The Last Ice Bucket Challenge You Need To See — And You Really Should See It

Sometimes we forget why we are doing things. Take dumping cold buckets of water on our heads, for example. You've probably seen a lot of videos of your friends doing it this week. Well, here's a really important reminder of the reason we're doing it. Next week the Internet will get back to its regularly scheduled cat videos, I promise. So sit back, grab a tissue, and let's remember the reason behind the fun.

I started this video after the actual challenge, so if you'd like to see the guy get covered with freezing water, go ahead and restart it at the beginning. When I saw this video, I felt it needed to be shared. If you feel the same, feel free to pass it along. And if you want to donate to ALS in his name, I would totally click here.

UPDATE: Thanks to your support, Anthony is going to be on the season premiere of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” this Monday, Sept. 8, 2014, to spread even more awareness about the terrifying disease (and its underfunded research). We want everyone to tune in and support Anthony.

The great thing about American democracy is the separation of powers. The federal government has rights, states have rights, counties have rights, cities have rights, and we, as people, have rights, too.

Heck, even animals have some rights in the good ol' U S of A.

The president of the United States is not a king or a dictator so a team of U.S. mayors, led by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, are asking to go over his head to negotiate directly at next month's UN climate change conference in Santiago, Chile.

It can take time to feel comfortable in a new home, especially if you think there are scary monsters lurking about, which is why six-year-old Hayden Williams had trouble sleeping in his new room.

Hayden used to share a room with his 15-year-old sister, but when the Eldridge, Iowa family moved, each kid got their very own. While his sister was excited for the change, Hayden was having a hard time adjusting to the new arrangement.

"My little man has been having severe anxiety since we moved into the new house…I've tried everything under the sun to get him to sleep in his own room. Nothing is helping," his mom, Amanda Williams, wrote on Facebook.
