8th grader’s impressions of Trump, Cruz, Obama, Clinton, and Sanders are still so accurate

Doing accurate impressions of one person is hard enough. So when Jack Aiello pulled off five dead-on impressions of five political figures in his Thomas Middle School graduation speech during the 2016 election, the crowd went wild. Seamlessly switching from Donald Trump to Ted Cruz to Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders, Aiello nailed their voice tones, inflections, and body language.


Perhaps the funniest part is when, as Bernie Sanders, he advocates for a "cinnamon roll revolution" to make the school's cinnamon rolls free for students. Just as hilarious today as it was four years ago. Watch and be amazed at this kid's talent:

And if you didn't get enough of Jack Aiello from his speech, check out his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Such a sweet, unassuming kid, and the way he can instantly jump into any one of these political figures' personas is incredible. Again, his Bernie Sanders is so accurate it's almost scary. You know if Jimmy Fallon is impressed by your impressions, you've definitely got a gift.

The fasting period of Ramadan observed by Muslims around the world is a both an individual and communal observance. For the individual, it's a time to grow closer to God through sacrifice and detachment from physical desires. For the community, it's a time to gather in joy and fellowship at sunset, breaking bread together after abstaining from food and drink since sunrise.

The COVID-19 pandemic has limited group gatherings in many countries, putting a damper on the communal part of Ramadan. But for one community in Barcelona, Spain, a different faith has stepped up to make the after sunset meal, known as Iftar, as safe as possible for the Muslim community.

According to Reuters, Father Peio Sanchez, Santa Anna's rector, has opened the doors of the Catholic church's open-air cloisters to local Muslims to use for breaking the Ramadan fast. He sees the different faiths coming together as a symbol of civic coexistence.

"I love being a nurse because I have the honor of connecting with my patients during some of their best and some of their worst days and making a difference in their lives is among the most rewarding things that I can do in my own life" - Tenesia Richards, RN

From ushering new life into the world to holding the hand of a patient as they take their last breath, nurses are everyday heroes that deserve our respect and appreciation.

To give back to this community that is always giving so selflessly to others, CeraVe® put out a call to nurses to share their stories for a chance to be featured in Heroes Behind the Masks, a digital content series shining a light on nurses who go above and beyond to provide safe and quality care to patients and their communities.

First up: Tenesia Richards, a labor and delivery nurse working in New York City who, in addition to her regular job, started a community outreach program in a homeless shelter that houses expectant mothers for up to one year postpartum.

Upon learning at a conference that black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women's health, Richards decided to take further action to help her community. She, along with a handful of fellow nurses, volunteered to provide antepartum, childbirth and postpartum education to the women living at the shelter. Additionally, they looked for other ways to boost the spirits of the residents, like throwing baby showers and bringing in guest speakers. When COVID-19 hit and in-person gatherings were no longer possible, Richards and her team found creative workarounds and created holiday care packages for the mothers instead.
