Let Us Light the Way

The storms bring darkness
Many lost in their own homes
Let us light the way

These endless summer storms have knocked out the power again and again. This night, a facility for the elderly lost all electricity, no back up generator, no elevator. An outside summer dinner left many trapped in wheelchairs, with no way to get back to their apartments.

Though our job is primarily being there in the worst moments of people's lives, and trying to reverse a deadly situation, it's moments like these, nights like these, where simply carrying people up flights of stairs make the job worth it.

Though a bit blurry, I was able to take a quick snap with my cell of my partner making her way down a dark apartment hallway trying to find the door to a stairwell, so we can grab another stranded resident, and carry them back up through the gloom to their home.
this makes for a very intriguing image... i can't imagine what your life looks like on a daily basis... the news is always so full of awful, heartbreaking things - most of us are rarely directly touched by them... and yet you are likely living them every day...

A very dramatic and powerful shot that looks awesome on black.
Keep up the good fight - you are truly a light in the darkness.
A FAV (you and pic - lol!)

What a wonderful image combined with your narrative. Thank you for being there for others when they need help so desperately.
