Kudos to my local hatzolah volunteers. No, Matzav readers, I’m not talking about the Hatzolah members you are thinking of. Those volunteers work in the public eye and receive regular recognition for the dedication and commitment they bring while being matzil nefashos. They deserve the accolades, of course.
I’m referring to a different sort of hatzolah. You see, I have what is often described as “issues.” Many people ignore me when they pass me by. Others go so far as to cross the street.
But some yechidei segulah, some very special people, make a conscious effort to greet me with a smile.
Kol hakavod to the unknown hatzolah members. They are truly matzil nefashos.
