Charlottesville ER nurse speaks out.

Very dramatic. Emotional. Grabs the reader. Not sure how that is any different from the multiple stabbings, blunt trauma arrests and gang banger shootings that roll in from 3 to 2300 not to mention the house fires, assaults and diabetic train wrecks that arrest on their couches just because they don't have anyone to take them to the doctor. Not sure a Nazi has anything to do with that...

I can identify with this. I was four months out of nursing school working in a suburban Oklahoma City hospital when the Murrah Federal Building was bombed. I heard the explosion, and then the phone rang activating the disaster plan and calling in all off-duty personnel. A former office partner on a prior job was one of the 169 victims. Every April 19 I relive the events of that day. The heroes that day were many. I just regret that there weren't more people left to save.
