"...I pray too..."
Yvette Saliba, Center for Academic Achievement Director
TranscriptAbout 6 months before my mom passed away we went to a prayer dinner for women. It was a wonderful event and towards the end of the evening several women got up and shared personal stories of hwo they were healed. When that was over my mom leaned over to me and asked, "Can we go?" I said, "Sure," and we slipped out the back. We got in the car and we were both silent for awhile. And then I heard her say quietly, "You know, I pray too." And it was very emotional because I did know. We were all praying, and she wasn't getting better. She wasn't complaining or saying it in anger. It was just the truth. All I could say was, "I know Mum." So when I think about my Philosophy of Healthcare, it is to hold hands with someone when there is nothing more that can be done.
