If you are anything like me, when you think of heroes, you think of people like Superman and Wonder Woman. Most real heroes, however, do not wear capes. We are, in fact, surrounded by heroes on a daily basis. Heroes, in my eyes, are the people who take the time to help others. The woman in this story became a hero when she went above and beyond to save the life of a helpless animal.
One day, two friends were walking down a quiet street. All of a sudden, one of the friends stopped in her tracks. The other friend was confused but the woman refused to move. She seemed to be listening for something.
Then, all at once, the woman began to move towards a sewer opening on the side of the road. The woman's friend followed her and soon she also heard what her friend had been listening for. It was the unmistakable cries of a kitten.
The women both got down on their hands and knees and peered down into the sewer. As they looked inside, they both saw exactly what they had been looking for. A small kitten had fallen into the sewer and the poor thing was much too small to climb back out.
The women immediately jumped into action. Each of them got down on their stomachs and took turns reaching into the opening, trying to reach the kitten. Try as they might, however, the kitten was just too far down and the opening was too narrow for the women to reach it.
The women could not bring themselves to leave the kitten behind but they could not figure out a solution to their problem. Much like myself and many others in the world, the women were much too compassionate and maybe even a little stubborn, to give up. After taking a small break, the women went back to the sewer to try again.
One of the women decided that it was going to drastic measures to get the kitten to safety. So, throwing caution to the wind, the woman did something completely out of the box. The video on the next page will show you just how determined the woman was to rescue the small kitten. CLICK "NEXT PAGE" TO READ THE REST OF THE STORY...
