Mom Gives Up Her Diamond Ring So Her Son Can Go To School!

diamond ring given up for sons schooling

This is equal parts inspiring and baffling.

When Ohio mom Tamika Hamilton's son needed to go to summer school, she ran into a bit of a speed bump:

She didn't have the $400 tuition she needed.

Tamika wouldn't let her son miss summer school, so she went to a school board official and said she didn't have the money upfront.

That's when Superintendent Charles Keenan told her that if she had something worth $400 the school district could hold it as collateral until she repaid the $400 bill.

hero bus driver sacrificed her own life to save ten year old student

This is sad and yet inspiring at the same time. 

A 51-year-old school bus driver in Akron, Ohio, has been deemed a hero by police after she saved a ten-year-old student's life. 

The awful incident happened during a routine fire drill as the students practiced exiting the bus from the emergency back door exit. When the last student hopped off, the bus began to roll backwards, and the bus driver, Laura Zborowski, was able to get the student out of the way but was unable to save herself.

Math Teacher Beats The Odds & Wins 1 Million Dollar Jackpot On Wheel Of Fortune!

| Filed under: TV NewsEtc.Inspiration

Congratulations are in order!

Math teacher Sarah Manchester just won a million dollars on Wheel of Fortune!

As part of the syndicated game show's 32nd season premiere, Sarah beat out two other teacher's to play in the bonus round.

But winning the million wasn't as simple as figuring out a 12-letter phrase.

Sarah had to land on the million dollar wedge during regular play, never go bankrupt after that, win the entire game, land on the million dollar wedge (again!), and then solve her bonus round clue!

You don't have to be a math teacher to understand those odds.

Sarah's $1,017,490.00 total makes her just the third person to win the million dollar jackpot in the show's entire run.

It's nice to see someone actually win America's Game for once, unlike these unlucky people!

Plus, we guess Sarah can now buy all of the vowels she's ever wanted.

Simpsons Co-Creator's Terminal Cancer Diagnosis Made Him A Better Man! This Tragic News Oddly Did Some Good!

Sam Simon is a gazillionaire.

Sure, that's not a real word, but the man co-created The Simpsons and co-produced The Drew Carey Show, so he literally does have hundreds of millions.

Unfortunately, Sam was given a cancer diagnosis with only 3-6 months to live. Fortunately, that was back in 2012.

Since then, the stalwart animal lover has been using his fortune to help those who can't help themselves - animals. In addition to doing things like saving horses, he also has funded several wildlife sanctuaries and various other animal causes.

And to think, he used to be known as such an angry guy by his co-workers.

His ex-wife, actress Jennifer Tilly, has been by his side since his diagnosis. She says the change is remarkable:
