Yesterday this, http://www.aol.com/video/confessions-of-an-emt/517572073/ ran on America Online's Homepage. Nearly half a million people viewed it, and lots of those people linked here, and some of those took the time to leave comments on some of the posts. I'm still amazed that half a million people saw the piece, I can't really comprehend that many people, it just seems so vast.

Thanks to Adam Kaufman for taking the trip from NYC just days after Hurricane Sandy decimated the area, and capturing what we do so well, and thanks too to everybody who visits here, I read all the comments and appreciate each and every one.

The story in the video is true, I wrote about it in a blog post when I was feeling particularly philosophical.

    A half-million viewers, huh? That's what, a quarter of your daily readership here? ;-)
    Terrible thing in Connecticut today. Prayers to all involved, including the responders, since no one ever thinks of them (well, us). They're affected too, especially since it's a volunteer FD.
    Hug your loved ones a little tighter tonight, and give thanks for them.

Once again, Michael, a simple, caring action probably helped more than any medical intervention.

Michael, you have not lost your touch. :-) PS. Last time I rode in one of your "cadillacs", I was a pretty good girl. I only vomited a little bit. The blood stayed in a contained area. Aren't you proud of me? LOL. PS I thanked Stephanie and the other EMT too. Take care Buddy.…
