Today on the day we celebrate Juneteeth or Emancipation of Slavery and in a political setting where there seems to be such a lack of empathy and an increased interest in designating certain people “different” or “less then” I wanted to post a video that was shared at my last Medical Group meeting. It is a reminder for all of us to see the humanity in every person. Though this video occurs in a medical setting the sentiment is universal and such a good reminder. Thanks for indulging me.

You have one of the most beautiful souls I have ever encountered. Thank you for always showing us how to be better, and why that is so very, very important.
Thank you so much for posting this beautiful film. I won’t soon forget it. xo
The current US president needs to see this.
Thanks for sharing this! It’s very powerful.
Well dammit, someone’s chopping onions near me. Thanks, as always, for sharing with us.
My group used this video, too. It’s a good one.
Thought provoking. Does age promote empathy, as people live through more and gain a better understanding of what another might be experiencing?
Very powerful. I’m sitting a chair in my son’s hospital room, waiting for his Drs to round today. He’s had two abdominal surgeries in the last month for a perforated bowel. It may have happened a third time and we will make some decisions today. He’s finally asleep so now I hope they don’t come right away. I’d like to lay down too but there isn’t enough room. I remain hopeful and positive. Watching this video was meaningful and I hope it can help me with some patience while I continue to wait
