    “Now, I work for L’Oreal and maybe some of you may know they have the famous phrase, ‘Because you’re worth it’.

    “Well, today of all days, we can say with our hands on our hearts, truthfully, and sincerely, to the nurses, you are worth it,” she sweetly said.

    “Thank you so much for everything you’ve done and for everything you will be doing in the future.”
