“Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why, Why can’t we live together? Everybody wants to live together. Why can’t we live together?"

In Cinita’s case, she bestowed that honor to her sister, Benita.
Nurses are one of those professions that, no matter how many there seem to be, there aren’t ever enough. In developed nations, this can be an inconvenience for patients and put a strain on the existing staff. In countries with limited resources, it can be deadly.
Teaching is a profession of passion. Classroom teachers are so often attracted to their profession by the driving need to want to make a difference in the world through enhancing the lives of their students. Truthfully, most everyone has a favorite teacher, someone who made learning interesting, fun, and enjoyable.
For the first time in two years, graduates from Touro University California will be able to accept their degrees in person in front of their friends and families. Graduates from all three colleges and six of the seven major academic programs will gather over a two-day span to celebrate their achievements.
