Thank you for sharing your stories. My nursing career has moved to non clinical realms so it's great to hear about different sides of nursing.

I found the speaker very easy to listen to and this was a fascinating story, told by a man with a great deal of dignity. I only wish more people had his approach to life and what it throws at us.

Why do we have to keep glorifying this criminal? Let's hear from the employer she stole from and how they have had to rebuild their life after Kerry sent them broke. Kerry has been peddling this story for long enough... jog on!
