    The Kiss Of Life by Rocco Morabito, 1968 Pulitzer Prize. Jacksonville Journal photographer Rocco Morabito is on his way to photograph a railroad strike when he notices Jacksonville Electric Authority linemen high up on the poles. “I passed these men working and went on to my assignment,” says Morabito. “I took eight pictures at the strike. I thought I’d go back and see if I could rind another picture.” But when Morabito gets back to the linemen, “I heard screaming. I looked up and I saw this man hanging down. Oh my God. I didn’t know what to do.” The linemen. Randall Champion, is dangling upside down in his safety belt — felled bv 4,160 volts of electricity. “I took a picture right quick.” says Morabito. “J.D. Thompson (another lineman) was running toward the pole. I went to my car and called an ambulance. I got back to the pole and J.D. was breathing into Champion.” Cradling the stricken lineman in his arms, Thompson rhythmically pushes air into Champion’s lungs. Below. Morabito makes pictures — and prays. “I backed off. way off until I hit a house and I couldn’t go any farther. I took another picture”, it is a prize-winning photograph, but Morahito’s real concern is the injured lineman. Thompson finally shouts down: “He’s breathing.” Champion survives.

    This picture is from an article called "The Rescuing Hug". The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby's heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.

    An Eagle Named Freedom ~ Freedom and Jeff have been together 13 years. When Freedom was brought to a wildlife center as a baby she could not stand, was emaciated and covered in lice. Jeff made the decision to give her a chance at life, and she survived against all odds. As fate would have it after she mended, Jeff got cancer. While in the hospital Jeff says Freedom would come to him in dreams time and time again to help him fight the cancer. After 8 months of chemo, Jeff’s cancer was gone. When he returned home the first thing he did was take Freedom for a walk. Somehow she knew he was cured, looked at him for a long time, and wrapped both of her wings around him, engulfing him. He says it was a magical moment. Freedom was glove trained and will never be able to fly, but she and Jeff visit schools all over western Washington State introducing this magnificent spirit to children. As a side note: Jeff has had many people who are sick come up to them when they are out. He says Freedom has some kind of hold on them. Once a man with terminal cancer came up to them and when he held Freedom his knees buckled and he swore he could feel her power course through his body. Jeff says he has many stories about this birds power and spirit and thinks she is an angel in disguise. Watch as Jeff tells more of her touching story www.youtube.com/w...

    This is Amazing! A 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas was operated on in his mother’s womb by surgeon Joseph Bruner. As Dr. Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life. Dr. Bruner said when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile. The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb. During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. Little Samuel’s mother said they “wept for days” when they saw the picture. She said, “The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person” Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100% successful. What a beautiful story!
