Thank you to the Author of this book (Ms.ME O'Brian); I also fully agree with what expressed by Ms. J Travelbee about the importance of professional nurse be sensitive too in regards with the spiritual needs of the ills. Thank you for the author's great thoughts in this vey crucial and valuable understanding of life meaning - yet - often being neglected by many while they are not in suffering stage ...or think far from approaching death.
