Siblings Reunite For The First Time After Crash Killed Their Parents And Baby Sister

The Clemens family was driving in Texas when they were involved in a horrific head-on crash. The parents, Jim and Karisa and the couple’s 2-month-old baby girl, Juliana, passed away shortly after they were taken to the hospital.

Their other kids, Angela, Zachery, Wyatt, and Nicholas all survived but were in critical condition. 8 year old Angela was sustained severe head trauma, which left her in a coma for about a week. Both her legs were also broken.

Zachary ,5, broke his back and sustained several internal injuries. 4 year old Wyatt suffered a number of strokes and was left paralyzed on his left side.

2 year old Nicholas was taken to the hospital for his injuries and released a few days later into the care of his aunt, Teresa Burrell.

When Angela came out of the coma, her aunt says the first person she asked to see was her brother. “So we knew she had remembrance of her family. It’s really hard with brain damage to know where you’re headed. But we are very hopeful from where we were a couple of weeks ago.” Burrell said.

The one thing that gave everyone a little hope was the moment the three siblings reunited for the first time since the horrific car crash. Burrell said, “It was what they really needed. They just are grieving and were comforting each other.”

As Zachary started to get better, he started to show signs of depression. So to cheer him up, the kids organized an ice cream party for him. “They sang silly songs and it was like night and day. He just improved. All three of them being together just lifted his spirits. He just cheered up.” Burrell explained.

With time and lots of financial help from a GoFundMe campaign that raised over $300,000, the siblings recovery went a little more smoother.

“So many good people, from all different kinds of faiths, have united their prayers on behalf of these children, and we’ve felt it. We felt it as a family and we’ve definitely seen it in these children. We’ve just seen it. It’s just been a miracle and it’s been amazing.” Burrell said.

The children are now living with their grandmother, Susan Skillicorn and are set to join a new school this summer.

“We were visiting, I want to say a month and a half or so ago … they were running around but trying not to run around. There was just lots of laughter and lots of happiness. There’s also sad moments of course, they miss their parents, they’re gonna need to have counseling — but their future looks bright, they’re doing as well as can be as expected.” Burrell said.

Female Chief Rises To Power, Annuls 850 Child Marriages And Sends Girls Back To School

Published

Theresa Kachindamoto, senior chief in the Dedza District in Central Malawi, is certainly a force to reckon with. She has not only been able to establish a new law to prevent child marriage, she is also very dedicated to enforcing it!

From the moment Kachindamoto became senior chief, she immediately set about ending the practise of child marriage among her people.

Though illegal, the practice has been culturally accepted in the area. Many families, usually out of financial need, had consented to having their children married off very young.

According to Al Jazeera, Kachindamoto decided to take a stand and made 50 of her sub-chiefs sign an agreement to end child marriage in her area of authority. “I told them, ‘Whether you like it or not, I want these marriages to be terminated.’” She said.

But that was not all, Kachindamoto made the leaders annul any existing underage unions, and send all of the children involved back to school and swore to dismiss any chiefs that continue to allow these controversial practices. “First it was difficult, but now people are understanding,” she told Al Jazeera.

To ensure all children have a chance to go to school, Kachindamoto operates a secret network of parents to keep an eye on others. And when parents can’t afford to pay school fees, she’ll pay them herself or find someone else who can.

“I don’t want child marriages. They must go to school. No child should be found at home or doing household chores during school time.” Chief Kachindamoto told U.N. Women.

In June alone, she annulled more than 300 child marriages, according to the organization. And over the past three years, the figure reaches close to 850.

She also abolished “kusasa fumbi”, a cleansing ritual that requires girls as young as seven to go to sexual initiation camps in order to train them to perform sex acts to please their future husbands.

Kachindamoto received death threats for her work, but simply said: “I don’t care, I don’t mind. I’ve said whatever, we can talk, but these girls will go back to school.”

Malawi has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world, with an alarming one in two girls married under age 18. Marrying underage negatively affects girls’ development, interrupting their education and putting them at higher risk of domestic violence and early pregnancy.

“I talk to the parents, I tell them: if you educate your girls you will have everything in the future.” she said to U.N. Women last year.

If only they had told him, Mom, I would still be alive.

My breath is getting shorter, Mom.  I’m becoming very scared.

I have one last question, Mom, before I say good bye.
I didn’t drink and drive,  so why am I the one to die?

Las Vegas police have released a shocking security video showing a woman pushing an elderly man off a city bus after he asked her to be nice to other passengers. The video shows 74-year-old Serge Fournier landing face-first on a sidewalk east of downtown on March 21 after Cadesha Michelle Bishop is seen aggressively pushing him off the bus.

At the time of the incident, the 74 year old refused medical treatment, before pain from the injuries he sustained from the fall forced him to go to a hospital later that night. Sadly, he died April 23.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Homicide Section, Fournier had asked the 25 year old woman to be ‘nicer’ to fellow passengers after she’d been heard yelling and cursing at other people in the bus.

In the video, a woman can be seen talking to Fournier as he walked past carrying a walker and heading towards the bus door. As he was about to alight, Bishop appears behind him and pushes him with both hands off the bus smashing his face on the concrete ground.

Speaking to KLAS-TV, Fournier’s neighbor, Jeffrey Bingham, said, “He wasn’t able to eat. He was in a lot of pain, crushed hip. I put my hand up to his face and I said, ‘We got you covered.'”.

“And then he kinda went… he said… ‘God bless you,’ and that was the last thing he said to me.” Bingham added about his last moments with Fournier.

Please keep the families involved in your prayers and pray for this world we live in. Its so heartbreaking that this can happen to someone for asking someone to be nice and a little kinder to other people.
