Give your loved ones a hug.

As a nurse, I see many losses. I am surrounded by illness and loss. I comfort the dying and help those that are grieving.

Nothing is harder than seeing the unexpected loss of a child. It is truly heart wrenching. Hearing a mother's cry of grief is almost unbearable.

Last night I responded to a "code blue" in ER. It was a 5 month old baby that had been found after being laid down to sleep one hour earlier. Most likely the death will be ruled SIDS.

Please remember that life is so precious yet so fragile. Let go of petty arguments. Treat each other kindly and most of all show your love and know that sometimes people can be gone in a blink of the eye.
