Compassion or Nothing

By Dr. Steven Eisenberg

Compassion or Nothing

Compassion.

The other "C" word.

Today is National Doctor's Day.

My two cents:

Compassion or nothing.

 

Compassion.

It's the most important part of being a doctor.

Of any healthcare provider.

Compassion or nothing.

Full on empathy.

The word “doctor” is the agentive noun of the Latin verb docere (do-ke-re) which means “to teach”.

What if we could teach the world a little compassion?

That'd be a fine National Doctor's Day in my book.

I think the word also means D-O-C-T-O-R: 

 

Displaying.

Outstanding.

Compassion.

Transforms.

Our.

Relationships.

 

Compassion or nothing.
