Paramedics are he­roes

RE: Brian Older: Life­saver loses his own can­cer bat­tle, ET, June 12.

Al­though I never knew Brian, I do know sev­eral Paramedics in the Am­bu­lance Ser­vice and I know that they will be griev­ing the loss of a col­league along with his fam­ily. We’ve heard the word “he­roes” used so much when we talk about mil­i­tary he­roes, but paramedics are the he­roes that en­sure that other he­roes are able to re­turn and tell their story. Paramedics in the Am­bu­lance Ser­vice deal with this day af­ter day, week in and week out. Where would we be with­out these ded­i­cated men and women? For Brian the jour­ney has come to an end, but we must take heart in the fact that be­cause of his skills and ded­i­ca­tion he has al­lowed so many peo­ple to con­tinue on their own jour­ney through life for many years to come and that is his won­der­ful liv­ing legacy. We should all give thanks to him and peo­ple like him as he rest in peace.
