A Picture of a Hero
I have had a couple of conversations with health care providers recently. It really made me think about what people who have the calling or gift of healing mean to us. I remembered meeting a USMC surgeon who worked in our Area of Operations - not just on US or Coalition personnel, but on plenty of Afghans as well. This man could have stayed safe and comfortable in the US, earning a nice living too. Instead, here he was in his country's uniform, in a war torn country, helping the afflicted and the injured. The Parwan Provincial Ministry of Health officials were deeply grateful to him, and thought him a hero. So do I.
