Happy Ending for 6-Year-Old After Nobody Shows Up to His Birthday Party


When not a single person showed up to 6-year-old Glenn Buratti’s birthday party, his mother, Ashlee, was devastated. “From the minute he woke up that day he wanted to know how many minutes until his friends came. None of the kids’ parents RSVP’d, but I was still holding on to the hope that some of them would show up,” the Florida mom
When Buratti broke the news to her son, who is autistic

Do teachers still read this nursery rhyme to little children in class?

Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails,

I hope she doesn't think all Americans feel like this.

Is a rock considered a deadly weapon?

Does Obama truly believe that the TPP will help American workers?

What does he know that he's not telling us?

I find it hard to fathom that he would deliberately want something that he knows
would hurt American jobs.

Is he actually that kind of man?
