It is always a heartwarming sight when people come together to share kindness. And this story from Clements High School in Athens is enough to get anyone shedding a happy tear.

In October last year, a teacher Troy Roger lost his 11.5-year-old Golden Retriever named Chip. His students noticed how sad he was, and they decided to surprise him with a new puppy.

The 8-week-old puppy was a total charmer, and Troy Roger couldn’t have been happier. And in an awesome gesture of his own, Troy decided to make a donation to the senior fund from his pocket. As the saying goes, what goes around comes around. Good deeds for everyone.

Singing their hearts out

Every year, the Kentucky Music Educators Association’s All-State Choir gather in the atrium of the Hyatt Regency Louisville. The choir is made up of students, and they sing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

This year, they decided to give it a little twist. Instead of singing from the atrium, they decided to line up on the balconies on several floors.

This year's performance took place on the 9th of February by 11 pm. So far it has gotten about 3million views. And thousands of people continue to share the video.
