When Tragedy Strikes
"Courage is grace under pressure."
- Ernest Hemingway
How do you react in a time of emergency? Do you keep your head, or do you completely lose it? Once, when I was spending time with some family members at my condo, one of them was looking out the window and spotted a woman lying on her in the middle of the parking lot below. One of us called 9-1-1, and two of us raced down the stairs. Once we made it over to the woman, we cradled her head, and she came to. We kept her still, comforted her, and made sure she didn't move. We were relieved when the EMTs arrived and took over, but we felt good about the fact that we acted courageously, even though we were scared half to death.
TODAY IF A SERIOUS PROBLEM ARISES, I WILL STEP FORWARD TO HELP INSTEAD OF SHRINKING INTO THE BACKGROUND.
