The number of health professional stricken by the virus is way too high. Yet, many professionals have stated that although they recognize the potential danger to their health, they will keep on doing what they are trained to do. Dedication and selflessness. Need a mediator because you can’t agree on work issues, divorce issues, family issues, etc? Think of the health professionals who are willing to risk life itself for their values and sense of duty. It puts a lot of what worries us in perspective.

Our nation will never be able to properly repay the professionals who are truly angelic in their dedication. Life is short. Be willing to make overtures for peace even in the midst of a dispute. If you need an inspiration, look no further than the health professionals who are risking it all or us. That is a perspective to envy.
