Instead of shutting down a teenager’s hot dog stand for not having a permit, the city helped him turn his stand into a business.

13-year-old Jaequan Faulkner started his hot dog stand in 2016 as a means of doing something creative to fend off his depression. Additionally, he wanted to use the money to buy himself some new clothes.

So with his tabletop business set up in front of his home in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the youngster started selling hot dogs, chips, and sodas to the locals – and everybody loved it.

Sometimes Good News Is Right Next Door

603 Views
Message 14 of 14

I read a story the other day where a women found her half sister. She knew that her father had another child to another woman after he left her mom, but she wasn't in contact with the dad much. After her father passed away she started searching for her half sister. The story turned out she lived right next door and the two of them get along famously. 

 

Nice to have happen I think. I smiled when I read that one. Now I challenge you to write a few lines about something good you heard, read or lived. It can't all be bad news these days, can it?
