Thank the Nurses and First Responders!

At NYU hospital, 200 patients, including 20 newborns, were evacuated and carried down several flights of stairs by hardworking nurses and medical center personnel.  First responders saved hundreds of lives up and down the East Coast, especially in New York and New Jersey. Rescue workers, firefighters, and medical workers put their lives on the line last night. And we know they'll continue to be there for us in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and beyond.

    We were saddened by the seemingly endless stream of pictures of destruction from Hurricane Sandy yesterday. But there was a bright spot that gave us hope and made us deeply grateful: The work of the nurses and first responders to save lives.

    At NYU hospital, 200 patients, including 20 newborns, were evacuated and carried down several flights of stairs by hardworking nurses and medical center personnel. (1) First responders saved hundreds of lives up and down the East Coast last night, especially in New York and New Jersey. (2) Rescue workers, firefighters, and medical workers put their lives on the line last night. And we know they'll continue to be there for us in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and beyond.
