Bringing Comfort to New York City
Mother Nature certainly created the mood for the US Navey Hospital ship Comfort to make its entry to the New York City west side. What a powerful tug of emotional war it was to watch the stately trip up the river with its escort of ships and Coast Guard and news media helicopters. Deep sadness to think of the thousands of ill and dying people in and around the city, the country and the world. But also hope and belief in recovery; hope that better and more testing and treatment, proper equipment and potective gear will soon be available And...intense gratitude for all of the people in the medical, maintenance and assciated professions that are showing such courage and cvommitment, working far more and longer hours than anyone should have to. God Bless and protect you!!! We can't see the end of this, we haven't seen the worst of it yet- only the beginning But this big white beacon of hope and caring and dedication will keep shining here in NYC to help see us through.
