A little girl beautifully teaches her Mom how to not ‘be mean’

A video of a little girl teaching her mother not to be “mean” is not just cute—it’s enlightening.

There are plenty of videos out there of kids being precocious. But every now and then, along comes a video of a child imparting wisdom that is not just cute but enlightening. In this video, a girl lectures her mother on how to speak from the heart and, more than that, to embody heart.


It seems that the divorced parents were spatting, and the young girl was not putting up with it. She explains how to speak from the heart level. “Try not to be high," she says, raising her arms. “I want everything to be low," she adds, bringing her arms down. Her perception about how people lose themselves in anger is expressed plainly. “I don't want you and my dad to be replaced and be mean again … If I can be nice, I think all of us can be nice too."

She then expresses something that is taught by mindfulness teachers, performers, even peacekeepers, about how to exude calm energy and speak from the heart. “I'm trying to be steady … Not way down. On straight, on the middle, where my heart is."

She adds, “My heart is something. Everyone else's heart is something too."

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
