It is one thing to know your roots and another to appreciate your roots.:

β€œCan you name a single one of the great fundamental and original intellectual achievements which have raised man in the scale of civilization that may be credited to the Anglo-Saxon? The art of letters, of poetry, of music, of sculpture, of painting, of the drama, of architecture; the science of mathematics, of astronomy, of philosophy, of logic, of physics, of chemistry, the use of the metals, and the principles of mechanics, were all invented or discovered by darker and what we now call inferior races and nations. We have carried many of these to their highest point of perfection, but the foundation was laid by others. Do you know the only original contribution to civilization we can claim is what we have done in steam and electricity and in making implements of war more deadly? And there we worked largely on principles which we did not discover. Why, we didn’t even originate the religion we use. We are a great race, the greatest in the world today, but we ought to remember that we are standing on a pile of past races, and enjoy our position with a little less show of arrogance. We are simply having our to what is, all in all, the greatest race the world ever produced, is almost ashamed to own it. If the Anglo-Saxon is the source of everything good and great in the human race from the beginning, why wasn’t the German forest the birthplace of civilization, rather than the valley of the Nile?”

Appreciate where you came from as a HUMAN race and the history and struggle that has made you who you are today.

#RP Again, fellow nurses give this serious inquiry if you want your loans paid….Loan forgiveness and working among underserved populations

rebeccanprogress:

imageAs of July 2013, HRSA designated over 4,000 Medically Underserved Areas/Populations (MUA or MUP) where residents have a shortage of health services or include groups of persons with economic, cultural, or linguistic barriers to health care.
