You look so hot today, like a sunrise.

One of the many things I love about Daenerys [from Game of Thrones] is she’s given me an opportunity to fly the flag for young girls and women, to be more than just somebody’s wife and somebody’s girlfriend.”

“I have absolutely no script in my mind. I’m just going to ramble on and hope I get to the core of what this football club means.

First of all, it’s a  thank you to Manchester United; not just the directors, not just the medical staff, the coaching staff, the players, the supporters, it’s all of you. You have been the most fantastic experience of my life. Thank you.

I have been very fortunate. I have been able to manage some of the greatest players in the country, let alone Manchester United. All these players today have represented this club the proper way- they have won a championship in fantastic fashion. Well done to the players.

My retirement doesn’t mean the end of my life with the club. I will now be able to enjoy watching them, rather than suffer with them. But, if you think about it, those last-minute goals, the comebacks - even the defeats are all part of this great football club of ours, so thank you for that.

I’d also like to remind you that when we had bad times here the club stood by me, all my staff stood by me, the players stood by me - your job now is to stand by your new manager. That is important.

Before I start blubbling, I just want to pay tribute to Paul Scholes, who retires today. Unbelievable, one of the greatest players this club has ever had or ever will have. Paul, we wish you a good retirement. I know you will be around to annoy me. Also, I would like to say a little word wishing Darren Fletcher a speedy comeback to our club.  

The players, I wish the players every success in the future. You know how good you are, you know the jersey you’re wearing, and you know what it means to everyone here. Don’t ever let yourselves down. The expectation is always there.

I’m going home, well, I’m going inside for a while, and I want to say thank you again from all the Ferguson family, they are all up there - 11 grandchildren. Thank you.”

A pastor in Seoul, South Korea has created a “baby box” for people so that people who would otherwise abandon or kill their newborns can leave them somewhere safe instead. The box has a light, a towel lining, and a bell rings as soon as a baby is placed in it so the pastor, his wife, or one of his staff can come and get it right away.

Lee Jong-rak started the box in 2009, and has welcomed all babies, often disabled or the children of single mothers, that have been placed in the box since. The babies are given a loving home, food, and shelter in his orphanage. Currently, an average of 17-18 babies are placed in the box every month. 

One mother who had considered poisoning her baby before she heard about the Baby Box left her baby in the box with a letter pinned to his clothing that read: 

‘My baby! Mom is so sorry.
I am so sorry to make this decision.
My son! I hope you to meet great parents,
And I am very very sorry.
I don’t deserve to say a word.
sorry, sorry, and I love you my son.
Mom loves you more than anything else.
I leave you here because I don’t know who your father is.
I used to think about something bad but I guess this box is safer for you.
That’s why I decided to leave you here.
My son, Please forgive me.’

- ‘A single mother’s tearful letter’

Lee Jong-rak is the subject of a documentary called “The Drop Box”, which I haven’t seen - but I can recommend this 13 minute Dateline video. You can find the Facebook page for the BabyBox here.
