Gift of Life

A Compilation of Inspirational Stories and Anecdotes

21. The Most Important Question (Every person is as valuable as you are.)

A life-time experience as shared by a student.

During my second month of nursing school, our professor gave us a quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed through the questions, until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"

Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times. She was tall, dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name? I handed my answer paper, leaving the last question blank.

Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our quiz grade. "Absolutely," said the professor. " In your careers you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say ‘hello".

"I’ve never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy."
