It is important for us to recognise, the exceptional ,selfless act of kindness and humility shown by Mary Seacole to everyone that she cared for and served under.

We have 7 Nightingale hospitals, diversity and representation from BAME communities should not have been a second thought... but at least we now have the chance to re-educate and make amends.

I am signing because not only does make common sense - Mary Seacole was an amazing, brave and gifted person - and more than worthy for this honour and recognition - even more than this she saved lives, she was a healer and she was black - need I mention that black people statistically have been dying more than white people, they are in frontline services in cities especially London and therefore more at risk. It will never repair the damage and pain caused by ignorant racists, lawmakers and penpushers, it may just remind us there are truly heaven-sent heroines and hero’s to inspire us! Godbless

I believe recognition should be given to people if colour who also made outstanding contribution to the society.
