Age doesn't mean a thing. Edna Mitchell (87) is the prime example. In the American state Maine, she is the oldest rescue-worker at the job! Although she graduated in 1978, Edna has always worked as a volunteer at the fire-department of Liberty, Maine. Edna claims to have seen it all: from mothers going into labor to serious rescue operations such as pulling someone out of the snow during a mean winter.
At Edna's most recent rescue, a passenger got stuck in a crashed car. She jumped into a ditch trying to stabilize the victim's head. Someone got to the victim quicker and she is happy about that. She claims that speed is the key to a successful rescue! When Edna turned 65, she refused to retire. She doesn't believe we're too old to work at age 65. Edna believes saving lives is more important than retirement, especially when you're mentally and physically stabile to do the job!
Adna's drive must set an example for us. If you do what you love and love what you do, you can do it forever. Watch this brave lady in action in the video below and don't forget to share!
