Pulitzer Prize winning photo of Oklahoma City fire Capt. Chris Fields carrying a dying Baylee Almon from the wreckage of the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal government Building in Oklahoma City, 1995. I watched this footage, and at the time thought that this would probably be one of those pictures that would forever be seared into people's minds. And I cried.

Probably the most horrific image from the Vietnam War. The photo was simply titled "Napalm Girl".

I can't post pics from this computer, but the one that's missing IMO, is the picture from the moon of earth just rising over the horizon...

The word 'hero' gets tossed around very loosely these days. This is what a real hero looks like.

Not the one I was thinking of, but I see from a google search that there are several.

The image I had in mind, I'm pretty sure was taken from the surface of the moon by one of the astronauts. The Earth is just clearing the horizon...

In the above unusual photo taken in 1932, the 70-year old Dr. Evan O’Neill Kane of Kane, Pennsylvania operated upon himself for inguinal hernia. When performing the complicated surgery Kane was very relaxed and even joking as he came within millimeters of important blood vessels. Because of the close proximity to the femoral artery it was a particularly delicate operation which Kane performed it in just under two hours.

Eleven years prior he removed his own appendix using only a local anesthetic.
