She is pregnant, he had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire. When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest. A photographer from the Charlotte , North Carolina newspaper, noticed her in the distance looking at the fireman. He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do. As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this photograph.
A friend from Michigan sent me this picture and story. Lately, I discover that I am touched by the oddest things. This is one of them. Harry's story about the turtle that followed him around last weekend is another. Sometimes the innocence, intelligence, and open affection of animals helps to overcome the lack thereof in humans. Anyway, I cried and smiled at the same time - at this photo. I hope you enjoyed the story, too.
