In light of everything going on in the world at the moment, it’s easy to assume that news stories are full of doom and gloom. After all, people have lost their jobs, vacations have been canceled, and weddings have had to be postponed. However, we’re here to tell you that there is still some good in this world – and this delivery driver is a prime example of that.
Postponing The Wedding
Many couples spend months or even years planning the perfect wedding, and this was no different for Dylan Perkins and Savannah Kulenic. However, they were forced to cancel their big day – due to take place on the beach in Hawaii – due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While their trip to Hawaii was no more, the couple knew that they still wanted to get hitched. So, they organized an intimate wedding on the beaches of North Carolina instead.
Just In Time
While organizing a small set up on the beach was fairly easy, Dylan and Savannah found themselves dealing with a small snag when the company making the grooms’ wedding ring temporarily stopped trading. Thankfully, they opened back up again just in time for their nuptials, but they once again hit another snag. Although the couple were due to get married at 3pm, the ring was not due to be delivered until 4:30pm.
Leaving A Note
Because the couple would be at the beach when the ring was due to be delivered, they left a note on their front door asking – and hoping – that the FedEx driver would take it to their destination. Amazingly, just as they were beginning the ceremony, their guests soon saw the delivery driver making his way down the sand dunes with their ring in tow. He truly saved the day.
Although the FedEx man could have just left the ring, he decided to do something wonderful instead – and that’s something to be proud of.
As She Turned 18, Greta Thunberg Has Made Some New Lifestyle Choices
At an interview that marked her 18th birthday, Greta Thunberg discussed her lifestyle and some new and interesting choices she has made for herself. The environmental activist said she has stopped buying new clothes, yet she added she would not judge others who make less environmentally-friendly lifestyle choices than her own.
Greta Thunberg Has Turned 18 and Became a Swedish Adult
Greta Thunberg is known for her environmental activism and the solo school strike in 2018, which turned into a global youth movement. Her interesting lifestyle choices include traveling by boat instead of flying and veganism. When asked about what she thought of people who talk about acting on climate change but fly around the world despite that, the teenager refused to criticize them, saying that others may feel that way, but not her. She said she is not telling anyone else what they should do but pointed out that people who do not practice what they preach would be open to criticism themselves and would not be taken seriously.
Greta Thunberg said that while statistics show the best way for individuals to reduce their carbon emissions is to avoid long flights or not have children, she would not tell people not to procreate. According to her, it is not the people who are the problem but their behavior. Greta also pointed out that she does not believe it is selfish to have kids.
Greta Thunberg Said She Was Not Missing Out On Much With Her Different Lifestyle
Although her lifestyle is quite different than that of most western teenagers, Greta Thunberg said she did not feel like she was missing out. She said that while she might buy second-hand clothes, she does not need new ones, and flying to a far-away place would not make her happier. According to her, because these are things she didn’t need, missing them didn’t feel like a sacrifice.
The young environmental activist said her perfect birthday present would be a promise from everyone that they would do everything they can for the planet. As a more tangible gift, she pointed out that because in Sweden it gets very dark in the winter, she would like replacement headlights for her bike.
