The Lady with the Lamp
Today Florence Nightingale was born. Let’s remember her with thanks. It takes guts and determination to keep going in the face of adversity and she faced that in spades. Despite her well-to-do upbringing, she wasn’t taken seriously at first when she first made plans to go to the Crimean battle front. But she persisted and the rest is history. It seems like a jolly story nowadays, but it must have taken a lot of energy, courage and grim tenacity to make it happen. Happy birthday, Florence. We haven’t forgotten you!
