Lifting up

Recently, not far from here, a man inadvertently rode his horse into a marsh, where it became mired. All his efforts to free the animal proved ineffective, so a fire engine was called, and a rope attached to the saddle got the poor beast out. The firefighters even helped by hosing down the muddy rider.

No one would have advised the engine to back into the marsh next to the horse and try to help from there. It had to remain on solid ground to be of use. And so do we.
