Retired Doctors and Nurses Rush Back to Help Those in Need in NYC

Picture by Melinda Modisette

Although putting themselves at high risk, retired doctors and nurses answered immediately when the Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, called for help. Due to their age range, most of these doctors and nurses are the people most susceptible to COVID-19. But who else knows the medical procedures? Who else are qualified to take care of patients in hospitals? We are in the midst of a time, like all those Alfred Hitchcock movies, where ordinary people are thrown into extraordinary situations. And just like those heroic moments such as Spock’s “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few” (The Wrath of Khan), every day citizens in the real world are rising to the challenge. People the same as you and me have been called upon in this specific situation by chance and they rise. They rise for the good of all the other people who need their help because one day when we, in turn, are called upon, they know that we too shall rise for the good of the many.
