Fireman Cory Kalanick and other members of the Fresno, California fire department were searching through a house after putting out a fire when he spotted a lifeless kitten on the floor.

Kalanick picked up the kitten thinking there might still be time to resuscitate it. His instincts and training paid off and the kitten was saved.

Firemen like Kalanick understand that life, whether human or animal, is sacred. If everyone thought like he did, the world would be a much better place.
