Nurses around the world are by your side with pride, respect, sorrow and shame. Your service to all should not have put you in danger and your family to lose your love, care and presence. God bless you. God bless your care and faithful support of your peer. Had I been your peer, I would pray I had your courage.
I will always keep in my prayers as an example of the nurse we all want to be like.
