Medal Of Silver. Heart Of Gold.

Maria Andrejczyk is a 25 year old woman from Poland who competes throwing the javelin in track and field competitions, including the Olympics.

In 2016, at the Rio Olympics, Andrejczyk missed medaling by a mere 2 centimeters – less than an inch.

Then tragedy struck.

In 2017, she had a shoulder injury. In 2018, Andrejczyk was diagnosed with bone cancer.

She fought back from that and qualified for the Tokyo Olympics.

We have to wonder what she was thinking and feeling when she won the silver medal. From the heartache of not being on the podium by less than an inch, and then hearing the “c” word used in conjunction with her, the moment must have been incredible.

Returning home, the silver medal winner displayed a heart of gold.

Singing Through The Tears – Even Now.

Back in November 2019, Roy Fred Blackburn was eating a pizza in a local pizzeria called Pizza Street in Olathe, Kansas.

But this would not be like any pizza other pizza for Blackburn.

It was most likely his last.

Blackburn was in a hospice at the time but for Veterans Day, he decided to venture forth to eat some pizza with his wife.

Enter some students from Mission Trail Middle School. The kids were part of a chorus that was heading to local senior citizen’s home to sing for the residents there.

The chorus’ director, one Teresa Murray Posey noticed that Blackburn was wearing a Navy hat.

Blackburn had served in the Navy for six years.

Murray Posey had an idea.

After a couple of days of writing how people who are supposed to represent it actually hate it, leave it to citizens of the Lone Star State to set things partially right.

A Sweet Way To Catch A Burglar.

Dominic Kolp

Allow us to introduce you to 35 year old Dominic Kolp of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Kolp was arrested by the police for breaking into the Canfora-Lakeside Bakery. The break-in came to light when an employee came in to open the shop and noticed the cash drawer was missing.

The police were called and they came out to investigate. As part of their investigation, they took the security camera video, digitized it and came up with an image of the person they were looking for.

Officers reviewed interior and exterior surveillance video. The complaint says exterior video “shows a male subject wearing a cap carrying a plastic milk crate checking the side door of the bakery, and then moving around to the north side of the building” around 12:40 a.m. The suspect “re-appears, now wearing gloves and a facemask.” The complaint says he successfully removed a lockbox from a wall. “The suspect tries a key in the metal security door but cannot get the door to open. The subject then tries the key in the side door, and enters the business through the side door.”

According to the complaint, interior video shows the suspect removing the cash drawer from the register. The video “shows the suspect’s face with a high degree of clarity.”

Here is where it gets good….
