Coin of the Month: Tending the Wounded
This is the 1st coin in the Courage series of the Nurse Commemorative Coin Series. This coin honors the attributes of Courage, Dedication, and Perseverance.
“Why have nurses always been there?
Counting every precious drop of blood.
Lives flashing with each scene.
Feeling hot turn to cold, cold to warm.
Breathe the breath of calm
In the storm of it all,
And deliver up serene.
Why have nurses always been there?
Is it something that you’re born to?
Not for the sake of war,
But for the Hope of Peace.”
