March 17 marks one year after an accident on county Road 60 at the intersection of Klingler Road.
For a second, I was sure of two, possibly three people killed; but by the hand that guides us through situations we have no control over, one was not hit, the other two were treated, then released.
Police and rescue were called. The young man and I, who were hit, were taken to Lima Memorial Health System. In this response, I saw people and equipment efficiently, professionally and lovingly spring into action for our care and safety.
I have wanted to express my thanks ever since but neglected this wonderful network of people who cared for me and checked me out top to bottom physically and emotionally by walking me to the door as they said I would be OK.
This network of people, equipment and technology was on guard for whatever life flight I would have needed. Thankfully, I physically needed nothing. The assurance given me when I was walked to the door was an emotional life flight possibly not known to them but warm and tenderly accepted by me. Thank you so much for being there for me.
There was a children's life flight at Memorial's landing pad a few weeks ago and I was moved to photograph it as a reminder of who they were and what they are ready for at any given need.
With this photo, remember you are always a life flight for someone. Please find picture at Lima Memorial Emergency. The picture is not a show stopper but the service people who got it there are.
