A lot of times we complain about a lot of things happening in our lives. We are mostly focused on the things that we would like to have instead of what we have, which is sad. The world is becoming more and more materialistic, a significant number of people out there are only focused on ways to make money and improve their financial situation while they really have to focus on things that are really important, which is spending time with our loved ones.
Only when we face tough situations in life we realize the mistakes that we have made. The virus who has frozen the normal flow of life all over the world, Coronavirus, is reminding all of us that now, more than ever, we need to stay together with our loved ones and take measures so we can protect them and ourselves to a certain extent. That’s why all of us need to take the advice that a lot of authorities all over the world are giving us in order to face such a difficult situation.
Not only viruses, but there are also other events in life that can put our lives in danger and such an example is the story that you are going to read. One family’s worst nightmare came true when they woke up in the middle of the night to find that their barn—which housed 14 Clydesdale horses—had caught fire.Things seemed hopeless for the family and their poor horses. Yet help was waiting for an unexpected place. The Martin family of Oconee County, Georgia were horrified when their barn caught fire with their 14 Clydesdale horses inside, including a pregnant mare and a 3-week-old colt.
Making matters worse, the power had just gone out—and the door to the barn was now locked. The horses would’ve died had it not been for the quick thinking of 16-year-old Macon Martin. “I just ran right out,” he said. “I had no clothes on, no shoes—no nothing,” he added. He went through a very critical situation just so he could save the lives of the horses. This guy is a true hero and he definitely needs to be applauded for that.
