Mom/Nurse for Health Care

This semester I am taking on class on social movements. So far, its been relatively interesting and I've been learning a lot that I didn't know was behind or a part of a social movement. One of our assignments was to attend and observe a social movement event. Today, I went to an event where people gathered in support of health care reform and health care for all. Various people were given the bullhorn and asked to speak and tell a personal story about why they were for health care reform. One lady, a nurse and mom, gave an impromptu speech that I thought was incredible. She is I'm sure a great nurse, but she may have missed her calling as a social movement organizer. Enjoy...
