In Memoriam

This week has so far been a brutal one. We have already lost four patients. Becky, Peggy, John Wayne and Goldie. Another one is in the launching pad. The practice of medicine is such a profound privilege. Your patients place their lives within your hands. Each good bye teaches you lessons that no other profession will come close to providing.

Patients come and die and only valuable instructions on why we need to lead meaningful lives remain.

At the end of each day, I am so grateful at the opportunity to live in a free and clean and prosperous society. I will always be grateful for these blessings. But we need to move on and become a part of a movement that will hopefully make life better for many others.
