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.

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."

"...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."
(Emmanuel Levinas, Totality and Infinity, p. 48)
