I was surprised to find this and wish it were longer. It’s a wonderful comparison between Beth/Lizzie’s courage in caring (in a hands-on fashion) for someone with a highly contagious disease and the brave Ebola workers.

Reblogged this on Louisa May Alcott is My Passion and commented:
A prominent medical journal highlights Beth March/Lizzie Alcott and her compassionate care.
I have admired Beth and her courage and lovingkindness so much since I first saw the movie(my favorite movie ever!) way back in 1967 when it was on tv during our Christmas vacation. I got the book , illustrated by Tasha Tudor for Christmas, with has been my favorite Christmas gift all these years. I loved Beth so much that I named my daughter Elizabeth. Beth demonstrated courage and compassion and has always been one of my greatest heroes in life. The world would be a much better place if we had more Beths in it. My favorite Little Women movie has always been the one with Margret O’Brien . Nobody cries with the depth of emotion as June Allyson.
