In front of White House, nurses read names of colleagues killed by coronavirus

Source: The Washington Post

By Marissa J. Lang

Registered nurses gathered Tuesday in front of the White House to read the names of health-care workers who have died fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Wearing masks and standing six feet apart, the nurses held up photographs of the deceased as Melody Jones, a member of the National Nurses United union, addressed the news media in an otherwise empty Lafayette Square.

The names came from all over the country — New York and Alabama, Puerto Rico and Nevada, California and Michigan, Florida and Maryland, New Jersey and the District.

A man in blue scrubs stood behind Jones as she read, holding a metallic gold sign painted with the message: “20 seconds won’t scrub ‘hero’ blood off your hands.”

1. Every nurse deserves a medal of honor.

A Time cover. A peace prize. And our gratitude.

4. Tears of happiness for their brave fight.

Thank you to you all! Unless you're in the military, your job description shouldn't include putting your life on the line to save others.

You are heroes!
