Saving Lives

The hospital was full of patients clinging to life after an explosion at a gasoline station.

Darkness had set in by the time my shift ended at the hospital and it began to snow as I walked to my car.

I felt exhausted and mindlessly drove away slowly, but became very alert when I saw a woman carrying a bundle. She was having difficulty walking as she pushed against the wind and snow.

I noticed a vehicle nearby that had apparently slid off the road and hit a tree.

I stopped, got out and as I approached her I saw small feet protruding from the bundle. The child was motionless.

Tears and snow covered her face as she looked at me with pleading eyes.

I rushed her and the child to the hospital.

The woman and child were in serious condition, but I knew they would recover.
