Typically, when I see my home state of Florida in the news I brace myself for what I might find out next, but this time I found a heroic tale!

A heroic teen rushed into his family’s burning home to save two young relatives. James Henry, 18, ran into the house in Miami as it was engulfed in flames and he got four-year-old Josiah and his younger sister Madison out of danger.

Henry says he was outside in the car when the blaze broke out and his mom came out yelling “fire,” so he sprang into action to help save his family members.

It doesn’t happen often, (especially in Miami ) but I was proud of my home state of Florida and James Henry for this heroic deed.
