Back in February, Linda Whitaker published this touching video of her parents, but it has only exploded in popularity recently.

While sick in the hospital, her father asked to sing a song with the love of his life for the past 66 years. As the video begins he says to his wife, “Come closer up here, this is special to me.”

They then grasp each other’s hand, and begin to sing the cheerful timeless classic You Are My Sunshine

As they end the song and recite the lyrics, “You’ll never know dear how much I love you,” they peer into each other’s eyes, and their love for each other truly becomes palpable. 

After they finish, an off camera person says what over 250,000 viewers no doubt thought after watching the tender clip.

“Now I need a tissue.”

While America and other Western countries are hyper focused on the debate over same sex marriage legislation, many people overlook the fact that 76 countries in the world still criminalize people of the LGBT community. 

Around the globe in 2013, gays are still treated as second class citizens, with some even facing the death penalty.

UN HUMAN RIGHTS posted this commercial, titled The Riddle, last week to expose the injustice and violence millions of LGBT people endure with the hopes that one day they won’t have to.

Last summer, Kim Clark and her team created a series entirely based on this powerful interview, called Big Questions. But only has the video gone viralviral, amassing over 350,000 views in just one day after appearing on Reddit.

Homeless man Ronald Davis discusses the trials and tribulations of being homeless in Chicago. He truly puts things in perspective when he tells the interviewers how he can’t get a job without a phone, and can’t get a phone without a job. 

“I’ve had people walk past me and say, ‘get a job bum.’ I’m not a bum. I’m a human being,” says Ronald as he holds back tears. 

Now, it seems Ronald is the new homeless star of the web, just like Ted Williams, aka The Man With The Golden Voice. The story has already been picked up by Gawker and HuffingtonPost

Osartist published this heartwarming video over three years ago, but it has only gone viral now after being posted on Reddit. Years ago, this very large and very special family adopted a girl from out of state. 

Unfortunately, her foster sister whom she had grown very close to was ineligible for adoption. After waiting years, the foster sister had finally become an adult, outgrowing the foster system, so the family thought ‘better late than never’ and brought her into their ever growing family.
