What an uplifting and inspiring article! I also lived in Arlington during 9/11 and I remember being touched by Liz's story. Thanks for your example of compassion and love.

Thank you

Beautiful, beautiful article. It inspires me to serve.

Losing oneself

is the most charitable way to serve others. I admire nurse, Liz Howell. Serving others helps her fill the gap of her loss, What a brave soul to go on a mission at age thirty, besides. May you continue to find the joy and peace that your life will bring. Thank you for being such an example of love and sacrifice. Your story is an illustration and example of what we can do to serve our felling beings. I did not know the origin of the words to the hymn mentioned, "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief." A favorite one of minetoo. --"I Stand All Amazed."

Wonderful story! What a difference one can make! Thanks for your service Liz!

her cheek on his head.

What a sweet tender story. The picture of her carrying this boy with her cheek on his head looks like she is trying to draw on the powers of heaven for what both of them are feeling. Blessings to them.

I wish the LDS Humanitarian Aid group could think about adding others to their ranks...maybe not nurses but people, women especially who have stories similar to Liz, who could contribute so much healing and love to the poor and afflicted of the world, because they have been afflicted themselves, maybe in ways like Liz and also very different ways.

I wish I had the words to say how touched I was by your story, may you have continued strength and healing.

I met Liz when she was interviewed for a video a few months after 9/11. She was very centered and has an amazing perspective.

Great story

Thank you very much for this touching story. This is the kind of news we need! INSPIRE US!

Liz and people like her make this world a much better place. She is a shining example of how being committed to the welfare of others not only helps them but her as well.

How wise !!! she certainly chose the best part. I am sure her husband is watching over her and feeling pleased for her every minute. Thanks for this article. It was certainly very inspiring.

Simply inspiring.

A special spot in Heaven

has been reserved for Liz and her husband.

Brava!

Wonderful story - about the great sacrifice Liz is making to make the world a better place, one person at a time. Truly terrific. There are many people smiling because of her.

Thanks and Praise

...be to God, for his tender mercies...so often in the world we forget, that the greatest gift of all might be the opportunity and means to give...God bless Liz who seems to have priorities in perfect order...and to DN for the story.

I admire Liz and her counterparts effort BUT who really cares if she is LDS or not. This kind of reporting is just a tad over the top. What does anybodies religion have to do with this? Nothing except to this news paper. Can you stop already and just focus on the people and thier stories and leave religion out of it. Please? Thank you and may God bless everyone!

Thank you to Scott Taylor for writing such an inspiring, well written article, and to the photographer for such tender photos that convey a thousand unwritten words. A special thanks to Liz for sharing your touching, unselfish story, and for being such a wonderful example to me and others. Watching the acts of compassion rendered to the people of Haiti has renewed my faith in mankind! I echo "her cheek on his head", who voiced her willingness to help out despite not being a nurse. I would love to help comfort children, clean up from the devastation, etc., but I don't know who to contact to offer my services.

Continued thanks Scott Taylor

One after another, your stories have had me riveted to hear your continuing reports.

Your spirit and compassion is leaking through in your stories. Thanks.

This is so wonderful... - Liz, you will probably not even read this. But I grew up next down to your husband Brady. We loved the Howell Family and i have a deep respect for them (They helped my family after my father passed away)- and you. My heart has a tender spot and am so blessed by your example and what you are doing. May you find peace as you help these dear people in Haiti- they are so lucky to have you there to help in their time of need. I hope that we can learn from your example and Give - Truly give of all we have to help others. Best wishes....Tammie Bahr Holmes
