    Quote from bighousenurse
    "One Moment in Time", by Whitney Houston...everytime I hear it, I think of being on the stage at my pinning ceremony. I remember the instructor's sitting in the first 2 rows of the auditorium, and when the speaker announced our class, they all stood up first and applauded, followed by the rest of the room. I bawled like a baby! Our class had so many hard times, personal and otherwise. It was nice to see their support, for as hard as they were on some of us going through school, there was a reason for their "madness". I look back on those times, and am thankful they were the way they were. That song still chokes me up.
    Funny, but I remember my pinning ceremony everytime I hear "Chariots of Fire." My friend said that her mom graduated from nursing school in the early 80's and that was her pinning ceremony song. We all laughed about it when our class was trying to come up with a song.

    The song that we walked in the auditorium to was by Enya. We also had "Hero" by Mariah Carey play at one point. I don't care much for Mariah, but the lyrics apply. As a nurse, I don't really feel like a hero. I'm just a person with the education and technical skills to change lives.

    I laughed out loud when someone in the class suggested the Styx song "Come Sail Away." To me the lyrics suggest death, possibly an untimely death. My DH says it's about alien invasion.

    Lightning Crashes by Live...kind of sad but sometimes true.

    Lightning crashes, a new mother cries.
    Her placenta falls to the floor.
    The angel opens her eyes.
    The confusion sets in,
    Before the doctor can even close the door.

    Lightning crashes, an old mother dies.
    Her intentions fall to the floor.
    The angel closes her eyes.
    The confusion that was hers,
    Belongs now to the baby down the hall.

    Oh now feel it coming back again.
    Like a rolling thunder chasing the wind.
    Forces pulling from the center of the earth again.
    I can feel it.

    Lightning crashes, a new mother cries.
    This moment she's been waiting for.
    The angel opens her eyes.
    Pale blue colored iris.
    Presents the circle and puts the glory out to hide, hide.
