The #ICU campaign was a huge success. It evoked emotions in many different people and the messages that went out were powerful. Somebody said that the trend reads like a silent prayer because the people that the messages are being sent to may never see them.

This is my thank you to each and every person that took part. Here is just a small section of some of the messages that blew up social media. At last count, #ICU has had more than 1,858 Tweets!!!


Here is the #ICU silent prayer
