Five weeks ago I wrote about 2020 being the Year of The Nurse. It seems like another century has passed since then.
At the time I wrote:
"When was the last time you had a nurse's support or care? Was it when she explained what the doctor had just said to you and your family that you didn't really understand? Was it when she put her arms around you for a hug when you felt alone and uncertain? Was it when she explained the complex procedure that was about to happen to you? As we face a global crisis with the coronavirus, you know who will be doing the bulk of care of the people affected...nurses."
This has come to pass, hasn't it?
I am grateful for the women and men who so unselfishly give of themselves to others. At last, literally the whole world is saying "thank you"!
I add my deep appreciation to all of you and to your colleagues on the frontlines showing up each day to serve humanity.
