He ex­plained what had hap­pened.

“This man on the stretcher,” he added, “is be­ing taken to hos­pi­tal. This wo­man is a para­medic, this man is a po­lice­man, these are sol­diers, and these look like vol­un­teers.

“And they are all here to help.

“Ev­ery time some­thing bad hap­pens, good peo­ple turn up to help. And that’s not nothing.”

I nod­ded in silent agree­ment. That’s a lot.
