Preparing to Die

David C

I’m a physician that often bridges very dif­fer­ent worlds. Voca­tion­ally, my foci are in inter­nal med­i­cine and pedi­atrics. Geo­graph­i­cally, I grew up in the sub­urbs but now live in the inner city. Eth­ni­cally, I’m Asian and Amer­i­can. Socially, I’m an intro­vert that enjoys pub­lic speak­ing (mainly as a plat­form for ideals). Polit­i­cally, I lean center-left but with largely fun­da­men­tal­ist Chris­t­ian moral­ity. Aca­d­e­m­i­cally, I’ve stud­ied engi­neer­ing, med­i­cine, and health pol­icy. Faith-wise, I am decid­edly Christian.

    I was raised atheist and I can still say, without much of a doubt, that I don’t believe in God. But, when I read your writing, I believe. Not necessarily in God, as defined by the Bible or the Koran, but I believe in the good, in human beings and in the divinity of life. I just wanted to say thank you for that.

    This is great. Keep writing, brother.

  3. I was thinking of the same verse yesterday… a friend of mine’s wife passed away, after 5 years of fighting cancer. I don’t know why it hit me so hard. Maybe it’s because of what I remember him saying about her: “I wish I could take that cancer upon myself…” Death is itself such an alien thing, and I do believe that as much as we claim not to understand the concept of “infinteness” and “forever,” we are contradictions when we look at the life that is not there anymore and wonder why we’re so startled.
