Nursing School Adventures
Samantha put away the final items from her suitcase. The last item she tucked safely away was her family's pendant. She hid this away in her top drawer. Personal effects were not highly looked upon in the new nursing school that taught the medical advancements Florence Nightingale had brought to the medical community. Samantha thought of her life and how all the privilege and society events she had left were not enough to prepare her for what she was to learn. But she knew her family's love was with her, and the pendant containing the initials of her father, Joshua, mother, Harriet, and brother, Matthew would serve as a reminder through the tough times ahead.
