This morning Allie introduced us to a 21-year-old Jack Higgins who is a beloved student at Carmel High School in New York. He is autistic, nonverbal, and sensitive to noise. He also just graduated from High School. His parents Barbara and Patrick didn’t want him to miss such an important milestone. So they contacted the school’s principal, Lou Riolo, to try and work something out. What happened at the graduation ceremony was very special. Before calling Higgins to the stage to receive his diploma Principal Riolo asked the crowd for only a quiet golf clap. The students responded by giving Higgins a silent standing ovation. The students knew that this was the best way that he and his family would be able to enjoy this moment. This was Allie’s GREAT NEWS!!! Click here to read the entire story.

Jensen brought our attention to Harley. Harley was only a puppy when he ran away from his home in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, just after Christmas in 2017 The burglars broke in and left the doors open making it easy for him to escape. Harley’s owner Jake Hennessy searched search for the mastiff - shar-pei mix locally and even posted to a lost and found pet Facebook group. Almost two years later Harley was found roaming the streets and looking for food in a neighboring city Lenora almost 175 miles away almost a 3-hour drive. A volunteer picked him up and was checked out by a veterinarian last weekend and thanks to the dog’s chip implant they were able to contact his owner. This was Jensen’s GREAT NEWS!!!

Today Bean told us about 45-year-old Andrea Benedetto. Benedetto was celebrating his recent wedding at an Italian beach with his new husband and friends. They were floating on an inflatable unicorn when he fell into the water and because of a medical condition could not move his limbs. A strong wind blew the inflatable away. His husband did everything he could to help keep his head above water, but Benedetto began to drown. Cries for help were heard by Lifeguards who rushed to help. One person on the beach who also heard the cries. It was 37-year-old Filippo Magnini. Magnini was in Italy's 4x200m freestyle relay team which won bronze in the 2004 Athens Olympics. He was also world champion in the 100m freestyle in 2005, and 2007 when he tied for gold. He dove into the water and reached Benedetto quickly to help save his life. This was Bean’s GREAT NEWS!!!
