This heartbreaking story is about as elephant Raju from India that had an incredibly rough life. After being poached from his mother he was thrown from one owner to another, until he was left living in terrible conditions with no shelter at night, being used as a beggars prop all day long. Raju survived only from passing tourists and sometimes had to eat plastic and paper while being chained 24 hours a day. A wildlife organisation SOS-UK could not stand the injustice and decided to save him in a daring midnight rescue operation.
The elephant, realizing he was being saved, started to cry: “It was incredibly emotional. We knew in our hearts he realised he was being freed” – claims Pooja Binepal, one of the rescuers in an interview with Presspeople. “Tears began to roll down Raju’s face. Some no doubt were due to the pain but he also seemed to sense that change was coming. He felt hope for the first time” – says another rescuer Kartick.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.

I once - while on a four day from AIT - got stuck in Delaware because the Bus people didn’t think to tell me I needed different tickets to get back to Aberdeen from where I went to in PA. Two of these guys stuck around, and helped me while I was confused and stranded overnight at a closed terminal until the Amtrak station opened up so I could get back to training. They popped up to chase some bugger off creeping on me that they knew to be a serious issue in the area. Talked literally about army stuff and stuck around so I could get a quick nap in. Nothing happened. They helped me find the amtrak station afterwards as well.
Anyone and everyone else who saw me stuck at the terminal that day just kind of blew me off. It was terrible.
