I think this was an amazingly written post. I stopped to comment on this post because I completely forgot about the aids parties that that woman thew for the patients. I remember when I first saw her all dressed up and my first thought being “aww.” Yes, these people were on borrowed time and were just waiting to die, but she gave them a little joy during a very hard time. I’ve always been aware of the importance of physical touch and feeling of well-being/belonging, however, this movie inspired me to make sure I am doing all I can for my loved ones. Make sure I tell them I love them, give them hugs, celebrate the small achievements. All before its too late. This is something that I also want to carry along with me as I too pursue a healthcare career!
