There is nothing quite like the undeniable joy you get from watching two teens having a blast and living their best lives.

Livi Dorsey and Jawon Kimmons were doing just that as they were taking photos for their prom and striking every pose imaginable.

Of course, the poses and looks were iconic.


As seen in the viral video, which has now garnered almost two million views, Livi Dorsey is nothing short of an embodiment of joy.

Watch for yourself.


Every time her family asks for a new pose, she delivers like Beyoncé delivers any time she walks out on stage. Which should come as no surprise as the 18 year old is a huge fan of Queen B.

But, of course, we can't forget her date, Jawon Kimmons, who was serving up his own lewks while rocking his flattop haircut.

What makes this story so pure and wonderful is how these two don't seem to let their own obstacles get them down. Livi has Down Syndrome, while Jawon is autistic with limited verbal abilities.

He asked Livi to his prom while at church with a handmade sign.

But, rather than make this story one of sadness and frowns, it instead becomes a joyous event of bliss and smiles. Everyone is having such an incredible time that they won't let anything get them down.

Both sets of parents each had something to say about how inspiring they found the whole event.

Jawon's mom, Doretha Kimmons, was quoted saying:

"He gave her a gift basket with a teddy bear, a big bar of chocolate and roses. He's not very verbal because he has autism. I have a very good friend...she made him a sign that said, 'Will you go to the prom with me?'"

And she responded to the video by saying:

"It's just mind-blowing how viral that went -- it's just beautiful. I had never been around a person with Down syndrome, but it was just amazing to me to see her [reaction]. Everyone was cheering her on."

While Livi's father said:

"It touched people because it was an innocent moment."

Needless to say, both parents are over the moon that their children have been able to bring smiles to so many others through their poses.

It was truly a magical event.

But what may be the most magical of all of the bliss, is that Jawon and Livi had so much fun, they've already committed to doing it all over again next year when they attend Livi's prom.

It just goes to show how nothing is better than innocent and blissful fun.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
