While cleaning up a room at home in preparation for some new flooring, I found my original documents from when I first became certified as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) in Texas. That was way back in May of 2000 and I received it just before I graduated from high school later in the month. After renewing it twice, I decided to let my certification go this year. It expires today and although I’m sad to see it go, I know that sometimes you have to let one thing go so that you can excel in something else.
