"The Last Supper" Leonardo da Vinci, explained by art historians

Flying to my Uncle’s house in Rome, Italy, with my sister, for Holy Week/Easter ( Vatican City is one of my favorite places in the world. And the gelato is tops). First holiday I will have spent with family in many years - Usually stuck working holidays since I am at the bottom of the food chain, and also since I have no family in the USA. Looking forward to some inner peace in a city I adore.
Plus a day trip to London to watch two of my fave musicals - Billy Elliot & Jersey Boys. Billy Elliot premiered on London’s West End in 2005, and Broadway in 2008, whereas Jersey Boys premiered on Broadway in 2005, and The West End 2008. Both Tony Award winners, and nominees for Laurence Olivier Awards (JB won). I saw both on Broadway, NYC, and thought they were great. Looking forward to a different experience in productions.
(Sidebar: I think I’ve spent more time on planes this month than NYC subway. Sidebar #2. I hate planes).
Buona Pasqua a tutti!

Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.

If a Student Says Homosexuality Is a Sin, Is It Bullying?

What right should students have to talk about God in homework, assemblies, club meetings, and graduation speeches? This is the question at stake in a new law in Tennessee and other states across the country. On Thursday, Governor Bill Haslam signed the Religious Viewpoints Anti-Discrimination Act, which affirms that religious students should have the same free-speech rights as secular ones. At first, this might seem uncontroversial; religious expression has always been protected by the First Amendment. So why did two Republican state legislators feel the need to write the bill?

"Christian conservative groups have for many years been frustrated by what they see as a hostile environment for religion in public schools," said Charles Haynes, the Director of the Religious Freedom Education Project at the Newseum. "They are convinced—with some justification—that there’s a lot more that public schools can be doing to protect religious expression."

In Tennessee, legislators pointed to one case in particular as the motivation for creating the bill. In October, a teacher told a Memphis fifth grader that she couldn’t write about God in an essay about “her idol.” In defiance, ten-year-old Erin Shead wrote two essays—both about the Almighty, although only one was about Michael Jackson—and her mom sought legal help. The elementary schooler was later allowed to turn in her God essay (and earned a score of 100%, as local news organizations dutifully reported at the time).

My heart hurts, and will always hurt, for the 32 hokies we lost on this day 7 years ago. But what keeps me going is knowing I have an amazing family, that is truly the greatest thing anyone could ever be a part of. I am proud to be a Virginia Tech Hokie, and I plan on living the rest of my life, proudly, for 32. We are Virginia Tech. We will prevail.

Unsung Hero.

Here’s the “Meaning of Life.” ~9,000,000 people have watched this video in the past 2 weeks and seem to agree. I’m one of them. I was moved by this short film.

The connections you make with your patients stay with you long after they’ve left your care. Sometimes it’s a difficult patient who taught you how to be resilient; Then there’s the confused elderly person who taught you patience; Or maybe the chronic one who couldn’t get longterm placement, so they became part of the unit’s family - and mourned like a loved one when they passed, Or perhaps it was a terminal patient that gave you an understanding in dignity. Every so often, you experience an encounter with a patient, one whom has touched your soul so deeply, you are reminded on the roughest of days that there is grace and simplicity in nursing.
