Importance of Having People Who Look Out for Us

A tragic incident occurred at the World Championships in Budapest, where USA’s Anita Alvarez lost consciousness and plunged to the depths of the pool.

Her coach, Andrea Fuentes, was the only one who noticed her absence and quickly jumped into the water, fully clothed, to rescue her.

Anita was unable to move or breathe and would have drowned if not for Andrea’s swift action.

Andrea saved her life because she knew her well and cared for her deeply.
This story makes me think about the importance of having people who look out for us and help us when we are in trouble.

Who are the people in your life who would notice if you were drowning and risk their own safety to save you? Who are the people who love you enough to do that for you? And are you willing to be that person for someone else? Are you ready to pay attention and act when someone you care about is struggling and needs your support?

These are the questions we should ask ourselves as we navigate the stormy seas of life.
