Keenia Williams and Ellen

keenia williamsSometimes there is good news and sometimes there is some not so good news and that makes me feel sad. I know we can’t always hear about happy things but sometimes that’s exactly what we need. Today was one of those days for me because I felt a little sad about something. Then my mom and I watched the Ellen show and what we saw made us cry happy tears and now we both feel happy. I want you to know the story about Keenia Williams so that it can make you happy but also because maybe you can help her.

Keenia Williams’ daughter thinks she is a super hero and with good reason. On two different occasions over several years, Keenia Williams happened to be in the vicinity of serious car accidents. How she reacted showed great courage, strength and love for her fellow man. She managed to get the accident victims out of a tangled car and burning truck in order to save them. With almost super human strength, she saved their lives. Keenia made her daughter proud enough to tell anyone and everyone about her “super hero” mom.

Keenia said that she didn’t have the best life growing up. She said she wouldn’t change any of it because it helped her to be strong. Keenia said that her life has helped her to teach her daughter not to be selfish and to appreciate everything she is given. She said, “All I want to do is provide for my daughter.” If you watch the video below, you will understand why we want to add her to our Wall of Heroes.

Keenia is having a difficult time earning money in her area and is trying to get a job. PLEASE! If you know of anyone who might be able to help her get a job, you can you can read the next paragraph from Ellen’s show and do something to help her.

“Ellen met Keenia and was astounded by her spirit. Keenia is looking for work in the San Francisco area. Her dream is to work with at-risk youth and to help them get back on their feet. She has experience working with non-profit organizations and would certainly make an amazing addition to any organization. If you have a job for Keenia, or any leads she should know about, send them to us right here. “

Keenia Williams is the newest member on my wall of heroes. Partly because she saved those two people but even more because of the way she is mothering her daughter. That little girl may not have all the money that she might want but she sure has a great start to her life with one of the best mothers ever!

Keenia Williams you go girl! You are my hero too and that’s why you are on Rugby’s Hero Wall!

Ali Mohammadian – True Hero

Ali Mohammadian Good teachers… no… great teachers are everywhere! The best of the best teachers are the ones who notice the happenings in their classrooms. They not only notice, they do anything and everything to make a difference in the lives of their students.

It’s not all about teaching reading, writing, and math. It’s not all about grades and tests. It’s more than that. The teachers who are the ones who will be remembered and revered by their students are the teachers who care enough to go above and beyond for their students. They are humble and they are powerful in their actions.

Ali Mohammadian is one of these teachers. He is a man who must be commended and raised up as a hero. He showed an empathy and compassion that “trickled down” to his students. Without drama or a need to cry out for attention, this exemplary teacher made a difference. He made a difference for a bullied child and he made a difference for all of the bullied children and teachers in the world.

When Iranian schoolteacher Ali Mohammadian became aware of the fact that his student was being bullied after losing his hair because of a mysterious illness, he took a stand. He did something that not many teachers would do. He offered his support, empathy and compassion for his young bald student by shaving his own head. Within a few days his students followed his example. The whole class or over twenty students shaved their heads and the bullied child was no longer the target of unkind bullying.

Ali Mohammadian – True HeroAli Mohammadian

This exemplary man is quoted as saying, “Mahan had become isolated after going bald, his smile had disappeared from his face and I was concerned about his class performance. That’s why I thought about shaving my head to get him back on track.”

Thank you Ali Mohammadian. You are a hero and you are the kind of teacher that parents and children everywhere want to be teaching in each and every school.
