The FBI is seeing it happen to children all across the country, and the victim count is rising as predators flock to social media apps to seek out children and teens.

HLN: James 'Patti's Pies' Wright on viral video

Every once and a while, you encounter a video on the internet that makes you realize that humans are awesome, and if you need proof of this, look no further than viral YouTube star James Wright.

If that doesn't happen, I guess we're on our own. Whyyyyyy did it end this way?!
