EMT? ME? Did you ever consider what this could mean? Flashing lights, blaring sirens. Action all around. Well, it's not quite like Hollywood makes it out to be. It's hard work and strange hours. It's people at their best and people at their worst. It's the tragedy and triumph of life in its simplest form. I feel if I can make a difference in just one person's life, then I have to shout"THANK YOU"to all those crazy teachers and people before me and after me. Smile and say to myself,"you know, it's been a great day after all!"I love being an EMT!
