NBA Star Steph Curry Stops For Grieving Boy. What He Does Next Leaves Entire Stadium In Tears

Sports stars are some of the biggest celebrities in our world today. Millions of people look up to them, seeing them as their heroes.

Unfortunately, they don’t always live up to the expectations we place on them. They act in violent or offensive ways that knock them off the pedestals where we have placed them.

Thankfully, there are still some athletes who live up to the hype and are committed to living lives worthy of being looked up to.

Stephen Curry is one such player. The NBA star is known not only for his prowess on the court, but for his kindness and integrity.

Never was that more on display than during a recent game between Curry’s team, the Golden State Warriors, and the Dallas Mavericks.

Last week, Bruce Harris, the brother of Mavericks guard Devin Harris, was killed in a car accident. The shocking death rocked their family and Harris decided not to play in Monday’s game as he took time to grieve.

Though Harris did not play, his nine-year-old nephew Brayden did attend the game with him. The team came around him as he worked to process his father’s passing, bringing the young boy back into their locker room and showing him kindness and compassion.

But it was what Curry, a member of the opposing team, did that really had people talking.

Knowing that Brayden looked up to Curry, the star’s younger brother, Seth, who plays for the Mavericks, as well as Warriors guard Shaun Livingston, arranged a meet-up between the two of them before the game started.

As Brayden stood on the sidelines with his uncle, Curry walked over and wrapped his arms around the young boy, seeming to console him and pray with him.

As Brayden stood on the sidelines with his uncle, Curry walked over and wrapped his arms around the young boy, seeming to console him and pray with him.

When asked about the emotional moment after the game, Curry said it was hard to know what to say to Brayden.

“It’s obviously sometimes hard to find the right words to say in that situation,” Curry said. “It’s a tough blow to the family. For him at that age, I can’t imagine what he’s going through. But the best thing I can say is lean on his family and to give him that strength to get through this tough time.”

“Nobody can tell him how to feel,” he added. “He just needs to allow himself to get through the best he can with his family at his side and lean on them for strength and support. Hopefully they’ll be there for them. That’s the best I can tell him.”

Our hearts go out to this young boy and the rest of the Harris family as they grieve this tragic loss. We are thankful that in times like these, there are everyday heroes like Curry who can step in and show the love and compassion they so desperately need.

We all have a little good inside us. Share it today!

Teens Bully Boy At Burger King. When Stranger Talks To Manager, Response Leaves Him Speechless

You wouldn’t normally expect a fast food commercial to make you stop and think, but that’s exactly what a recent ad from Burger King did. To coincide with National Bullying Prevention Month, the burger joint released a commercial that will really make you rethink the way you respond to difficult situations when they come up around you.

Bullying has become a massive problem in our society. The advent of the internet and the ability to anonymously harass a person has led to an infuriating and heartbreaking increase in abuse. Some victims have even taken their own lives after becoming so overwhelmed by the cruelty of their peers.

In an effort to make people reconsider their priorities and encourage boldness in the face of abuse, Burger King decided to do a social experiment in one of their restaurants.

First, they sent some teen actors into the restaurant where a group of them appeared to be picking on a boy who was sitting alone. They called him names, took his food, kicked his chair out from under him, and did many more unconscionable things to him.

It was clear the other patrons in the restaurant were horrified by what was going on, but hardly any of them did anything about it. Despite the fact that most of the witnesses were adults and the bullies were teenagers, they just sat at their tables eyeing the abuse, unwilling to get themselves involved to protect the victim of the bullying.

Little did they know that Burger King had actually set up two forms of bullying that day. In addition to the teens bullying the lone boy, the employees also began to “bully” the burgers they were serving. Before wrapping them up and serving them, they smashed the burgers and made a mess out of them.

The customers’ responses to their “bullied” food versus the way they responded to the actual bullying are very telling. Click below to see it for yourself:

Thankfully, there were some people who stood up for the bullied teen, but the sad reality is that while 95 percent of people spoke up about their messed up burgers, only 12 percent were willing to stand up to the bullies.

It’s a sad world we live in when people will speak up for themselves but not for those in need. Hopefully, many people will see this ad and be inspired by the few people who did stand up for the young boy.

Every one of us can make a difference. It just takes one person and one kind act to change someone’s life forever.
