Not only will today go down in history as being the day that the Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act became law (legislation that is intended to try and help protect emergency services, NHS & Prison staff) it will also be remembered as the day when a young girl bought a cake and a coffee for a paramedic.
Several hours ago, the East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust shared a tweet on their twitter profile of a young girl pictured with paramedic Alan Brooks.
Unfortunately, we do not know the name of the young girl but what an absolute angel and sweet soul she truly is.
Not many children her age would take it upon themselves to buy a coffee and a cake for a member of the emergency services.
She is not only a credit to her family, but she is also a credit to the nation as a whole.
It just goes to show, that a random act of kindness can come in many different forms when you least expect it.
The picture of the young girl and paramedic Alan Brooks is truly heartwarming and goes to show that, although it is sad that the Assaults on Emergency Workers Act has become necessary in order to try and stop the physical attacks which our emergency services are subject to, this act of kindness also goes to show just how appreciated our emergency services are – by people of all ages.
Uplifting stories such as this one, really do help to spike the morale of our colleagues up-and-down the country who put their lives on the line in order to help a complete stranger during their moment of need.
An kind act such as this one, really can help bring the focus back on to the men, women (and children) who really do appreciate the work of our emergency services.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could somehow make this young girl an honorary member of the emergency services – although, I have no idea as to how this would work.
This young girl, who has probably never even needed the emergency services, has shown more respect to the men and women who put their lives on the line than what some adults have who repeatedly use (and sometimes abuse) our brave and heroic emergency services.
To the young girl, and her family, on behalf of the emergency services: THANK YOU!
