Saving a life is not a common scenario that we get to experience everyday. Some of us may not even care if someone cries for help or if someone needs immediate attention. Not all people are brave enough to do a heroic act especially to someone they don’t even know. A brave heart can only care so much to get out of his way and set aside everything just to extend a helping hand. An act of bravery is definitely an act of kindness. And not everyone can do this.
While driving on the highway, a bus driver named Silvio Gomes saw a black dog that was trapped in the middle of a busy street in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Silvio saw that the dog was afraid and frightened because he was located in the express lane of the highway. The bus driver was thinking of the dog’s safety and was very worried that the dog might get hit by a car anytime.
When he saw the dog at the side of the street when he passed by, he turned around and the dog was too scared and wanted to jump. There was a sense of urgency that triggered the bus driver to save the dog’s life.
The passengers were confused why he stopped the bus but they were all glad and even applauded Silvio for what he did. The dog was also very happy that he was saved and alive.
He took the dog to a shelter after he got off work. But his wife was disappointed when he told her that he took the dog to a shelter. The next day, Silvio went above and beyond by adopting the dog without any second thoughts and hesitation. He named the dog Olympics, named after the place where it was rescued, Olympic Stadium.
