This year of 2017 has been filled with a lot of hard to read news. Luckily, there have also been many stories to restore our faith in humanity and our world.

One of the best lessons my grandma taught me was to help others. She said if you do good deeds, great blessings will come to you.

What would you do if you were on your way home and saw someone in danger? Would you stop to help or ignore the situation and continue on your way?

19 year old, Oscar Gonzalez, seen by many as a “hero”, was driving home through the Southern California fires after work when he and his friend saw a rabbit running along the burning Highway 1. The massive fire has forced around 190,000 people out of their homes.

Gonzalez saw the rabbit jumping and decided to rescue the animal. He stopped on the road wearing only shorts and a hoodie and raced after the animal. As you see in the video, this “hero” paces anxiously trying to figure out how to rescue the rabbit from the burning fires. What would you do?

“I love animals myself, I didn’t want the rabbit to go through the fire,” said Gonzalez to NBC News. Gonzalez said at the beginning the rabbit was scared but then it jumped straight into his arms and allowed him to carry it to the other side of the highway where there were no flames.
