They were asked 1 question, and it stopped their fun. It's adorable and a great lesson.

Kids are awesome, and they look to us for guidance, rules, and leadership.

Their brains are always developing, taking in information, and forming opinions about everything so they can grow up and become awesome adults.


What we teach kids today is what they'll use to lead us someday.

I don't know about you, but when I pass on the leadership torch to future generations, I want super-smart, innovative, educated kids steering our ship. Because, selfishly, I want to live it up as an old man and worry about nothing in my retirement.

Filmmakers at SoulPancake have the same idea and talked to a gaggle of tiny tykes and asked four questions. Three of the questions made the kids super happy, like these two: "Do you like school?" and "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

SoulPancake also asked the kids what they liked about preschool.


"Learning music."

"Making projects!"

Last, they asked, "Did you know half the kids in America don't get to go to preschool?" That's when their mood changed, and they became adorably shocked and unhappy.


Preschool sets the stage for a better future for all of us.

Attending preschool is correlated with kids who graduate high school; graduates have a higher success rate in finding jobs, becoming innovators, and contributing to our tax base so that we can grow to be a stronger society. So, when you hear people dis the idea of preschool, remind them that you and I want to retire with ease. We want future generations to take care of us and maybe even get us out of some of the messes we've put on ourselves.

It was a mere three weeks ago that President Biden announced that the U.S. would have enough vaccine supply to cover every adult American by the end of July. At the time, that was good news.

Today, he's bumped up that date by two full months.

That's great news.

In his announcement to the nation, Biden outlined the updated process for getting the country immunized against COVID-19.

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

It's amazing to consider just how quickly the world has changed over the past 11 months. If you were to have told someone in February 2020 that the entire country would be on some form of lockdown, nearly everyone would be wearing a mask, and half a million people were going to die due to a virus, no one would have believed you.

Yet, here we are.

PPE masks were the last thing on Leah Holland of Georgetown, Kentucky's mind on March 4, 2020, when she got a tattoo inspired by the words of a close friend.

Julia Tinetti, 31, and Cassandra Madison, 32, first met in 2013 while working at The Russian Lady, a bar in New Haven, Connecticut, and the two immediately hit it off.

"We started hanging out together. We went out for drinks, dinner," Julia told "Good Morning America." "I thought she was cool. We hit it off right away," added Cassandra

The two also shared a strong physical resemblance and matching tattoos of the flag of the Dominican Republic. They had a bond that was so unique, even their coworkers thought there must be something more happening.
