School Holds Assembly to Honor Waving Neighbor

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  we see proof that the smallest gesture can have the biggest impact. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Tinney Davidson, 84, and her husband moved into their Ontario, Canada, home in 2007.  Little did they know, it was on the way to a school.

Each day, the kids would walk to and from school, and each day, Tinney and her husband would wave at them.

"I love it," she says. "And they seem to like it also. So it's been a fun few years."

When Tinney's husband passed on a few years ago, she continued the tradition.

Recently, the students at the school were so touched by her waving day after day, year after year, the entire school recently held an assembly in her honor.

They presented her with a Valentines Day gift and  a special video presentation, and of course, plenty of hugs.

Dunn Juror: 'I Believed He Was Guilty'

One of the jurors who convicted Michael Dunn of attempted murder after he fired into an SUV during a fatal argument believes he should have been convicted of first-degree murder.

"I believed he was guilty," Valerie said in an interview with ABC's "Nightline" early Wednesday. Also known as Juror No. 4, she asked that her full name not be given in order to protect her identity.

A jury on Saturday night convicted Dunn of three charges of attempted second-degree murder for shooting into an SUV full of teenagers after arguing about their loud music. He was also convicted of one count of shooting into the vehicle.

But a separate first-degree murder charge in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis resulted in a hung jury. Prosecutor Angela Corey said she would seek a new trial on the charge.

Dunn faces 60 years or more in prison for the attempted murder charges when he's sentenced next month.

On the murder charge, Valerie said the jury split over the issue of self-defense.

Florida law says the use of deadly force is justifiable if someone reasonably believes that the force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm.

In his testimony, Dunn insisted that Davis threatened him and that he saw a gun. Police never recovered a weapon.

Valerie said the jury's first vote was 10-2 in favor of a murder conviction. Over nearly 30 hours of deliberations, the vote became 9-3.
