It is truly an immense uplift for the soul whenever someone goes the extra mile to stretch their hands to help others.
On a Friday morning in Hong Kong, a man stopped and stepped off his motorcycle along Lion Rock Tunnel Road to save a kitten while in the middle or traffic. The man's deed was caught on another vehicle's dashcam.
The cat-hero, Kevin Kwok, was apparently a firefighter. On Facebook, he stated: “I said to myself that I could get hit by a car and killed if I went back to get it. But as I kept driving, I couldn’t bear to be so heartless, so I stopped [to rescue it]. If I hadn’t, I’m pretty sure it would have been hit by a car.”
Kwok took the cat with him to work in Cheung Chau. Pictures of the adorable kitten were uploaded online wherein Kwok asked for a potential new owner. After an hour the baby kitten got its new loving family.
Kwok received praises online, calling him a 'hero' and an 'exemplary man.' More than 16,000 people reacted to his post on Facebook. A local artist even got inspired and created an artwork of him saving the kitten.
Indeed, each of us are altruistic within. Imagine if kindness is what you witness in our daily life. Our faith in humanity will be completely restored.
