These are the thoughts shared by Peg M, a nurse, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin:

"I have learned that I and many others will do what needs to be done with a smile on our faces and cry when we get home. I am realizing that even though I am scared for my own family, I am a nurse.

"It is my calling, my passion, and I wouldn't change it for anything. I am learning that I am stronger than I realized I was, and this applies to many of us."
