He was probably talking about this poetic (and hilarious) image created by Lone Star Medics. Recent history tells us that tourniquets save lives but a lot of people still don’t carry them. So, maybe it will take some poetry or a moody picture of a flower to convince them. It’s worth a try.
Carry a tourniquet and if you need training on how to use it, look up Lone Star Medics.
