When I quit the ambulance, I felt like I had returned to civilian life.
I felt like I had been at war.
Everyone thinks warfare is something that doesn’t happen here…in the United States…despite the watered down tales of terror shared by the news.
I always found the news so trivial. For the most part I stopped watching it-I would spend my nights in a warzone and News was more traffic, weather, and falls latest fashion trends, when there were actual, legitmate, important narrartives playing out and nobody was being warned.
