Letter to The Lakeville Journal Editor:

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified our collective gratitude for the sacrifices made by healthcare workers across our nation. During National Nurses Week, May 6-12, Noble Horizons salutes the courageous, dedicated nurses who every day put their lives at risk to care for others.  Whether offering encouraging words of support or highly skilled care, nurses expedite our healing with equal doses of expertise and kindness.  Their deep, unequivocal commitment and empathy have earned the trust of Americans who have voted nurses the most honest, ethical professionals in the country for 18 consecutive years.  The intensifying complexities of providing health care during the COVID-19 pandemic have only magnified our profound appreciation and respect for their selfless work.

On the occasion of National Nurses Week, Noble Horizons honors and thanks the nurses across our community who, with wide-open hearts, devote their lives to providing comfort, compassion and care 24-hours a day, 365-days a year.

Adam Zies-Way wanted to serve in the military since he was a child. Growing up, he was inspired by the stories about both his grandfathers’ service in World War II--one at Pearl Harbor and the other during the Berlin Airlift.

Michelle Hansen grew up in the Falls Village Fire Department. Her father served as chief and her mother was active in the Ladies Auxiliary. Like smoke from a fire, the experience permeated her. As an adult also joined the Auxiliary but in time wanted to serve in another way.
