I’m not a naturally positive person, so I take my upbeats where I can.
I live in a urbanish setting. I work in a crowded suburban setting. Sirens are part of my everyday sounds. They don’t turn my head, but they do register and I think to myself, “No matter how bad this day is going, someone else is having a much worse day.”
That’s what sirens are to me: An affirmation that things ain’t as bad as they could be.
