With the crisis of Hurricane Harvey and the rains still battering Houston...
It was so amazing to read this morning about the doctors who are going all out to help people in need there.
Doctors staying in the hospital for days to cover their patients stuck there and requiring care and treatment.
And others that are wading through the waters at there own risk to get there to treat the sick.
One doctor mentioned was Adi Diab M.D. who trekked 3 miles through a foot of water to get Anderson Cancer Center "to attend to a patient undergoing an experimental cancer treatment."
He did this so as not to interfere with the patients scheduled treatment for the re-engineering of immune cells to fight a tumor.
I'll tell you, there really are some truly amazing people out there--whether doctors and nurses, firefighters and emergency responders, law enforcement and military personnel.
They run into danger and disaster zones when everyone else is running out.
Is it professionalism, dedication, duty, or an angelic calling to help people and the nation in need.
This is our nation at its best--united!!!--and helping our neighbors, saving lives, and putting others before self.
"Houston there is a problem", and as unbelievably horrible and unfortunate as it is, perhaps it is also a critical reminder of what's really important and a healing to our great nation. ;-)
