Behind the Face of Illness

-- Quote of the Day -- 

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on Sept 10, 2013… titled: Best of Conscious Discussions # 51 re: Stress & First Responders

 (*Click on the title to access the full discussion)

 “Making eye contact with them (paramedics) …it is the little things that mean a lot. One of the things I do is if I go into a restaurant somewhere… and there is a paramedic crew in there - I will buy them lunch – it is a gesture, something that says “hey – you guys we appreciate you”. Another pattern I see evolving in the US is that when things go bad in a situation and the worst case scenario happens people sometimes want to blame somebody because the outcome wasn’t the way they wanted it to be … but there are limits to everything in medicine and in rescue – the gesture of them going into a burning building or going up on live wires or somebody off a roof – the fact that they showed up, took some equipment and tried to save somebody’s life needs to be recognized more, and it is not in a lot of cases.”
