First aid

With the recent spate of gun violence comes a question: “What is to be my response?” Thoughts and prayers alone won’t cut it so I’m considering a one day first aid trauma course. I’d be trained to render immediate care to anyone hurt in any sort of accident … gunshot wounds included. It’s unlikely that I’ll ever encounter a gunshot victim. Still, I’d feel that I had done something … maybe not about about gun violence per se … but to give aid … to relieve suffering … however the suffering comes about … that is no small matter … and it is certainly a Christian vocation.
