We Cannot Let This Happen Again!

We are one world filled with many nurses. We have been fighting a war against the invisible SARS-CoV-2 virus to save the lives of others. This work has been written to honor the memory of the world’s nurses, other healthcare workers and first responders who lost their lives fighting in this war. Their sacrifice will not be forgotten!

The COVID-19 pandemic has left massive loss of life, and an enormous number of permanently disabled people in its wake. Pandemics are an inevitable consequence of an overpopulated planet – there will be more. There are countless micro-organisms in our environment that can cause great harm to the human population.

We cannot let this happen again. In memory of those who lost their lives or their health, we ask you to join with us in doing everything that we can to learn from past mistakes.
