There are four nurses included in the Time Magazine “Person of the Year” – the Ebola Fighters! These nurses are
- Kaci Hickox, wrongfully quarantined in New Jersey and then Maine after returning from Sierra Leone where she was treating Ebola patients.
- Iris Martor, a school nurse in Monrovia, the capital city of Liberia. who is working locally to educate, protect, and help people in her local community to overcome the devastating epidemic in her country.
- Nina Pham and Amber Vinson, nsures at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital who contracte Ebola while caring for Mr. Duncan, who arrived in Texas with Ebola and died while in the Texas hospital.
I was impressed, in reading each of their stories, of their statements of commitment to caring for those in need, and recognizing the dangers involved they remained steadfast in expressing their values.
