A couple of days ago, I casually mentioned the Hippocratic Oath, and it occurred to me that while I knew what it says in general terms, I’d never actually read the whole thing (kinda like most politicians and the Constitution, or most Christians and the Bible).
So out of curiosity, I looked it up — and I was floored. Seriously: this is the most inspiring and beautiful text I’ve read it all year. Much love and admiration are due to every doctor — and every nurse — who truly practices according to these principles.
It even mentions God… in a fully appropriate, non-cringe-inducing way.
