It was on one Friday night when I started to appreciate my life more then I ever did. As you all know I am an EMT. On that Friday night we get an ambulance call of a cardiac arrest. I saw the address our dispatcher told us to head too, and I realized that it was one of my close friends house. I get up and leave Shabbat dinner and head over there, and as I walk into the house I see my friends dad lying on the floor due to a cardiac arrest. I said to myself we can’t let him die, so we started performing CPR on him, but nothing was working. We got to the hospital and they couldn’t due anything to save him. My friend’s dad died at the age 43 due to a stupid fucking aneurism. When I saw my friend’s reaction to his father’s death, it made me realize that I need to appreciate my parents more, not just my parents but my life as well. My friend’s life was changed instantly after his father’s death, and what I realized is that it could’ve been my father. I learnt that I need to appreciate my life more. I used to take my life for granted, but after that experience I realized that life is too short, and you have to live it to the fullest, and always live everyday as if its your last. And always be happy, happiness is key to life.
