All lives matter and with the dangerous nature of their work, firefighters are bravely risking their own lives in order to save others. In some instances, the ones they save aren’t even humans but animals.
This compilation you will see below is a touching tribute for courageous firefighters from different places across the world. In behalf of the entire mankind, thank you for the work that you do and thank you for showing us the true value of every life.
As Lt JJ Edmondson once said:
“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defence force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”

Poor Whale Asked for Help From Humans, Then Shows How Grateful He is Afterwards
When James Moskito tried to entangle a whale from a one-mile long line they found they found in freezing waters, he did not expect it to do the most touching thing a gentle giant can do.
James and a group of volunteers were out in the water when they saw a humpback whale come up the surface. The poor whale stared at them as if it was trying to communicate something. Indeed, after a few minutes, James and his group realized that the whale was asking for help as it was bound to a long net.

Stork Flies 8000 Miles Every Year For His One True Love
Two storks teach us a lesson on true love and it is absolutely heartwarming.
Most of us, if not all of humanity, are in search for their one great and truest love. That one person who will complete them and make them happy for the rest of their lives. That is the ultimate goal in life, after all right? To find The One and love him or her forever. Not everyone is lucky enough to find their other half so people who do, make sure that they are able to do everything they can to make things work.
The same goes for animals, too. They are also in search of their own mates, fall in love, and the rest is history as they all say. Animals, too, make sacrifices for their mates, and they also make sure that their respective partners know and feel that their love is true. This is one such story between two storks.
Lovebirds Klepetan and Malena are inseparable most of the time.
