"You (meaning me) as a Superhero"
My Mother was a nurse ... an OB nurse. When we went to the Grocery Store we were always stopped by Mother's who adored my Mother because she was their nurse when their babies were born. To me she was a superhero. Of course, I chose to follow in her footsteps and I became a nurse later in life. I worked in a University Hospital in Chicago and I worked beside many Superheroes. Today, I still know those nurses and they and all medical staff are without exaggeration the SuperHeroes of this generation. Our Nurses and Doctors are putting themselves on the line for us every day ... putting their own lives at risk to help the millions who are or have been in our ICU's with the Corona Virus. And, feeling the heartbreak of the thousands of Americans who have died. They are getting no help and, in fact, are being belittled by some who would claim that the Corona Virus is a hoax. What a shameful Display of Disrespect!!! I have never faced this virus in an ICU because I retired 20 years ago and am, at my age, considered high risk. But, I wish every day that I could be there to help. I also wish every day that the people in our country would take seriously the need to follow the CDC recommendations for protecting ourselves and others from this virus so that our hospitals aren't overrun with the climbing numbers of new cases. There will be no end to this nightmare until people find it in their hearts to care for others. Is that so much to ask?
On the lighter side ... This is the first and only self portrait I will probably ever attempt because I could cover up all of the difficult parts with a mask ... so , this is me wishing I could really be the Superhero in this picture.
