Tuesday of last week (May 12) was Florence Nightingale's birthday, the woman responsible for transforming nursing practices into what we know nursing as today. Florence Nightingale's birthday also ended Nurses Week here in the US. Thanking doctors, nurses, care givers, and first responders is so important not just now, but after this global pandemic is over. It's a job I know I would never be able to do, and I have so much respect for those who care for others. I have the same respect for those who put their lives on the line in military service - both domestic and abroad.
