Here’s what to know for Tuesday:

  • Bus driver saves pajama day for first grader

  • Drug offers hope for deadly asbestos cancer

  • Mom’s love sparks awakening after five-year coma


Meet Larry Farrish Jr., also known as Mr. Larry, the exceptional bus driver who brings joy to everyone he encounters on his route.

One day, Larry noticed Levi, a student on his route, looking down. Upon inquiring, he learned that Levi was feeling disheartened because he lacked pajamas for the school's Pajama Day event.

You can picture that familiar feeling, right?

But Mr. Larry wasn't about to let Levi's day go from bad to worse. With his compassionate heart and quick thinking, he made a stop at the nearest store, purchasing cozy pajamas for Levi.

He then raced back to school, ensuring Levi received the pajamas before the day's end.

When Levi received the pajamas, his face lit up with gratitude and joy! Thanks to Mr. Larry's kind gesture, what could have been a dismal day turned into a memorable and uplifting experience for Levi.

But Mr. Larry's kindness doesn't stop there.

He doesn't just see himself as a bus driver; he sees himself as a friend and mentor to the students he transports.

When the school shared Mr. Larry's act of kindness online, the response was overwhelmingly positive. From "top-notch human" to "absolute best," it's clear that Mr. Larry is making waves, one bus ride at a time.

Let's give a round of applause to Larry Farrish Jr., the remarkable bus driver with a heart of gold whose selfless actions inspire us all.

Jennifer Flewellen had a normal morning in 2017 until she suddenly blacked out while driving and crashed into a pole.

But her mom, Peggy Means, wasn't having it. For five years, Peggy fought tooth and nail, even bringing her sewing machine to Jennifer's bedside.

Then, one sunny day in August 2022, Jennifer laughed.

It was like a lightbulb moment.

With Peggy's love and Jennifer's determination, they tackled therapy sessions. Now, Jennifer's back home, surrounded by family, including a grandbaby.

Peggy's now a full-time caregiving superhero for her daughter.

And the best part? They're not stopping anytime soon.

With dreams of walking and talking again, Peggy and Jennifer are a force to be reckoned with. So watch out, world, because these two are proving that with enough love and determination, anything is possible.

If you want an Oscar-level film this weekend, try AMERICAN FICTION (2024).
