7 year old hero – and i’m related to her!!

  1. Excellent! I’m happy that all went well. That proves the point that we should stop treating children as children but as little people.

    I was recently told of a story here in Kenya where the mother suddenly fainted. The two older siblings ran out of the house to get help. The young girl no more than 8 years picked up the mother’s mobile phone and called an Uncle who called for an Ambulance. By the time professional help came, the older siblings were returning flustered and with a neighbour.

    It’s also how impressively my 7 year old niece can pick up my phone and show me features that I didn’t know were even there.

    There is currently a campaign to introduce an I.C.E (In Case of Emergency) number on your phone; it could be your next of kin, best friend etc but someone who would know what to do in the event of an emergency. It would help you alot esp if the person wasn’t aware of your illness.
