*A beautiful expression of brotherly love has gone viral after their mom shared video of the moment on Facebook.

A young man with Down Syndrome was overcome with raw emotion after his older brother revealed that he had gotten a tattoo of him on his arm. Enamored, the younger brother, Erick, repeatedly ran his hands over the image, which showed his face inside the mouth of a lion. The gesture so moved him that he gave his older brother, Rafa, a kiss, and then a long embrace.

“Look at my puppy’s reaction to the beautiful tribute, his face tattooed inside a lion’s mouth. The video is EXCITING. That’s why I saw Rafa asking Erick to make a brave face,” wrote Soares Sheila, before adding, “My dear friends, when I posted this video I could swear that it would not cause this dimension of sharing that caused.”

Arlington County, Va. Deputy Fire Chief Tiffanye Wesley

*A firefighter has just shattered the glass ceiling and broken racial barriers in Virginia with one single promotion.

Tiffanye Wesley has become the first African American woman to become a deputy fire chief in northern Virginia.

“It still feels surreal!” she tells local ABC affiliate WJLA about becoming the deputy fire chief for Arlington County, one of just three Black people in a department of nearly 350 members. “The support is unbelievable, all over the country.”

She’s now in charge of recruitment, promotions, discipline, everything related to human resources.

Wesley made national news when she got her last promotion almost two years ago, even challenging Harry Connick Jr. to the rigorous firefighter test on his talk show.

Wesley’s husband Eric is also in the fire department. He was just promoted to captain, but she outranks him with her new title. Still, he’s her biggest fan.

“When he looked at me and said ‘I knew you could do it,’ it meant the world to me.”

Below, watch Tiffanye Wesley in action!
