News and Ramblings

2021 - A new year. A year that many looked forward to greatly. Those in the United States and many others watching from around the globe, witnessed civil unrest and traumatic images and words on January 6, 2021.
Arriving early for a surgery consult that day, I sat in the car and decided to check my phone for news. Expecting updates about the pandemic, I immediately fell into shock from the images of rioters breaking windows in the nation's capitol building. People harming others physically in terrible ways. I watched as one man used the American flag to hit another. I truly could not believe what I was seeing.
It was yet another stark reminder of how quickly life can change in the blink of the eye. As a nurse and grief/trauma specialist, my heart and concern, immediately went to all those inside the Capitol building that day. Their lives - now changed forever.
But it is not only those who experienced terror, first-hand on that fateful day. The ripple effects of crime and trauma flow outward in countless directions. Family members, friends, colleagues and an entire planet have now seen how violence cripples humanity.
There is much to reflect on after such an event. May all find courage and strength to press forward in peace. Differences of opinion will always be a part of human life. How we deal with differences makes a difference.
End of Another Year

2020 has been a year that has brought the topic of health and grief to the forefront around the globe. We have been forced to examine choices and decisions most of us never thought about. Now as we head into the end of the year and towards 2021, the Covid-19 pandemic continues and many questions remain.
Sadly, many have faced unbearable loss and sadness. As I write this, most hospitals across the USA are facing a true crisis. In short supply, are desperately needed ICU beds to treat patients with critical needs ranging from heart attack, stroke, Covid-19 and other serious illnesses. This scenario is playing out in many countries across the globe.
