It was fascinating to see what type of calls the medics received.

The writing was a tad rough around the edges, but it's what I

“It was about the attitude. To your patients it was their only comfort in their time of need. The appearance of being taken care of by someone with such capable hands and skills had a calming effect. In the end, all they needed, no matter what was wrong with them, was a confident laying on of hands. Reassurance that there was indeed such a thing as hope. The way you walked and the way you talked meant almost everything. The aura of professionalism would ooze from your pores. The vast knowledge accumulated and then applied was the envy of those who would stand around you, not as certain as you seemed. Those who did not know you would label it as arrogance. It was only your partner who held the truth. That it was confidence in asserting that you are the best at what you do. The best at caring for the sick and injured against the specter of death.” 0 likes
