Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Ten-year-old Elijah Porter was ecstatic when Canada’s 4x100m relay team won bronze in London.
Then the team was disqualified for running outside the lane, and Elijah, devastated, wanted to help ease the pain for runners Justyn Warner, Gavin Smellie, Jared Connaughton, and Oluseyi Smith.
So he sent them a letter:

Dear Justyn, Gavin, Jarred [sic], and Oluseyi,
I’m Elijah Porter. I’m ten and I live in Newfoundland, Canada. When I heard what happened on Aug. 11, I knew it was wrong. The rules were not right. But, at last, I realized how good you were. We’re Canadians. We persevere. We create better lives for each other. The cold didn’t stop us from living in the north. We didn’t lose the War of 1812. We adapt and survive. We have earned our freedom. Someday, if I become a biologist, if I get rich, and, if I remember, I will donate money to the summer and winter Canadian Olympians. I hope you like the medal!
Elijah Porter

Elijah included with the letter his medal from a soccer clinic sponsored by Tim Hortons.

Oh my god


So many onions…
