American fighting Ebola a Hoosier

Donald Trump aside, most of us are pretty awed by the courage of American health workers who have chosen to be on the front lines of the fight against ebola.

One of them could reasonably be called a Hoosier. Dr. Kent Brantly, who returned from Liberia after contracting the often fatal disease, went to high school in Indianapolis and graduated from the IU medical school. He and fellow missionary Nancy Writebol, who also contracted the disease, were flown to Atlanta to be treated with an experimental serum.

They, and the others who have put their lives at risk to save others from this dreaded scourge, deserve to be in our thoughts and prayers.
