Thank you for this gift today Dr. Silvestri. I do hope Doctor as Patient is doing well. And I also hope “their smiles are not just taught, but true.” Authentic compassion, morality, doctoring…we hope for this, we teach for this, we have reflectivemeded.org and other such reflection-promoting initatives to help.
Dianne. Your poetry is deeply moving. I remember you as an intern. You have found your voice. Thanks for sharing your gift.
