When disaster strikes, heroes emerge. Nurses do great things every day. MENCHU DELUNA SANCHEZ, a Filipino registered nurse in NYU-Langone, organized a group of medical professionals to carry 20 critical babies down nine flights of stairs, with illuminations from cellphones to guide their way.
As part of their daily lives, they care for their patients under-paid and under-staffed. But in extreme circumstances, a few nurses shine more than others. It is so heartwarming that the nurses are finally getting their spotlight.
Twenty innocent children, along with six adults, killed by gunfire in Newtown, Connecticut.
It is a senseless tragedy that defies any explanation or understanding. And because this time, the kids fell victim to one man’s insanity, the nation shares in the heartbreak.
The healing will be a difficult and lonely road.
