I received my mission call almost two weeks ago. I am going to the Texas Dallas Mission, Spanish speaking. I am so excited! I have been waiting for this for a long time. I had health problems that prevented me from going when I turned 19. I am so thankful for Heavenly Father who helped me get through all my hard times. It is because of him that I am in this position to go on a mission. Since I'm a little older now and more mature, I'm sure I will be able to provide something more than the average missionary and I am so thankful for that.
I received this in an email and I thought it would be a good idea for all of us to know this.
A good idea for all of us ....
Apparently this is a standard procedure all paramedics follow at the scene of an accident when they come across your cell phone.
ICE - 'In Case of Emergency'
We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.
If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this 'ICE' (In Case of Emergency) Campaign. The concept of 'ICE' is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell(mobile) phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name 'ICE' ( In Case Of Emergency). The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, th ere were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn't know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as 'ICE.' For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference! Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!
What is going on the Utah Jazz fans being so disrespectful? I have heard, read, and seen the Jazz fans being so disrespectful toward former Jazz player, Derek Fisher. Yeah I know he left the Jazz for the Lakers but Fisher went to the Lakers so he could live in L.A. to help his daughter receive the best treatment for his daughters eye cancer. I am not a Jazz Fan and certainly not a Laker fan but come on, Utah is supposed to be "Mormon country." Aren't we all about family? He was just looking out for his family and daughter. It makes me so mad that the fans booed him and made not so good comments toward him during this playoff series. I heard that one fan covered his eye (making fun of his daughters eye cancer) and started screaming nasty stuff toward Fisher. I know that not everybody in Utah is Mormon but we need to be better people and cheer for him because he was doing what was best for his family. And who cares if he is gone from the Jazz. It looks like the Jazz are doing just fine without him.
