Firefighter is consider to be one of dangerous jobs in the world, but Mark Bezos, an assistant captain volunteer in fire company presented his TED talk in a funny way. It was in the middle of the night and under pouring rain when he got into initial fire assignment. A volunteer who arrived five seconds before him was asked to save home-owner's dog. So when his turn came, captain of the volunteer said that Bezos need to got inside the house, pass the fire and got the home-owner a pair of shoes to wear. When he got out from the house, it turned out that his friend who save the dog got more attention that him! At that time, he feel that he is not a hero.

However, through his volunteer role as a firefighter, he learnt about the act of generosity and kindness as well to learnt about grace and courage a long the way. He advised if people want to help their surrounding, they need to start now. It does not to be somethings big. For example, serve food at a soup kitchen, clean up neighborhoods park or be a mentor. At last, Bezos gave an inspiring words to close his speech with " not every day is going to offer a chance to save somebody's life but every day offer an opportunity to affect one".
