I often think of how everyone wishes to be the innovator, the boss, the spear-head, the unique voice, the “one” in rescue, and how nothing has harmed rescue as greatly as those things. Those things are really just one in the same. . .the inability to unify and work for the greater good in spite of differences.
Rescues come and go constantly. The reputation of “rescue,” in general, is poor, as so many end up in disaster.
