Milk and rice
S. Eisenberg and J. Benbenishty
My Editor's Choice this issue is a poignant, experience-from-the-field article that captures the essence of nursing in a few powerful words. Over the last two years the world has sat back and watched a humanitarian crisis unfold in Syria. Muhammad is a wounded Syrian in an Israeli hospital where nurses care for the war wounded, enemy or otherwise. These two authors write of nurses' efforts to bring comfort to this man through the offering of rice and milk at the end of Ramadan. The compassionate voice of nursing speaks out to us: "Humanity seeks to restore peace where there is anxiety, kindness where there is cruelty and boundless love and care, where there is desolation and despair. Nurses are the true ambassadors of peace. Rice and milk? Certainly."
