Here’s a strange thing about being a first responder in a rural area,

As I drive to work, or the grocery store, or the lake, I don’t see addresses and associate them with the houses that sit behind, I see 'Reduced LOC, 74 y/o male.' or ‘CPR in progress, 55 y/o female, possible overdose.’ or as I pass a certain curve and ditch, ‘MVA, Motorcycle vs deer, unknown injury.’
Locations are expanded to include incidents and the individuals involved, not just vague, visual descriptions. No longer will that be ‘the blue house on the corner with the Dodge out front’, it’s now ‘Terminal lung cancer pt. in need of transport.’

all week for friday,
all year for summer,
all life for happiness."

""Life" Joe said. "What a completely weird thing it is. A person lives sixty years, does all kinds of things, feels all kinds of things, and then it’s over. Like it never happened at all."
“We’ll always remember her.”
“No, we’ll remember parts of her. The parts she chose to share. The tip of the iceberg. The rest, only she knew about. Therefore the rest already doesn’t exist. As of now”."
