Rwalker is SO right... I've made a serious effort to never use or buy anything thats not made right here in USA, I regret many purchases and many acts and I'm changing my whole mentality.
I wish & hope everyone in this country does the same thing because it would be such a HUGE solution to so so so many things... economy, terrorism, health, etc.
I can remember being in a restaurant years ago when there was a ca-motion in the far end group tabZYD3SHIPle when some wine glassed went flying, i looked and noticed a woman standing grasping the table with terror in her eyes, everyone watched & looked and after what seemed an eternity with nobody doing anything i ran across the resturant... looked at her in the eyes and asked "are you choking"...she nodded in total silence... I then got behind her and wrapped my arms around her and started trying to do the hymlic (with zero training, i kept pulling inward at her mid section so many times and so hard i thought i was seriously going to injure her...OMFG no luck
.... she's now going totally limp in my arms!!! fainted over the table (more dishes smashing) with my arms exhausted holding her and still pulling with all my might!!! BOOM...as soon as she fell forward over the table and i kept compressing a HUGE chuck of steak spilled out her mouth and all i could her was a HUGE intake of air!
she regained consciousness instantly with that gasp of air and I asked her "did I hurt you"... she responded with a huge hug, tears streaming down her face and the entire restaurant of about 100 people stood and cheered
I walked back to my table, the waiters fixed their table and called for the ambulance to stop coming (they came anyways, and checked her and she chose to stay with her family at the restaurant). The manager brought me gift certificate to the restaurant and my bill was paid for. Back to what Rwalker was saying... 100 people did nothing!!!!!!! me... I'm just a Lil nobody with no education and I had to go across a 100 foot crowded restaurant to get to her
Yes....we all need to be ready and be aware and NOT be scared to step up to bat when are time is called upon!
