Haiti Update: Life Goes On
January 24, 2010
Apparently, not everyone got hurt in the earthquake. I wouldn't have known it from what I saw. A young kid was playing with his ball amidst the rubble and I realized that life moves on, no matter the magnitude of the problem. I'm worried that we will move on and forget the external fixtures that protrude from so many legs, or a nation full of amputees and without infrastructure. Greg Feldman told me he wanted to wrap up his residency in time to contribute to the continued surgical effort later this year. That’s a sign of true valor and concern and commitment.
