Numerous firemen at both Chernobyl and Ground Zero went knowingly to their death in the performance of their life-saving duty, but my faith in humanity would be better bolstered if humanity had not created the circumstances that made their sacrifice necessary.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach

Somehow, my faith in humanity isn't heightened by people risking their lives to save the lives of animals. Which is the theme of quite a few of those pictures. I'm more impressed by people who make sacrifices to help other people in need, especially people they don't know. Surely that's what humanitarianism is all about.

OTOH, I just posted the link in a chat room, with the statement: 21 pictures that will restore your faith in humanity.

Another chatter said, "What are the pictures about, reb?"

I said, "Just look and see."

She said, "Reb, you're such a pain in the butt sometimes."

Yes, thank you. I already knew that.

Yawn. Typical response from this stuffed shirt.

"A nation can be judged by how it treats its animals." - Mohandas K. Gandhi

I, for one, was uplifted by the pictures and, especially, those which showed people taking risks to save animals. Into our hands they are delivered.

Thanks for posting the images.
