We Salute You

To the nurse who was at the patient bedside at the end of life, we salute you

To the registrar who stopped along the corridor to listen to our patient presentation, we salute you,

To the Medical officer who donated his own blood to save his patient’s life, we salute you

To the professor who was patient with us and taught us medicine, we salute you

To the lab technician who redid a laboratory test to save the patient’s life, we salute you

To the medical student who listened to his patient a little longer and changed the course of treatment of the patient, we salute you

To the medical student who went to the casualty and helped save lives, we salute you

To the cleaner who ensured our wards are clean, we salute you

To the patient who allowed us to touch her body and told us their story, we salute you

To our parents and families who sacrifice to see us become doctors, we salute you

And to our Creator Almighty God who gave us an opportunity to serve other men, WE ADORE YOU

I am a dreamer. I love medicine. She is generous. I am also in love with literature, she makes me see the world the way I want to and sometimes the way it is.
