Wholesome Story Of Toronto Immigrant Nav Bhatia Is A Reminder Of How Sports Are The Great Equalizer

Toronto, the capital of Ontario, is the most statistically multicultural city in the world. While there are probably millions of heartwarming success stories, the tale of Nav Bhatia, who immigrated to the city from India in the 80's, is especially touching. After almost 25 years of never missing a game, he's been given the official title of Toronto Raptors Superfan and community ambassador. His presence at their basketball games, and court-side seats, have been well-documented, but until now, his amazing story has been pretty much under wraps. That changed when correspondent Mohammad Lila shared Bhatia's saga in a touching Twitter thread that we're going to be remembering for years to come.

On Sunday at 3 in the morning Mark Ross was notified that his sister, Eliza Fletcher (15 years old) had been killed in a car crash. Inside Edition reports that Trooper J. Davis ended up pulling their car over for speeding over 100mph; and that when Davis determined that Ross had an outstanding warrant and that his license had been suspended, he ended up towing their car.

Fast forward a bit, and Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robinson showed up and saved the day!



Ross also went on to share some texts he'd exchanged with his sister mere weeks ago. May she rest in peace.

Cards Against Humanity, rather infamous for its mildly offensive card game, shared an open letter to its website for the holiday season that pulls on all the heart strings.

"This year, 150,000 people signed up to receive Eight Sensible Gifts for Hannukah from us.

Like many of the physical products we buy, most of these gifts were made in China. This is something a lot of companies don't like to draw attention to, and as a result Americans often don't see the labor that goes into the things they buy. But we've always viewed the way our stuff is made as a part of who we are.

Our printer in China has grown with us from a small business to a huge operation, and it's important to us to go above and beyond our obligation to the workers who make our game. While our factory provides excellent wages and working conditions, Chinese working conditions are generally more strict. This year, we used the money from one day of our holiday promotion to give our workers something very uncommon in China: a paid vacation.

The printer didn't have any formal procedures for paid vacations, so we bought 100% of the factory's capacity and paid them to produce nothing for a week, giving the people who make Cards Against Humanity an unexpected chance to visit family or do whatever they pleased.

This doesn't undo the ways that all of us profit from unfair working conditions around the world, but it's a step in the right direction. Below yo'll find some thank-you notes and vacation photos from that factory staff shared with us."

Here's your daily reminder to always treat other with kindness, because you never know what they might be going through.

Paige Yore uploaded this video of herself to Facebook, describing a trip to Walmart that's enough to bring just about anybody to tears. Yore was in line at the store when a woman ahead of her began yelling at a young cashier who was visibly struggling at work. She stepped in and asked the woman to step aside, when the young cashier stepped out from behind the checkstand and hugged Yore. He confided in her, saying "Ma’am, my mom just committed suicide this morning… and I have to work because I have to pay our rent, and I have to pay our bills. And I don’t even have a mom anymore. And this lady is just yelling at me."

The video has been viewed more than 14 million times on Facebook over the weekend, and Yore is now trying to track the young man down in response to the huge outpouring of help and hope the video has received. If found, Yore hopes she and the internet will be able to help him through this trying time.

As Yore so perfectly put it, this experience is a reminder that "ou never know who's fighting what battle. Watch what you say."

Make sure to turn on the English captions.

In most east Asian households married people rarely refer to each other by their actual names. Instead they use designations for the role in the family. This is why it is so strange when each woman hears their name.
