    This was beautiful, it was something I was thinking about recently, yesterday or today. I would definitely read the bible to a patient if they wanted me too. Or pray with them. I would never think twice. I am religious myself, but at this time have been having faith issues. But this article made my heart soar, and made me realize what is ultimately truly important. Loving and serving each other.

    Thank you! And your writing is great.

    Dear CheesePotato,
    I was moved to tears by your post of May 1,2012 on the pt who wanted to pray. As a psychiatric nurse, most of my career, and an alternative healer,a Home Health nurse, a writer I thought,you should be writing. But then where would you be when these life crises come up and we need a fully present spirit on board. I do so hope you were able to go back to the student who asked the question. My guess is that she is struggling with her own mortality. I hope she stumbles across the study that showed what happened when 1 group of pts was prayed for and the control group was not.Neither group was informed of which group they were in. The prayed for group far outlived the other. Thank you, Claire

    It's during times like this in which the partition which normally separates one person from another is removed, and, for a solemn moment - a brief moment - people come to the realization that we are not that different from one another.
