Girl caught on tape refilling an empty Halloween bowl with her own candy

She did a good deed while she thought no one was watching.

Give and take on Halloween, means every kid gets candy.

Legendary basketball coach John Wooden once remarked, "The true test of a man's character is what he does when no one is watching." If Wooden’s adage is true, then a video of two children trick-or-treating shows they have impeccable character.

Q13 Fox Seattle reports that 12-year-old Abby and her younger brother Levi were trick-or-treating in Waconia, Minnesota, on Halloween. When they arrived at Kristina Kallman’s house they realized the treat bowl she left out was empty. Abby appears to be dressed as a superhero and Levi was a scary clown.


Kallman left the bowl so kids in the neighborhood could get some candy while she was out at a Halloween party. Either she had more trick-or-treaters than expected or some kids helped themselves to too much candy.

Instead of walking away from the porch feeling dejected, Abby replenished the bowl for the next group of kids by filling it with some of their own candy. Footage of the generous act was caught on Kallman’s doorbell camera.

"Wow, special children there! I'd have to guess this behavior starts with the family. You young lady are destined for greatness and all those around you will be blessed by your friendship," a YouTube user named Speed Bump wrote. "Bless these children, they deserve an extra treat for their kindness," Harley Vampey-Sis Quinn added.

After the video went viral, the kids’ mom shared Abby’s thoughts on what she did. Her response was simple, “Well I didn't want other kids to not have candy." If more adults thought that way, the world would be such a better place.

Tyler Adams expertly handles Iranian reporter's question

Reporters are supposed to ask the right questions to get to the truth but sometimes it seems sports reporters ask questions to throw you off your game. There's no doubt that this Iranian reporter who was questioning Tyler Adams, the US soccer team captain at the press conference during the World Cup had an agenda that didn't involve getting to the truth.

It's not clear if the questions were designed to throw the young player off of his game or if the goal was embarrassment. It really is hard to tell, but Adams handled the unexpectedly harsh encounter with intelligence and poise when some may have found it justified for him to get angry.

Phil Collins and George Harrison

Beatle George Harrison was pigeon-holed as the "Quiet Beatle," but the youngest member of the Fab Four had an acerbic, dry sense of humor that was as sharp as the rest of his bandmates.

He gave great performances in the musical comedy classics, "A Hard Days Night" and "Help!" while holding his own during The Beatles' notoriously anarchic press conferences. After he left the band in 1970, in addition to his musical career, he would produce the 1979 Monty Python classic, "The Life of Brian."

"Time is the one thing we cannot increase.”

Over his seven years as host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah brought us laughter and valuable insights, even with a pandemic and political upheaval. He made such a positive mark that the announcement of his departure from the show came as bittersweet news to fans.

During an interview with Hoda Kotb of “Today,” Trevor Noah gave further explanation to his personal decision to leave, and in typical Noah fashion, it touched on something universal in the process.

“I realized during the pandemic,” he told Kotb, “everyone talks about a ‘work-life balance.’ But that almost creates the idea that your work and your life are two separate things. When in fact, I came to realize during the pandemic that it’s just a ‘life-life balance.’ It’s just your life.”
