As I often say, my generation of physicians came to medicine to help the 🌎 learn to ❤️ better, because we trained during the most significant ethical crisis the profession has ever faced.
The additional thing I often say is that the future has to start somewhere, and it’s usually here (Washington, DC).
While attending the rally I was struck by:
- The juxtaposition of the images of the rally itself, and this exhibit just a few feet away (see below), in the AFL-CIO building, just steps from the White House in Washington, DC.
- The scene itself, which I have a feeling would remind someone alive in the era of ACT-UP what history feels like – this quote is applicable: “History isn’t something you look back at and say it was inevitable” : Life and Times of Marsha P Johnson.
I meet so many health professionals and health-professionals-to-be who remind that the future keeps arriving. For that reason, it’s #ThisCenturyBestCentury.
