Until a catastrophic car accident changed their lives, Massachusetts residents Marcia and Harold Rhodes didn’t realize how much they would come to need and value the community around them.

Before the crash that left Marcia a paraplegic, when he was a technology consultant and his wife an antiques collector, they had never thought about such issues. They didn’t understand how much could be done to help the people in their town of Milford.

Now they are giving back, funding playgrounds for kids with special needs, and helping families coping with disabilities.

On Jan. 9, 2002, a 40-ton tractor-trailer crashed into the rear of Marcia’s car when traffic was stopped by a police officer fo

This pit bull's snuggly disposition just broke down basically any stereotype about the breed.

This week, a 2007 video of a pit bull named Sharky nuzzling up against his itty-bitty chick friend has experienced a viral resurgence on Facebook, winning the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.

"What a sweet, beautiful dog," wrote one Facebooker Friday.

"Awww so adorable!" exclaimed another.

Pit bulls get a bad rap, but the dogs' reputation seems to stem from many a misconception. For instance, despite rumors to the contrary, pits don't actually have locking jaws, many have been credited with saving human lives, and even pits that have been trained to fight can be -- and have been -- su

This joyful reunion was a long time coming.

Earlier this month, the family of Bailey, a 10-year-old Yorkshire terrier, couldn't believe it when the long-lost pup was found six years after he disappeared from their home in Austin, Texas. Bailey was discovered roaming the streets of Indianapolis when a local resident noticed him and delivered him to veterinary clinic Post Road Vets, reported CNN.

The crash of a bus and a tractor-trailor that left four Texas college softball players dead and 15 others injured is "being investigated like a homicide," police said today, as officials try to piece together what happened.

The early indication is that the tractor-trailer crossed over Interstate 35, into the southbound lanes, near the Oklahoma-Texas border, and struck a bus owned by North Central Texas College that was carrying the team back to campus after a game Friday evening.

"We just know that the semi impacted the bus and the bus was traveling southbound on the interstate when the collision occurred," Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Ronnie Hampton said.

"Right now, it's being in

Two twin girls dressed in green and a darling blonde boy are seen in the cutest weather report, arguing whether it is actually "raining" or "sprinkling" outside but never bothering to look out the window.

Seems this happens all around us these days.

The video was uploaded to Youtube by mother Tara Willmott who tries to tell a boy that it's raining, but he prefers his mother's opinion.

The cute blonde boy becomes increasingly frustrated as both girls begin to gang up on him and one lightly pokes him in the chest.

A bit hurt by the turn of events, the boy whimpers: "Oww….you poked my heart."

This is near the end of the video so don't miss it. One of the girls comes to his aid,

Never underestimate the potential kindness of total strangers.

Chrisi Kemp, a 37-year-old bartender in Wake Forest, North Carolina, learned this lesson unexpectedly on Sept. 11 when a local man walked into One Whirled Café where she works and ordered a few drinks, reported Today.com. After they struck up a casual conversation and he settled his bill of $14.01, he left Kemp a $1,000 tip and insisted she keep it.

"I looked down and was shocked," she told Today.com. "I said, 'You don’t have to do that.' And he said, 'Do you need it? Well, then keep it,' and he pushed the bill back to me ... I didn’t know if I was going to cry or what."

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Three young men, ages 16 and 17, were in an SUV, speeding down a highway in Salt Lake City last Thursday, according to Fox13. In an attempt to avoid cars that were stopped at a traffic light, the driver swerved around the other vehicles and crashed into the Jordan River, with the truck landing on its roof, Deseret News reported.

"I saw it. The vehicle exploded in front of me right there, just pieces and parts. It's like nothing you would see in your entire life," witness Brian Adams told Fox13 of the wreck.

Strangers then jumped into the river, flipped the SUV over and helped save the teens.

“We have three teenage boys that went to the hospital. It would have

It wasn't the crown that stole the spotlight at a North Texas high school's homecoming ceremony last week, but rather the friendship between three very special young women.

Anahi Alvarez was named Grand Prairie High School's Homecoming Queen on Friday, but the 17-year-old didn't bask in the limelight for even a moment. That's because she and her friend Naomi Martinez, who had also been nominated for the honor, had promised each other that if they won they'd give the crown to a very important person in their lives: their best friend, Lillian Skinner.

According to NBC Dallas-Fort Worth, Skinner -- a beloved student who is known for her cheerful energy and kind spirit -- had been bullied

Amanda Jaramillo is happy today for what at first might seem like an odd reason: She decided not to attend a sold-out One Direction concert in Phoenix Tuesday night, even though she's a huge fan and earned tickets by scouring Albuquerque in a four-day-long, city-wide scavenger hunt.

Instead, Jaramillo -- who could have sold her hard-won tickets for a sizable profit -- called CBS 5 in Phoenix and asked if they could find someone at the local children's hospital who should attend in her place.

That's how Estefania Canales, a 12-year-old girl who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in May, ended up in Jaramillo's seats. Canales told CBS 5 she's always been a big One Direction fan, but knew

One of the best ways to earn a person's trust is to lend them a helping hand when they least expect it and need it most.

While Kim Washington hesitated when police officers approached her parked car in a St. Paul, Minnesota, neighborhood earlier this month, she is grateful for their eventual interaction. The 46-year-old had been living in Florida with her boyfriend until recently, when she decided to flee from domestic violence occurring in her home, reported KMSP. Washington packed her three children, two grandchildren and their necessary belongings in her SUV, and returned to Minnesota, her home state, in search of a fresh start.

Upon arrival, the family of six remained in the SUV be
