Comments01/08/2016 #12 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#9 #1 #3 #4 #7 Do let us leave 'religion' aside for a moment, and ponder the quandery of this scenario: I had just thrown my graduation cap up in the air, USC alumni now, no excitement to spare! And POOF! My first patient was in the Jail Ward and the hard, 'real' world upset all my heart. My first patient held his girlfriend hostage at the butt of a gun, placed to her head for hours after dreaded hours. Finally, the LAPD gunned him down. At 19 years old, I walked in on this human that I was bound, by the Hippocratic Oath, to 'heal.' He was now a quadraplegic, no movement but could feel every needle stick every morning I had to draw from his atrophied right arm. He shed real tears, begging me, "No! Not again! Please, no, I beg" whenever my white coat walked in filled instead with blood. He expressed great sorrow, for now his todays were the same as all his tomorrows. My struggle inside went from rage, < outrage, < outrageous in the extreme for what he had done, and I never lost sight of the girlfriend he had once won. "I am forced to take care of him." That was my first thought.....until day 30 of the rotation, when I was sorry that I had to leave him. To someone else who may not care. I still think of him every day. / ...and now I'll bring my religion in to say, that also, I pray.25/07/2016 #9 Charles David Upchurch#1 @Jeet Sarkar you wrote that "[what] hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals. Truly, criminals have no religion. Humanity is a term which those criminals hate, i think so. They are inhuman."
While I understand the pain of other victims of crime (having repeatedly suffered both property and violent crimes), I believe that you, and @debasish majumder and at least a billion other human beings have all lost your way in dehumanizing abnormal, aberrant, and anti-social behavior.
We are ALL people, human beings. NONE of us is always without fault. Part of our growth from the innocence of babies is that we make mistakes while learning how we should and should not treat one another in our families, our communities, and the greater world. Some learn from fewer mistakes how and why to be kind to one another. Others, because their most basic needs have not been met, or because they missed some important lessons along the way about the value of EVERY person (including themselves) make more mistakes which harm others. A VERY small percentage (perhaps 1/10 of one percent) are genuinely social psychopaths, meaning that they lack the emotional intelligence to recognize the humanity of others (no matter how many mistakes they could otherwise have learned from) and to simply CARE about others more than just themselves. Yet no matter how inhumanely a person thinks and feels, even the most abhorrent actions must honestly be acknowledged as a [small and very dark] part of what it means to be a human being. As @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD was suggesting, below, the answer relies on us accepting everyone's humanity while also rejecting inhumane behaviors.25/07/2016 #8 Charles David Upchurch#7 @Ray Looker, I am not an expert, but that doesn't sound right. It also doesn't sound to me like respectful and civil discourse. If you are to make such a vociferous assertion, I would kindly ask you to state your historical (not simply religious) references for that claim. Thank you, sir.24/07/2016 #6 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#3 #4 We should not be looking to outside people or forces to change the tide. We need to look within ourselves, and live true to our God even at the mercy of a terrorist. We love minute-by-minute, 100% pure.

Serio CPC, CeMAAnother thought-provoking post, @debasish majumder which dives deep into todays unfortunate - and often unspeakable - issues. With so many questions to ponder, answers to consider, I wonder if they will be answered in my lifetime. I ask the same question as @Anees Zaidi - will the Millennials take up the gauntlet and make the changes necessary in the world?06/07/2016 #2 INDU RANI SINGHHi devashish sir,I enjoyed ur post.I really appriciate ur examine to responsibility our society.so nice for it but I want say something about ur post image...teachers always learnt how to grow myself?
without love any nouns &adjective r not safe.....but actually they
alive.& daily face to living movement.this is realty so we couldn't give them same answer .06/07/2016 #1 Jeet SarkarWith the development of the society, i think we are actually moving backward instead of moving forward. Racism and discrimination based on religion has nowadays become very common, which is very unfair. But which hurts the most is that brutal activity of the criminals. Truly, criminals have no religion. Humanity is a term which those criminals hate, i think so. They are inhuman. However, thank you for the post sir. enjoyed reading.
