I'm so proud of Tyler and Amanda for educating her son on how to handle the situation! He 's a very courageous child, because not many know what to do in this case. As someone who also suffers from epileptic seizures, I've come into situations that people didn't know what to do or would scare them! I think it is so important to educate children and adults on how to handle seizures! Thank you

A friend of mine saved someone from drowning in the early 1970's
Nixon wrote and signed a letter to him <<<it was considered a huge thing
even though we were hippies and at war with the establishment we still
considered it huge
fast forward
If the president were to award this kid some sort of a medal or letter of recognition
the idiots in here would say he was indoctrinating the boy
Yay

I think that the 911 operator should have tried harder to get the address rather than asking so many needless questions. He should have told the boy to go look for a piece of paper that mommy gets out of the mailbox, look in mommys purse for her id, stay on the line but call 911 from the house phone, etc. It didn't seem like he was really prepared to handle this call. Just my opinion though. I'm proud of tyler for staying calm and answering all the questions..and I'm sure his mommy is really proud of him.
truth that AOL is breeding stupidity
