New Series ~ Fears A-Z

There are thousands upon thousands of fears in the world. Many face several fears at once, while others seem to have no fear at all.

  1. I worry but in the end overcome it… we all worry but worry never makes a difference in an emergency you simply have no time to think about it.

    I have found situations that required me to call for medical help for others..and some unfortunate sad times.
    However, I found strength in not only God, but in the fine support and kind people who supported me throughout the whole process, of getting the police or ambulance…my people at work, the ambulance, medical people, doctors and our fine police.
    Our police don’t shoot people and ask questions later. In fact our NZ police are people who are in the job because they like people
