Listening to BBC on public radio the other afternoon, the amazing dedication of health care workers in difficult situations was brought home. They were interviewing a volunteer worker who has just returned from West Africa and the Ebola Virus outbreak. She had just described the horrors- medically, physically, and psychologically of the situation. She reported on her own nightmares she has been experiencing since returning. She talked about the graphic awfulness of the scenes and the upheaval in so many lives.

The interviewer then asked, expecting an obvious answer, "Would you even consider going back there into the midst of all that?"

"In a heartbeat,"
was the immediate answer.

The interviewer was flabbergasted. So was I.

Amazing dedication. These workers are amazing.
