There’s this phrase that’s been making the rounds the last few years that has really got me a bit ticked off.

A week ago, a friend of ours took part in Albany’s Pride parade. She spoke of how happy and together people felt that day. Gay men and lesbian women who had struggled so long and hard for acceptance could march in a parade, waving a flag of many colors, a symbol of their pride. And people cheered.

A woman, who police say was intoxicated, falls to the bottom of a 60-foot cliff. A man, enjoying an outing with friends, slips off the top of  a dam, down a steep spillway  coated with mud and debris, and lands on rocks below the spillway,  a fall of 35 feet. Both survive. Both are rescued. But their salvation required rescuers trained in the art of “rope rescue.”
