A Brief Observation

Working across the street from a major hospital, one of the more common sights is a helicopter arriving with what is probably a patient in extremely serious condition. I have noticed that whenever one of the choppers lands, people stop. Visitors, patients, nurses, workers, doctors -- we all stand and stare at the helicopter landing on the roof.

Is this a moment of mortality and awareness that there but for the grace of God? ...

 (This is a medical chopper from La Crosse I came across at an accident in Wisconsin a few weeks ago.)
