This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
This is incredible!
While most 8-year-olds are playing with toys, Harli Jordean spends his time making a fortune by selling marbles.
The young entrepreneur, who lives in the UK, turned his love of of the small colored glass orbs into a lucrative money-making business where he gets as much as 500 pounds per item.
He brings in thousands of pounds per year and has orders being sent in from as far as the U.S.
His mother Tina, who calls him "The Marble King," says:
"Harli has been obsessed with marbles ever since he was six. He used to sleep with them under his pillow. The last thing he talks about before going to bed is marbles and they are the first things he mentions in the morning…His obsession became so big we started calling him the Marble King."
Wow! Good for you, Harli! You are well on your way of becoming one of the youngest and richest self-starters around!
Kudos to you!
