Numerous companies and corporations throughout the United States have made significant displays of generosity towards those affected by the 2007 California wildfires. While those actions are appreciated by many, there are thousands of people that dedicated their time and talents during the past two weeks, that the major media will less likely report about.
While the events were tragic and the devastation for many has yet to sink in, random acts of human kindness were plenty, during the days here since October 21. While the concept is not unique to chiropractors, there is a philosophy espoused amongst many of those in the profession of chiropractic to give for the sake of giving, serve for the sake of serving, and love for the sake of loving.
So when local chiropractors in San Diego began laying their hands on firefighters traveling in from their own state of California, Idaho, North Dakota, Oregon, and other states, they lived up to the old-school code in chiropractic to above all "serve mankind." They didn't call PR media firms, they didn't make deliberate contact with local news, they just made their way to where they were needed most, and volunteered their services, expecting nothing financial in return.
What chiropractor Vic, Dr. Victor BJ Krauss of San Diego, didn't know while he was serving one of the many firefighters that received an adjustment from him, was that one particular gentleman came from a family of firefighters who happen to frequent my office in Los Angeles, and I was notified about this chiropractors participation. In that lives another principle, you can't out-give the giver.
So Dr. Victor Krauss, who is located at 6753 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92115, deserves some recognition and appreciation from those of us in the profession of chiropractic for doing something the health-care industry was built upon, service to others.
Give Dr. Victor a call at 619-460-2887 and tell him he is in the news for his dedicated service to mankind, and that he is greatly appreciated for doing so.
Other chiropractors deserving recognition for serving others without expectation include Drs. Matt Hubbard (of Convoy Village Chiropractic) and Brian Stenzler. Both doctors practice in San Diego, California.
