When i started my nursing career, in 1994
I remember, all of my old folks--:and--their--sacrifices--for--SURE

I would go room to room, caring for my --ELDERLY
It --amazed-- me, --how --many --of --the --old --classic --movies--they --never --watched --it, --and-- for-- the --first --time,-, WITH--ME-- on--THEIR--room--T.V.
