The crowd cheered for a disabled dad as he proudly escorted his daughter while using his hands to walk.
At 79 years old, Alexandre José da Silva still feels rather healthy and well; although he has long resorted to using his hands and arms in walking because he lost use of his legs back when he was 15 years old due to an undiagnosed spinal condition.
Alexandre had eleven children with his now 68-year-old wife Maria but only three of these children survived. One of these is Rosany Caetano, the one he escorted at her graduation from Piaui State University in north east Brazil.
Rosany finished with a degree in law and plans to pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer while also saving money to buy her father an electric wheelchair so he would no longer have to resort to using his hands to walk.
In a video that has gone viral on social media, the crowd could be heard cheering as Rosany walked together with her parents. Clad in a toga, Rosany held her mother Maria’s hand while dad Alexandre tried to keep at pace with the pair by using his hands, aided only by a small stick and a block of wood.
But the people who saw the trio walking on the red carpet in the school were quite amazed at this proud father and his happy family. While some students would have been embarrassed to have their father seen in this manner, Rosany was proud of her father.
Alexandre was quite surprised at the attention he’s getting from the crowd and later on social media, saying he’s been walking this way for most of his life that he feels it was just an ordinary thing for him to do.
Still, people greatly admired him for supporting his daughter and sending her to school despite his condition.
Rosany is actually the first in their family to get a degree.
“I had to live away from home and work part-time doing all sorts of jobs from cleaning to waitressing to support myself through the course. My parents helped where they could but what they lacked in money they more than made up with love, encouragement and the amazing example of how they’ve led their lives,” the graduate happily narrated.

This 7-Year-Old Made $11 Million In 2017 Alone By Making Videos On YouTube
If you have a toddler at home who loves watching YouTube videos, there is absolutely no way that you haven’t heard about Ryan’ Toy Review.
It is a YouTube toy-review channel wherein the host is a kid himself. The kid is the 7-year-old Ryan who features toys and board games that they actually play with.
Ryan, together with his Mommy and Daddy started his channel when he was three. He started as just another fan of toy-review videos when he asked his parents if he can have his own channel.
They created one and posted videos of him they started in March 2015.
Their first video was of him buying a toy in the store, going home and then playing with it. As of today that video already has over 30 million views.
By July 2015, they posted a video with Disney’s Cars theme and it went viral.
The channel then grew to a whopping 10 million subscribers! The subscribers alone are enough to give them $1 million a month. What more with the other views and advertisements.
Ryan made it to the Forbes’ annual list of highest-earning YouTube celebrities.
Before, their videos were only of him and his Daddy. Mommy was always behind the camera and just taking the video.
In November 2016, she revealed herself, as 2 more addition to their family was added. Ryan has two twin sisters Emma and Kate.
Along with this, they created another channel where they feature their adventures as a family. They called it “Ryan’s Family Review” where they can be seen enjoying the day.
When Kate and Emma learned to walk, their whole fandom rejoiced with them. Unlike Ryan which we first saw when he was already 3, the viewers were able to watch Kate and Emma and all their milestones.
In 2017 alone, Ryan and his family generated around $11 million pretax, according to Elite Readers.
Grandma with Alzheimer’s Disease ‘Meets’ Granddaughter Every Day
As we grow older, our body slows down and gets sick easily. Aside from getting wrinkles and having brittle bones, there are also plenty of other health concerns that could affect us, including Alzheimer’s Disease, a medical condition that is often associated with old age.
Someone with Alzheimer’s Disease suffers from memory loss due to the degenerative nature of the condition. There would come a time when the patient could no longer remember even the ones dear to him or her, including own family members!
While that is truly a sad situation, one family has found joy in their difficult circumstances. The family’s grandmother suffers from Alzheimer’s Disease. She could no longer remember a lot of things or recognize many of her family members.
But what’s sweet is that she remains a kind, gentle person who loves kids.
In a video that has gone viral on NTD News via Storytrender, this grandmother was introduced to a baby who was just born a few hours beforehand. She had no idea that she’s the baby’s grandmother but looked quite surprised and excited to learn this child is her granddaughter.
But as the days passed, she would ‘meet’ her new granddaughter over and over again because she keeps on forgetting about the child and their relationship.
It was really quite bittersweet to watch the repeated encounter as she lights up each time she is told that the baby in front of her is her granddaughter. What is really sad is that she keeps forgetting the baby but it was good that she always feels happy whenever she’s ‘introduced’ to the child.
Isn’t this sweet?
What is Alzheimer’s Disease?
It is an irreversible condition that affects the brain, slowly destroying memory and damaging thinking skills.
It eventually leads to dementia, with the affected person not just forgetting about his/her own identity and loved ones but also leading to child-like behavior such as no longer knowing how to care for his/her self and hygiene needs.
Old Woman Tried To Extort $15,000 From Highschool Boys Who Helped Her When She Tripped
Gone were the days when kind-hearted people who are selfless enough to help other people are abundant. Today, because of a lot of modus operandi and scammers, people are reluctant to help.
Some are afraid that they will be exploited or that they will be extorted from. Just like this unfortunate incident that happened in China where three high school boys helped an old lady who fell.
Unfortunately, instead of being thankful and going her way, the old lady accused them of tripping her. Worse is that she started asking money from them to buy medicine. The amount started from 50 Yuan ($7.55) until it gradually increased to 100,000 Yuan ($15,108). This is to pay her medical bills according to her.
The old lady refused to let them go according to World of Buzz. Luckily, two college students passed by the commotion and decided to help the innocent boys.
There was a CCTV near the scene and they were able to obtain a footage wherein it can be seen that the old lady tripped and the boys had nothing to do with her fall.
Even when the CCTV footage was seen, the old lady refused to let the boys go and was determined to get some money from them. The boys had no choice but to file a police report.
The incident was shared on Chinese social media where netizens got mad at the lady saying that people like this are the ones stopping other people from being nice and helpful.
“It’s people like this who make it hard for us to be kind and helpful. Next time if you see such a situation, you will think twice before helping them.”
Despite the unfortunate incident, aren’t you glad that there are still some people who are willing to help without second thoughts?
There may be some bad people who will try to extort people, but don’t ever let your fear stop you from being nice and helpful.
