from The Blaze:

78-year-old Tona Herndon was laying flowers at the grave of her recently buried husband of 60 years, when the unspeakable happened — Herndon was mugged by a male attacker.

After TheBlaze highlighted the incident in an article, the story went viral and stirred outrage across the nation. However, it’s conclusion will instead surely warm your heart.

Enter 15-year-old Christian Lunsford who was watching television when he saw his father’s mugshot appear on the screen as the man who committed the heinous act of robbing Herndon.

Lunsford told CBS News he immediately recognized his estranged dad “in detail” and felt obligated to do what he could to make things right.

Via Fox News:

Fourth grade students in Vermilion Parish, La. were given a homework assignment that included words like “Po Pimp” and “mobstaz,” but school officials said the worksheet was age appropriate based on an education website affiliated with Common Core education standards.

“I try to instill values in my son,” parent Brittney Badeaux told Fox News. “My goal is for him to ultimately to become a great man, a family man, a well-rounded man. And now my son wants to know what a pimp is.”

Badeaux was helping her 9-year-old son with his homework when she heard him say the words “Po Pimp” and “mobstaz.”

“I couldn’t believe it at first – hearing him read it to me,” she told Fox News. “So I looked at the paper and read the entire article. It was filled with Ebonics.”
