16. My mom

Was a polio nurse during that epidemic. She thought Dr. Salk was a hero.

She went to the Rocky Mountains to nurse polio patients (I have no idea why the Rockies). Years later when we vacationed at Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons we had to fly over the Rockies, rather than drive through them. She refused to go near them because her memories of that time were so terrible. She said she got into an iron lung to see what her patients experienced.

I worry about the doctors and nurses who are dealing with covid patients. And I'm furious with the brainwashed and entitled brats who protest masks and stay at home orders.
