    Preaching to the choir

    It's so important to be ready. All the time, no matter what. Example: I NEVER go anyway without my one way mask, gloves, and a flashlight. I don't usually use anything but the light, and so the mask and gloves are a drag sometimes,and I consider leaving them behind. But tonight I was glad I had everything.
    As I was leaving my woman's sisters apartment, we found a lady passed out, half in the parking lot and half on the side walk. People walking by ignoring her, and honestly it crossed my mind to just go. But I couldn't. I gloved up went over to check her out; unresponsive, slow wet breathing, weak pulse, dilated pupils, and a syringe in her arm.
    My being there when I was is what made the difference really, but my training made the difference for me, between acting or not, and having the fear that my training requires, sealed it.
    Anyway the ambulance came, she lived, I was late for work.
    Be there, be ready.

    I assume heroin, but I don't know. Apparently there is a problem here with processed pain killers sold as heroin. So, it could be anything. But she presented like a smack OD

    Some people have morals.
    A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, But the simple pass on and are punished. Proverbs 22:3 NKJV

    Sounds like his morals are in check. Why risk you and your loved ones for a junkie who doesn't respect her own life much less yours.

    Because addictions suck. If it were your kid you would want somebody to help him or her out and if your a Christian....
