One of Us, from Uniform Stories

Entry Img

http://uniformstories.com/one-of-us One of Us byMichael Morse There were two hunting knives on the kitchen table when we first arrived, and the soldier was eyeballing them. We got him past those and into the rescue without incident. For that, I am truly thankful. His wife had called us because he was acting strangely, and had been […]

These Hands

Entry Img

These hands. These wonderful works of art through which more art is created. These hands have held a newborn as it suckled the teat of her mother, held the hand of a dying man as his days ebbed to hours, minutes, then seconds until the life that animated left his fingertips. These hands have built […]

Coming To

Entry Img

Somebody in the media contacted me and wants to film a segment about the effects of Narcan. My recent OP/ED in The Providence Journal warned against widespread distribution of the drug, which in my opinion will serve to take the fear of overdosing away from those vulnerable to addiction and lead to more deaths than […]

Stealing Vicodin

http://www.newschannel9.com/news/top-stories/stories/sequatchie-county-ems-employee-arrested-allegedly-stealing-ingesting-hydrocodone-9718.shtml People drive drunk. The beat other people up.

Entry Img

A new song from U2 comes on the radio, and the kid behind the counter carries on about how much he hates those whiners. He looks like a roadie from the latest Kanye West tour, neck tatoos, baggy bants and a hoodie; eyes hidded by the latest incantation of fashionable sunglasses and a half a […]

Think too much

So…I’m staring at a blank screen, fiddling with the keyboard and letting my mind wander. What I want to write is in direct conflict with what I will write. I want to write about the people in EMS that I see, and know, and relate with. These are the people that will never read what […]

The Story
