I saw this meme today, and it made me think of how thankful I am for engineers. Last year, my family was involved in an auto accident near our home. We walked away from that accident because of those excellent engineers at Ford Motor Company.
I am thankful for the first responders of the South Jordan police, fire, and paramedic teams. They were at the accident site in no time, checking on everyone involved.
I am thankful for my buddy Geoff who works at Unique Collision Repair in South Jordan. He was my first call at the accident site and he walked me through everything I needed to do to get the car taken care of in the short term. He made the tow calls and later handled everything with my insurance company. The day after the accident, he went over the damage with me and explained the marvels of modern engineering that kept my family safe inside the cab of our Freestyle.
I am thankful to everyone at Unique Collision Repair who took that wreck and put it back together as good as new!
I am thankful to my insurance company, Horace Mann, who took care of getting us a rental and were just great to work with.
A lot of wonderful people were involved that night with protecting and helping my family.
When you have been helped, when you have been rescued, when you have been medically treated, when you have been educated, when you have been mentored - those were people who did that. People who gave to you from their time and hard earned talents.
... and aim it in the right direction.
