People fire it up to exchange ideas, discuss hot topics or enjoy small talk. Recently, in the ever-increasing real of tweets, a new trend has emerged. Devoted medics began using the #ShareAStoryInOneTweet hashtag to post touching work moments, and they remind us why we're incredibly blessed to have them.

Doctors, nurses, and other health professionals are flooding the social network, explaining their passion for saving lives, and it's clear that for every patient complaint they can provide countless examples of sacrifice. Scroll down to check out the soul-stirring tweet-stories and upvote your favorites. (Cover image source: Paul Broben)

Why can't I upvote this more? The world needs more people like this brother. This mother. This sister. We need- NEED- now more than ever to know we are one world, one family. We have the technology and money and power to fix these problems, but we focus on the wrong things.

Well said. My grandfather is a doctor-veteran who cries every time he loses a patient. He takes flowers to the graves of some of his patients.

I am very sorry, but I can't continue reading these because I can't stop crying. They are all amazing stories, and it's a bittersweet reminder that we should all live the best life that we can, because we never know when it ends.

Agreed. I'm a hospital registrar in the emergency room. The last thing I do is place an ID bracelet on the patient, lightly grasp their hand, and reassure them. It isn't much. Sometimes, it makes a difference.

I honestly believe abortions should ONLY be allowed if there is a MAJOR health risk. If you abort because you don't want to take responsibility for your actions thats just stupid and selfish. I mean wtf theres so many families out there unable to have kids and you'd rather murder your child than take responsibility for something you did...great on you. you're such a wonderful human being....

It's a great story but the part with the mother really enraged me. I hate people who simply stay by, scream their lungs out and do nothing to try to help.
