I disagree. We train and practice to help people on the worst day in their lives. When trajedy occurs, people function as they're trained. Panic sets in when people feel overwhelmed, helpless, or don't have the training. We train for the worst.
Nobody wants to see people severely sick or injured. There are 2 choices, be helpless, or train to be helpful. We have chosen to be helpful rather than helpless.
