Recent events in Dallas surrounding the advent of  the Ebola virus entering our community has set in motion a whirlwind of anger, finger-pointing, and yes, even accusations of racism surrounding the care of Dallas' first Ebola victim, Thomas Duncan.

And now, two of our own front-line caregivers are infected.

Time to pause..and cry...show love to one another and maybe take it down a notch. 

I believe that as professionals, we will stand up for what we believe but we will do it with grace and dignity. 

The world is looking at us.

So, as you get your scrubs on today, kiss your loved ones goodbye and walk through those hospital doors...breathe... and take my very own, personal nursing 'mantra' with you. It is what helped keep me grounded for over 38 years as a nurse... 

"There, but for the grace of God, go I". 

Peace be with you.
