AJ: ...They said he was probably just going to die because of the reality of how many people were in that situation. And it was my first experience, so I thought, well we should get him out of here, we should do something, we should get him hospital care... And you know, realizing that this is one kid in thousands, and you can't do that really, it doesn't work that way. So he would die, and he was alone, and he was really scared, and he was just a kid.
Interviewer: Did you hear any more about him?
Interviewer: When you see something like that, do you feel very small against the enormity of the problem?
AJ: Yeah, maybe, but no, at the same time I think it makes you realize the importance of every single individual. Yes, it is an enormous problem, but it is true, they say if one person lives... Each individual counts. If there's twenty million people and one kid lives, one family makes it, then... Every individual does count, so that's what that makes me think. That makes me think that (...) Because I had that experience, maybe that next kid I'll know what to do, I'll be prepared, or I'll put that much more effort into helping that next kid, because that other kid haunts me so much.
