Title of Work

Thank you, I'm sorry

Description of Work

We go into medicine to help others, cure disease, end suffering. We want to be caretakers, but to do so, there has to be disease. Does that make us thankful for the processes that cause this pain and suffering because it gives us purpose, it allows us to fulfill our role as caretakers? Who would we be without it? How can we help, be of use, if nothing is wrong, if no one needs us?

Are we subconsciously endorsing disease? Are we thankful for it? We say we’re thankful when we end it, cure it, thwart it. But, to be happy to beat it, are we, on some level, happy of its presence to begin with?
