Solving health crisis

Dear editor:

With the nationwide concern about the availability of hospital beds, and our community concern about the future of the Army-Navy Hospital, has anyone considered that there are hundreds of hospital rooms sitting empty up there on the hill? This could be a way to catalyze the federal government to renovate the Army-Navy campus to serve as an emergency reserve hospital facility for this crisis or the next one.

Kindness of strangers

Dear editor:

On 26 Feb at about 2:30 p.m. I was walking through the parking lot on my way to the Election Commission building to vote. Suddenly, I was face down on the asphalt bleeding profusely from a head wound above my right eye. I could hear people talking but could not see anyone because of the blood in my eyes. I did hear someone say "call 911." Someone else got me to my knees and began to try to minimize the blood flow. The first time I could see anyone was when the EMTs arrived. I was put on a gurney to be transported to NPMC-ER.

I had no opportunity to acknowledge or to thank anyone who responded to this crisis. Sadly I would not recognize anyone from this event, either. At this time I want to profusely thank everyone who participated.

While I was cleaning my jacket discovered a small ladies mitten in a pocket that can be retrieved at the business office of Country Club Village on Malvern Avenue and ask for me. Or else I will retain it as a reminder of how this day evolved. It is refreshing to know how strangers will still help strangers.
