The warrior for life looks up at the night sky
and thanks God and whoever else is watching
that lives were saved this day.
The war is not done,
it is far from won,
but every little battle
that ends in triumph is a
victory for humankind.
"Please grant me the power to save,
the power to heal, to comfort,
and if this be my last day on Earth,
let me rest with the memory
that I did all I could to ease
another one's suffering in the night
and the memory that I did what
my calling destined me to do."
