Today I would like to salute the men and women who serve in the police force and as fire fighters. People go into these lines of work for various reasons. One key reason is their desire to help people. The two stories below demonstrate the warm, caring hearts that beat behind the badges these two officers wear.
Here’s the story of a man who was already busy fighting a fire when suddenly he was called upon to deliver a baby. Now that’s what I call multi-tasking!
It helps to be in the right place at the right time. It helps to have special emergency training. What really helps is having a compassionate heart and the willingness to take action, not just when circumstances demand desperate measures but in the little moments that can make a huge difference.
To all of you “ordinary people” out there all over the world who will never be recognized publicly for what you do, thank you so much. Thank you for lighting that candle rather than just cursing the darkness.
