the same principle applies to everybody.
A pregnant woman awarded a kind-hearted man a trophy after she said he was the first guy in two pregnancies to offer up his seat for her on the New York City subway.
Ivonne Lin, who is reportedly eight months pregnant, said only women had given up their seats for her, so she finally had a trophy made to give the first man who got up for her.
For the last two months of her pregnancy, Lin has carried around a 7-inch trophy that reads “#1 DECENT DUDE – First Man to Offer Subway Seat to Pregnant Woman throughout Two Pregnancies.”
And last week on the A train, the award finally went to… Ricky Barksdale, of Harlem.
“I was on my phone playing a game and I glanced up, but didn’t know if she was pregnant because she was wearing all black,” Barksdale told InsideEdition.com. “The moment I realized she was pregnant, I got up immediately and she said, ‘Hold on I have something for you.'”
Barksdale, 34, who has two kids of his own, said the act is just common courtesy.
“I have seen it happen before. I’ve seen a pregnant woman and or a mom and child get on a train and seen people turn their heads or pretend their sleeping,” Barksdale said. “If you see someone pregnant, elderly, or disabled, just give up your seat. I just hope it motivates people to do the right thing.”
Lin told Barksdale that he restored her faith in men.
“He just really looked like a really nice guy,” Lin told CBS News. “I was shocked, but as a New Yorker you sort of develop a sixth sense on who would be a nice guy. He radiated that.”
Barksdale said the trophy is sitting on his counter at home.
This type of awards goes a long way to bless humanity more than a Grammy award.
For the fact it is more expensive than an Oscar award

KenPoly graduate who killed himself, cheated on his girlfriend
Shocking news of a graduate of Ken Saro-Wiwa Polytechnic (Kenpoly), Charles Orji who killed himself over a breakup with his girlfriend broke the internet last week.
The sad news was shared by a Twitter user who wrote,
“A Graduate From The Department Of Estate Management KenPoly Named Charles Orji Has Reportedly Committed Suicide This Morning After his girlfriend dumped him!!! Na wao!”.
Ken Saro-Wiwa polytechnic officials reported that Charles took in “sniper”, a strong insecticide, as a means to end his life.
According to reports by close persons, Charles was hurriedly buried in his hometown due to the unfortunate nature of his death.
As of last week, the reason behind the break-up wasn’t not know until Charles’s family member revealed the unknown. Charles cheated on his girlfriend and killed himself because his girlfriend refused to continue with the relationship.
The family member wrote,
“Charles I’m mad at you for what you’ve done and what you put my sister and our family through, we all loved you for who you were to her and to us. This isn’t the first time you’ve tried to kill yourself for a girl you love, but why make rejoice take the blame for your suicide this time around?
“You weren’t faithful to her but you claimed to love her, you confessed to sleeping with her close friend and even other girls, you weren’t faithful but she forgave you, even though she decided not to put up with your unfaithfulness anymore. You made such a rash decision drinking 3 bottles of sniper just because of the text she sent to you, didn’t even wait to talk to her, when you were rushed to the hospital, she had to send 20k to your people for hospital bills, money she doesn’t even have… before you died you told people that she is to be blamed for your death, now on social media people are cussing her out because of you, your family is threatening her, she’s not safe anymore.
charley, you’ve brought her pain, and no one is even giving her a listening ear… you don’t do that to someone you love… I’ve said enough, let me not say anymore.
“Rest In Peace”.
