Whether you have saved someone from a dramatic scene such as a fire, or perhaps drowning…or you have saved someone from mental devastation that would have left them to death soon…you can consider yourself a hero.
My mom told me a story of how she was driving down a road by her house, and she saw some smoke coming out of a ravine. A car had gone down the side of the ravine and was engulfed in flames. This was about 30 years ago. No cell phones, and she was at least 10 minutes from a landline phone. My mom pulled over, hiked down the ravine, and despite her petite build, managed to pull a man and his wife from the mess. The man needed less help to get out so she helped him first, but he was unable to assist moving his wife. The lady was big, and her leg was jammed and pinned under the back seat. My mom was perhaps a third of her weight, yet somehow managed to muster the adrenaline to pull her out. Both survived the trauma and with relatively minimal injury.
The question is – IF YOU WERE FACED WITH CIRCUMSTANCES OF DANGER, WOULD YOU SAVE ANOTHER’S LIFE? I imagine that you would say yes.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. You too, can be a hero and help save another’s life - place an order by 10/31/11 for TheraLips Breast Cancer Awareness Lip Balm and InnoPack will donate a portion of the proceeds to support breast cancer research conducted by Susan G Komen for the Cure.
How heroic are you?
