Dr. George Terre

Early one morning, as I neared the end of my overnight shift, and the completion of my OB Anesthesia rotation — 2 weeks straight of 13-14-hour night shifts — I found myself reflecting on the patients I had treated, the care I provided, and most importantly, how it had changed me. I suddenly felt the overwhelming need to write what I was feeling. 

Human anguish is my enemy. 
Here, the patients don’t need a Doctor. 
I, am a soldier. 

I fight not with violence,  
But with Love. 
I take the field not with my body; 
But with my heart, and my mind. 

I can win battles with compassion and resiliency, 
But the war can only be won with more soldiers.
