With all the hype our culture endures over celebrities who are without character, without moral import, and without achievements that benefit anyone but themselves, shouldn't we do more to elevate such genuine heroes as Florence Nightingale? Of course.
So, on this, her birth date, be sure you pass the word on about this life "very well lived." For instance, have your kids (or your spouse!) take 10 minutes away from Entertainment Tonight or their PlayStation and have them click on the title of this post instead. There they will be enlightened and quite likely inspired (at least a little bit) about this wonderful Christian servant.
Happy Birthday, Flo!
