Caring for Others and Ourselves
The COVID-19 pandemic has left no one among us untouched. For many, the past year and a half has been informed by hardship, fear, loss, and grief. This crisis period has also been accompanied by long overdue discourses and responses to social inequalities, health inequities, and structural injustices. As we pause around the struggles confronted, as well as the lessons learned, let us also remember with deep appreciation our dear colleagues who have died in the line of service throughout the pandemic. While reading this very special series of articles, we honor their courage, their commitment, and their healing legacy to nursing at a time when the world needed them most.
