Kaci Hickox, the nurse that was quarantined after her return from serving in a region in Africa that was greatly affected by the Ebola virus, has filed a lawsuit against the Governor for his use of the measure. In my opinion, being a little inconvenienced for a few hours, does not merit a law suit. At the time we were all being cautious about preventing the virus from spreading to this region. Relatively, as an a healthcare professional she should have embraced any effort that might help prevent the spread of the disease. I would like to know what happened to that chivalrous spirit, which led her to put her life on the line to help care for the Ebola patients in the region in the first place. Indeed, she needs to draw upon that same spirit of chivalry instead of being so mean-spirited.
Besides, she should realize that she is suing the state, not the Governor, and is actually asking taxpayers like herself to foot the bill. If Ms. Hickox wants wealth she should simply work for it. It is not like she suffered any physical harm, and any mental harm is likely a bruised ego. I hope she comes to her senses and withdraw this petty lawsuit for whatever claims she hatched up; for cynics like myself will only asses it as being inspired by greed.
