d20 Modern: Beginnings
Angel of Mercy Hospital
“48 hours in the life of a burnt-out paramedic. Once called Father Frank for his efforts to rescue lives, Frank sees the ghosts of those he failed to save around every turn. He has tried everything he can to get fired- calling in sick, coming in late, delaying taking calls where he might have to face one more victim he can’t help- yet cannot quit the job.”
“I gotta get a drink. Sobriety’s killing me.” “You said if I came in late for another shift, you’d fire me.” “Oh, I see. With all the poor people of this city who wanted only to live and were viciously murdered, you have the nerve to sit here, wanting to die, and not go through with it? You make me sick!” “I realized that my training was useful in less than ten percent of the calls, and saving lives was rarer than that. After a while, I grew to understand that my role was less about saving lives than about bearing witness. I was a grief mop. I was enough that I simply turned up.”
