Concerned Nurses Group

  1. Hi Everyone,

    This past week I have had two family members ask me what I am doing in this group. (My wife and mother). They asked me what such a small group of people can do to change the system. Well, I started to think that you might be experiencing the same kind of feed back. With that stated, let me tell you what I answered.

    I started with a history lesson that explained the beginnings of the AFL-CIO. It didn't work to well. I was reminded of what happened to Jimmy Hoffa. So I tried to explain it another way. (God, I'm going to date myself ) I'm a singer as well as a nurse and one of my favorite performers is Barry Manilow. His song, "One Voice" says it all.

    Just one voice, singing in the darkness
    All it takes is one voice
    Singing so they hear what's on your mind
    And when you look around you'll find

    There's more than one voice
    Singing in the darkness
    Joining with your one voice
    Each and every note another octave
    Hands are joined and fears unlocked

    If only one voice
    Would start out on its own
    We need just one voice facing the unknown
    And then that one voice would never be alone
    It takes that one voice.

    It takes that one voice

    Just one voice singing out in the darkness
    All it takes is one voice
    Shout it out and let it ring
    Just one voiceIt takes that one voice
    And everyone will sing

    We are small but determined. For ourselves, our families and our patients, join us. We started as one voice and we are getting louder. Let us set the example and be that one voice singing in the darkness. Soon others will add their voices, to unlock our fears, show us that we are not alone, and to add light to that darkness.

    With Love, Hope and Faith in God,
