What was the most interesting question?

"I have an older female arthritis patient who was taking care of her elderly mother at home and finally decided to put the mother in a nursing home. Later she came to me and said the pain she was experiencing was God punishing her for putting her mother in the nursing home? It relates to Christianity, which is something I emphasized in my application, and therefore seemed designed especially for me, so I don't think this question would be asked to everyone.
