This weekend, I joined the Addictive Summer Reads Event (lots of great prizes and lots of great books priced at $0.99 including Always Remember), but my thoughts are on the many unsung heroes who surround us every day.
A recent bout of bad luck sent our youngest son to the emergency room for the second time this month. After years of believing himself to be indestructible, a herniated disc finally brought him to his knees. It caused pain like I’d never witnessed before, making him immobile, and I had to call the ambulance to take him to the emergency room. It was the first time we’ve ever had to call for an ambulance…and I certainly hope it’s the last.
From the moment I greeted the Paramedic and EMT at the door, I knew my son was in good hands.They were calm, caring, and yes, even funny. And as an added bonus, they had enough drugs to cut through my son’s pain so that they were finally able to walk him out to the ambulance so they could take him to the hospital.
In anything resembling an emergency situation, I panic, fall apart. I’m much more hardwired to be behind a desk, staying one emotional mile away from the real action.
Whereas these special people are hardwired to be calm in the center of chaos. I should know because I married one. My husband was a long time member of the local fire department, and it was not uncommon to hear about him running into burning buildings to rescue people or the treasured contents of the owners with no fear for himself.
Whenever an emergency occurs at home, he’s the first person I call. And fortunately our boys inherited this quality from their father, this ability to be calm in the face of danger, this ability to care for others before they care for themselves.
So to all of our heroes — ambulance personnel, firefighters, police force, military, and anybody who has the capability to walk into an emergency situation and deal — you have my utmost, heartfelt admiration and thanks for all you do, all you are.
Have you had a personal encounter with a hero? Please tell us about it. It’s all fodder for the writing mill, you know. 🙂
