When the ambulance drives by

Monish SubherwalBlogLeave a Comment

One of the things I tell my daughters to say as an ambulance or firetruck or police drives by is: “Go save them!”  As cheesy as that sounds, its something I do myself (or at least say a silent prayer “Om shanti” which means “Peace”) for those people who are in distress. When we don’t do things like this – acknowledge the suffering of others, the situation looses urgency, gravity, and we miss an opportunity to practice empathy or compassion. For many, we remain silent and/or annoyed as an ambulance or firetruck or police forces us to slow down and get out of the way — forgetting all too quickly that at their destination someone in need is requiring them.
