Home town Heroes

I have an elderly neighbor with type one diabetes that I check up on frequently as his wife is in a rehab facility for a nasty fall she took earlier this year. I looked in on him upon returning from my family's Thanksgiving celebration and instantly saw that his blood sugar was far too low. I tried to get him to drink some apple juice but he wouldn't respond to my cajoling. It was time to call 911.

In minutes the EMS were at his home and within an hour he was sorted out and OK.

Thanksgiving night. Local heroes. Sacrifice in the home town.
