This page honors all the telegraph and ham radio operators, 
lighthouse keepers
and others, whose vigilance helps secure for our bodies the
safe foundation upon which our minds can erect a spiritual
world.  We thank them for listening and watching, that our
cries for help may be heard, and the forces which would beset
us be detected.  
<P>This page also honors all those who await their
alert, to come to our aid and deliver us from evil: 
firemen, coastguardsmen, Emergency Medical Technicians and others.

"Sadly, in
1995 the United States Coast Guard stopped routinely using the morse code to converse with ships at sea. This ended a long
tradition. Morse code however will always remain a viable means of providing highly reliable communications during
difficult communications condtions."<br>
(<a href="http://www.neca.com/~cummings/morse.html">Morse Code Home Page</a>)<P>
"...to have substituted for the magical
communion of species and the confusion of distinct orders a spiritual relation in which beings remain
at their post but communicate among themselves will have been the
imperishable merit of the 'admirable
Greek people,' and the very institution of
philosophy."<br>
(Emmanuel Levinas, <I>Totality and Infinity</i>, p. 48)
