I don't mean to belittle what you did, but saying thousands of lives depended on you is a bit facile. The same argument could be made with a 911 operator who simply presses a button to connect someone with emergency services. Or an air traffic controller who simply does the normal, run-of-the-mill tasks to prevent air crashes.
