A Prayer for the Women of the World
I quietly stand in awe as I realize the
presence of God in everything.
The longer that I am in medical
practice the more I see the miracle
of the human body.
It is both a work of art and perfection
in form and function. With the right
input of nutrients and care, the body
is programmed to self-sustain and heal.
I have observed that patients who heal
in a remarkable way have an inner
strength of the human spirit
and passion for life.
That pursuit of purpose reveals
to all of us what is most beautiful
in each of us,
the will to endure,
the capacity to fight the darkness
that would surround us,
the strength of spirit to pursue the light.
That is what I wish for each of you.
