Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Congratulations Mom!

My mom has been in university pursuing a degree for 10 years. She has changed majors a few times, and she eventually found her niche in nursing.

My mom graduated on May 6th with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing. She not only graduated, she also graduated from University as a member of an exclusive nursing honor society.

My mom went to school full time while she worked full time. She juggled an immense workload. She has also been a diabetic for nearly 44 years.

My Mom is AWESOME!
