Early Responders (Video)

All together, there were four different organizations of first-responders represented in some way at our conference.

For a while now, Elie has been part of a first-responders group of young men who answer any beeper call within reach of wherever they are. At our recent conference, Dave Carroll sang a song that I’ve come to like very much (it’s called Everyday Heroes Song) and is featured on his site.

“When People in the world need saving the saviors who answer the call Don’t get paid anymore for danger or get to pick the one’s they want They just go to where the few will go and maybe lay it all on the line As they do their job, and do it one more time.” I wanted to support Elie’s group and so I invited them to set up a table at the conference to tell others about what they do and some people even donated money for their organization. The men who did the videos included my son-in-law, who recently finished the army after giving two years of service to our country, and three others – who not only videotape, but are also first-responders.

All together, there were four different organizations of first-responders represented in some way at our conference. At one point, someone in the hotel, floors above us, had called for help of some sort. I never did find out, but in seconds, Elie and the others went running out of the conference to see if they could help.

I thought of the song as I waited to know they’d returned to the conference and all was well. Silly that I worried, knowing where they were but I just can’t get passed that feeling when Elie goes running somewhere. But he goes, they went … in seconds…they were off.

Cause they made a promise and here they come Someone hurtin’ called 9-1-1 And the siren’s sayin’ hope is on the way There’s a hero racing to help a stranger today If you haven’t seen Dave’s video, here it is again….
