He now had 13 girls to go to homecoming with and he was more popular then ever before. Best of all, his faith in humanity, and girls, was restored.
