Here I Stand

The following piece is a piece that I am proud to not only post, but I am honored to do so. The only condition to posting this is that I would not publish the name behind the words. I can tell you this however. These words are spoken from the heart of a beautiful person facing his own battle for life. A truly gifted neurosurgeon, husband, father and friend who has touched the lives of so many and in his courageous journey to those who know and love him dearly- we find that he is touching our lives... To you we say "Thank you."

"This, then, is life. I am blessed by a rich, deep, and full life; I prize being surrounded and sustained by my beloved family, my special friends, my esteemed colleagues, and my entrusted patients. I am now starting a new adventure filled both with terror and with hope. It is overwhelmingly clear how grand the provenance is that governs the web of our lives. I am sufficiently grounded to respond, "'Tis a gift to be simple, 'tis a gift to be free", and to rejoice daily in the enoblement of true good work, in the transcendance to be found in other people, in the meaning and beauty of this world, and in the given mystery that is my life. I stand justified and assured of the promise of the future to come."
