|GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:|
|Ask most surgeons why they became surgeons and they usually tell you the same thing. It was from the high. The rush. The thrill that comes from cutting someone open and saving their live. For me it was different. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a house with 4 sisters. No, definitely because I grew up in a house with 4 sisters because it was the quiet that drew me to surgery. The operating room is a quiet place, peaceful. It has to be in order for us to stay alert, anticipate complications. When you stand in the OR your patient open on the table, all the world’s noise, all the worries that it brings disappears. A calm settles over you, time passing without thought, you feel completely at peace. |
|GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:|
|Peace isn’t a permanent state. It exists in moments, fleeting. Gone before we even knew it was there. We can experience it at any time.. In a s stranger’s act of kindness. A task that requires complete focus. Or simply the comfort of an old routine. Every day we all experience these moments of peace. The trick is to know when their happening so that we can embrace them. Live in them. And finely let them go.|
