link to prompt:https://100wc.net/week35/

Dear Andrew,

Thank you for saving so many lives and doing all of the training needed to do this job.  How hard is it to work without proper tools or equipment? Are there any problems you have faced over the years you have been doing this? Is it hard doing your job saving people in the dark? Was it hard to stay away from your family? Was a doctor the job you always wanted to do or was it another job? Is there pressure on you that you put on yourself? Thank you for doing a good job

From Amelia
