Scripture of the Day

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.                    KJV (Joshua 1:9)


Nurses are more
Than people in white.
They are mediators,
between human suffering
and human wellness;
Where what they do
Goes far beyond
What is seen.

Nursing Poetry

tribute to rebecca anderson, lpnTribute to Rebecca Anderson, LPN

Rebecca was an LPN that responded to the Oklahoma City Bombing and courageously gave of herself to help the injured. While she was inside the Federal building caring for the sick, she was struck by a piece of concrete debris from a falling wall. The incident ultimately led to her death (five days later). This tribute is to pay honor to her memory and valiant act. 

It is with great pride and a heartfelt sadness I add this nursing tribute to my collection. This ones for you, Rebecca!

In the scope of this great earth
You are more than just a name
You're an Angel without wings
Won the Golden Heart of Fame

See the Golden Heart of Fame
Is no easy task to reach
It's an honor in God's home
All the Angels do beseech

And the Angels stand in awe
At the risk that you did take
You were willing to risk all
For the lives that were at stake

It's a given fact, you know
How a nursing heart does act
It's a quality innate
Selflessly they do react

And this was the beauty seen
In Rebecca's heart that day
Never once did she look back
As she saw the victims lay

As a tribute to her life
There's a special gift above
That the Angels all admire
For her precious act of love

It's a heart made of pure gold
On a stand that's crystal clear
With a radiance so keen
Every night it does appear

If at night we look above
There's a shine that's meant to be
Don't mistake it for the stars

         It's Rebecca's Gift We See."

This poem is dedicated to all those nurses, who like Rebecca, have given their lives in the line of duty. A heartfelt thank you to one and all.
