1. Stranger and elderly veteran become 'best friends for the day' during Disneyland trip

It was an adventure these two new friends won't ever forget. Isaiah Garza recently posted on his TikTok a video showing him approaching an elderly man in a park and asking him if he'd like to spend the day at the happiest place on Earth: Disneyland. "You'd really take me?" the man, a 100-year-old veteran, responded. "This is great!" Their meeting had been pre-arranged between Garza and the man's caregiver, but was a total surprise for the centenarian. Once they arrived at Disneyland, they went for a spin on the Mad Tea Party before riding It's a Small World and singing the song together "like 50 times," Garza told Fox 11. "It was so cute." In the TikTok video, Garza is shown dancing with the man near Sleeping Beauty Castle and giving him a pair of Mickey Mouse ears, captioning it, "[We] became best friends for the day." This was "one of the best days of my life," the man said, adding, "I feel like I might be dreaming or something. I thought my life was over. I will remember this day for a long time." Garza was homeless for several years, and he often thought about his future and doing random acts of kindness. "I told myself I was going to use this energy and harness it for good someday," he said.
