What is a Paramedic…

Unknown Author

he’s like any other man, with colds,
worries, bond repayments and unfulfilled dreams.
But he stands taller than most men.
When the alarm bell rings he puts it all on the line,
dedicating himself to the community.

The paramdic is at once the most fortunate
and least fortunate of men.
He savours life because 
he has seen too much death.
He is gentle because he has seen too much
of the awesome power of violent forces out of control.
He is responsive to a childs laughter,
because his arms have held too many
small bodies that will never laugh again.

He is a man who appreciates
the simple pleasures of life:
hot coffee, held in frozen,
unbending fingers.
The cry of a newborn baby.
The comradeship of brave men.
The divine peace and satisfaction
of selfless service and a job well done-
In the name of all men
for the greatest good of mankind.

He doesn’t wear buttons, wave flags,
shout obsenities, throw stones,
riot or strike,
And when he marches,
It is to honour a fallen paramedic,
One who dies that another should live.
He doesn’t preach the brotherhood of man,
HE LIVES IT.
