  • Elderly Man Buys Used VHS Player on eBay, Goes Viral for Tear-Jerking “Thank You” Note

    Now that the whole world has gone digital, VHS tapes feel like a relic from another time. But for the few people who still own a VCR, there's something magical about their tactile quality, the way you have to lift the lid and blow on the tape before watching the machine eat it, and the way the grainy footage crackles like a low fire.Nowadays, no one makes VHS players anymore, and they can only be bought on eBay. Which is probably why this heartwarming letter from an elderly gentleman on how much his VCR means to him is currently going viral.The 86-year-old wrote that he had recently found several VHS tapes and wanted to see what was on them when he realized he had nothing to play them on. So he went on eBay and found a great offer, and wrote the seller a beautiful letter about all of the memories it yielded once he remembered how to work it."I watched tapes of my retirement party from 25 years ago which I had never seen before," he wrote. "Jeez, we were young. Then a tape of my wedding with all the family and friends, many of which are no longer around. Then skiing trips, kids growing up, travels, and most importantly the gentle maturing of my family. Each one more than the last. All thanks to your generous selling of the VHS player."The letter was shared by Twitter user @OriginalYoni, and it got over 62,000 retweets in just two days. This person sold their VHS player on eBay and got a surprise letter in the mail: pic.twitter.com/oaLV8dUFqR - Yoni (@OriginalYoni) February 17, 2019The post inspired people to share other stories of times when selling something on eBay brought enormous happiness to a stranger's life. I put some action figures on eBay, a mom bought 2 but not the other 28 I had. She mssged to say her autistic son was excited to get them. She wished she could have bought more. I sent her all 30 of them, got a phone call, she thanked me and cried. We’re all friends to this day. - Damien (@DFacobbre) February 17, 2019And there's a lesson to be learned not just in cherishing your memories but also in taking the time out to thank people who have impacted your life in some small but meaningful way. For some reason.. this made my day. So sweet and thoughtful. Reminds me of a simpler time. We could probably all learn a little lesson here. Thanks for sharing. - Tim J (@IHATETIMJONES) February 18, 2019And for more heartwarming stories, read these personal testimonies from Twitter users on times when a random act of kindness from a stranger made all the difference.To discover more amazing secrets about living your best life, click here to follow us on Instagram!

  • Al Sharpton Says Jussie Smollett Should 'Face Accountability to the Maximum' If Attack Was Staged

    Al Sharpton said that “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett should face severe consequences if the truth ultimately shows he fabricated or staged the hate crime assault he says occurred in Chicago last month.“If it is found that Smollett and these gentlemen did in some way perpetrate something that is not true, they ought to face accountability to the maximum,” the MSNBC host and civil rights leader said during a Sunday airing of his program “Politics Nation.”Sharpton did not define what he meant by “maximum,” but filing a false policy report is a felony in Illinois and punishable by up to three years in prison, “GMA” reported earlier on Monday.Also Read: BBC Cameraman Attacked During Trump Rally in El Paso, Network Says (Video)The MSNBC host however clearly stated that he was waiting for all the facts to come in and that whoever was at fault should face justice.“I among many others when hearing of the reports said the reports were horrific and that we should come with all that we can come with in law enforcement to find out what happened and the guilty should suffer the maximum. I still maintain that,” he said. “Let’s not act like this is some left wing hoax that some are saying on social media. President Trump called this horrible and he’s certainly not a left winger.”Also Read: Police Think Jussie Smollett Paid Men to Attack Him, CNN Reports; Star's Attorneys Deny It Was a 'Hoax'On Jan. 29, Smollett first reported the attack to police saying that two men in MAGA hats and ski masks attacked him early in the morning near a Subway sandwich shop, shouting racial slurs and the line, “This is MAGA country.” For weeks, however, cops struggled to crack the case. Two persons of interest identified and arrested by the police were later released.Also Read: 'Empire' Showrunner Still Stands by Jussie Smollett Despite New Evidence: 'Keep Your Head Up'New reporting from CNN and local Chicago news sources later have said Smollett staged the attack with two person’s of interest - one of whom is known to have appeared in Empire as an extra. Reps for the Chicago PD told TheWrap Monday that they were “not in a position to confirm, deny or comment on the validity of what’s been unofficially released.”In a weekend statement, attorneys for the actor, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, strongly denied the reporting from CNN and elsewhere saying Smollett “has been further victimized” by the claims.Read original story Al Sharpton Says Jussie Smollett Should ‘Face Accountability to the Maximum’ If Attack Was Staged At TheWrap
