“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don 't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart.
This quote was so powerful. Father Greg looks up to Jesus especially in times like these. He makes the connection that when Jesus says to love your enemies, it doesn’t mean you have to cease loving those who love us. Just because it is harder, doesn’t mean it is better, it is just harder. When we are able to love our enemies we will start to truly live in a world who God is.

Emily Gustafson ENGL 208 Prof. Budd 11/10/15 Book Review: The Empathy Exams Leslie Jamison’s first nonfiction book, The Empathy Exams (Graywolf Press, 2014), is a smart and emotionally -wrenching collection of essays on the theme of empathy and human suffering. Jamison’s own self-awareness and presence in each of the essays provides the common thread the collection needs to keep it from becoming overwhelming or directionless. “Part of me has always craved a pain so visible,” she writes in the first essay, “that everyone would have to know.” Jamison’s frustrations with and struggle to find the balance between doing the right thing by empathizing and her own self-pity or questions about her obligations to others made this collection ring true..
Week two has been a little more challenging versus week one. I was tempted with sweet tea several times which has made it more difficult. I truly expected it to be easier because I thought after the first week my body would start to adapt without the caffeine from sweet tea. This is not how I expected the assignment to go.

Your research question is one most nurses have questioned at some point in their career. I have felt the feeling of annoyance and dread when starting my shift and realizing that my elderly patient has an IV that was placed 4 days ago, and per policy it must be changed today. Sticking the patient again for a new IV seems cruel when the old is still functioning correctly. Many times, I have questioned if the benefits really outweigh the risks of starting a new IV simply because the old is expired.
Loyalty, it’s the second level to love. You’re proving your love for someone by standing up for them no matter what.
