passing on

If a death is a defeat, then every physician is a failure.  It is as ludicrous as it sounds, but it is standard sentiment in our culture.  Unfortunately, the real failure is in the traumatic, undignified, and immature form death has taken in our hospitals.

We physicians are more than scientists.  We are healers.  We are guides.  We are human—and we can offer our patients more than pills and interventions.
