Caring: a labor on stolen time

This is an essay by a friend of mine talking about her experiences working and organizing at a Christian nursing home in the Seattle area. It's definitely, definitely worth a read if you have any thought for the way that the structures of our society interact with some of our most vulnerable populations, or what happens when people try to work against those structures or survive within them.

It's a longish piece... and every word of it is worthwhile, well thought-out, and important.
