    What were you doing up at 0dark30 today, Rick? Did you start a caffeine drip for yourself?

    Hey, Rick, at 06:30 this AM it probably did feel awful to be up, I'm sure. But at that time of day you didn't know what would happen today at 9AM, did you? Maybe looking back now it does look dumb, but it was an appropriate thing to say at THAT time--- and I would have joined you in saying it if I would have been up then, too.
    Life goes on and we can't fix things that we have no control over. We can only fix the things that are under our control- what time we get up and how we react to them, for instance. There are things beyond our control (such as the attacks today), but we do have some control over how we respond to them (praying for the victims, families, and workers; donating time and volunteering to help however we can; giving blood, etc.). Our response to this tragic day can help each of us cope with this.

    Peace, friend.

    Hey Rick! I get up at 0500 on the days I work and it sucks big time. It will continue to suck, even with everything else going on now. Don't beat yourself up! Nurses are way too hard on themselves!

    I work nights. I always thought getting up early should be for only 2 things. The second being to go hunting Gary

    i for one would rather get up early and get finished early. we work 6 to 6:30 but i would love if they changed it to 4 or 5. hate being at work late in the evening. actually i don't think i would mind 6 six hour shifts--say 6 to 12. off at noon everyday would be great. i know that you would have to get up nearly every day early but hey--then you are already up and on the go. i get more stuff done during the day if i have to get up and ready early.
