Hi all,
This is a somber day for a lot of people.
Today is the 9th anniversary of the terrible tragedy that rocked the world, 9/11. We all recall what we were doing on that fateful day when the world was changed forevermore.

I was at home that day. I had just come into my bedroom, after taking a shower, when the phone rang and it was my son calling to ask if I had the t.v. on? When I said no, he told me to turn it on as something awful had happened. At first I couldn’t get my head around what I was seeing on the screen. I changed channels and every channel was showing the same thing…over and over.

I remember asking him, “What is this? What am I watching? Where is this?” It looked like a movie to me, I couldn’t figure out why he wanted me to watch this, and then I realized that this was no movie…it was dreadfully real.

I still feel sick when I see those newscasts, and today I guess they’ll be replaying them again. I think about all those brave firefighters, policemen and women, medical personnel, and of course I think of the nurses as I am one…and how hard and long they must have worked that day and all the days to come.

It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway, that my heart goes out to all the families, and friends of all those poor people that perished that horrible day, and who have to live with these memories for the rest of their lives.

Today is a day to remember the dead, and the living, and pray that sanity will one day return to our world.

I felt I needed some uplifting, and so have placed two videos on this site today, and have given them their own page entitled “Inspiring Videos”…I hope you like them. There are so many inspiring stories out there, of health-care workers who make a difference every day, I am going to look for more videos, and stories to re-tell.

If you have a video that you think is inspiring and features nurses or other health-care providers, please send me a message and let me take a look!
Have a great day, and give your loved ones a hug and remember to tell them you love them.
