“You’re a nurse?”
“ That’s cool, I wanted to do that when I was a kid. How much do you Make? ”
The nurse replied: “HOW MUCH DO I MAKE?”
I can make holding your hand seem like the most important thing in the world when you are scared. I can make your child breathe when they stop. I can help your father survive a heart attack. I can make myself get up at 5 am, to make sure your mother has the medicine she needs to live. I can work all day to save the lives of strangers. I make my family wait for dinner until I know your family member is taken care of. I make myself skip lunch so that I can make sure that everything I did for your wife today is charted. I make myself work weekends and holidays because people don’t just get sick Monday thru Friday.
Today I might save your life. How Much Do I Make? ALL I KNOW IS, I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
