Death and EMS

I am no stranger to death on both a personal and professional level. I can walk into someone’s home, find them pulseless on the ground, give it my all, and not think about it again. It’s what I signed up for. What gets me every time, though, is when a person is dying, but awake and talking to you. It’s the look in their eyes. The fear on their face. It’s when they say, “I’m not ready to go. I don’t want to die. Please don’t let me die.” Gets me every fucking time. I hate seeing people so scared before they die. I’d rather get hit by a train then go out like that. (via thechickenmedic)

I will hold back on the “bro you’re rig is the wrong color” because I WANTTTT THIS! ( his looks like the engine that we have at my station…except ours is red…)
