You can also include some more generic moments, like 'I support you,' 'I know you're going through a difficult time, but it'll get better and I love you,' etc..
You might want to include several 'shocking news reaction' videos where you do spit takes.
Oh, and whatever you do, make sure you never say anything like, "I was just talking to your mother..." when recording these.

(Yes, I'm making light of a serious situation, but sometimes that's the healthiest thing to do.)

If you google, infant mortality by state, Mississippi has the highest infant mortality rate. Double that of many states... It must be a coincidence.

Don't be ridiculous. It's obviously because of vaccinations and not:

*having one of the highest premature birth rates in the nation
*obesity during pregnancy (Mississippi leads the nation in obesity too)
*widespread poverty
*an incredibly high rate of teenage births

Comment: Re:its not about the ring, its just a lesson. (Score 1) 591

It's even worse. After looking at the article, I can't even qualify it as a threat, credible or not.

Aiden claimed Thursday he could put a ring on his friend's head and make him invisible like Bilbo Baggins, who stole Gollum's "precious" in J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy series "The Lord of the Rings."

Somehow, the school authorities took the claim of one boy that he could use an invisibility ring to make someone invisible as a threat that he would 'make the other boy vanish'. Combined with the boy's past history with the school, I have to wonder whether the authorities are really so incredibly delusional and incompetent or if this is a deliberate campaign against him.
