Looking back and my trip from Six Flags...

Just lately some issues in my life have come up that seems to have stemmed from a situation that happened in my life. One in particular that I have not really discussed that happened about a year ago when I kinda dropped off the face of the earth. I went to Six Flags with some friends for a day of fun. I love thrill rides. Any of you who know me I am an adrenalin junkie, look at my job please, any one who finds it an honour to be concidered a 'friendly enemy combatant' and admit it has to be a bit off their rocker. Anyway, I was on a bus back to NYC and a guy had a Grand Mal out of no where. I have a son with a seizure disorder. Life took on a very surreal world to me at that time. I did not think of the danger I put my own life in by helping this man but the fact this man needed help and I knew what to do. Why I am even writing about it is beyond me, I just feel it is right thing. I know, being in a situation where you can help, but if you are not sure if you should, remember something, you may have been put there for a reason. Why I say that is this. This man would have died. No one, not even the bus driver knew how to handle this mans seizure. The fact was, when I had to move the man so he could breath I had to tell people what to do. I understand about freezing up, but there is a time and place. So often we don't know what impact we make in a persons life. Think about that. As Always, Ainge

we do not have a six flags around here, so I know nothing about them, but I haven't been to an amusement park in about 15 years. We have a big one here in Montreal called La Ronde, it is very expensive though.

You were put there for a reason by a being no one can see! You happened to be in the right place at the right time to help someone who was not ready to pass on. You did the right thing to help...live on and do the right thing!

Oh I very much agree. I was put there for a reason and have not looked back. I was just curious what others would do in certain situations. Ainge
