Somebody

ribbonSomebody has to check bodies for signs of life. Somebody has to wade through blood and gore, check pulses, shine lights in dead eyes, attach leads to bullet riddled chests and document their findings. Somebody has to ignore incessant cell phone rings, Somebody went to work yesterday, fully expecting business as usual, and instead found themselves in a nightmare.

Somebody’s career is over. Somebody’s nightmares have just begun.

Stay safe everybody, at any given time, on any given shift, that somebody could be any one of us.

Thoughts and prayers for the victims, their friends and families and the people who responded, and will continue to do so for as long as they are able.
