Letting Go Gently

I thought a lot about death during my years as a resident. And I've thought a lot about death in the years since. It's impossible not to when you work in a hospital, when you watch children suffer, because even though most of them won't die, you know that some of them will.

Thanks so much to the Boston Globe Magazine for publishing this piece in today's edition. And thanks to all who will read and discuss this difficult topic.

  1. I agree that buried within a tragedy we do have the opportunity to succeed. Nicely written.
