Modern Medicine

As mentioned before, we do a "moment of gratitude" (which we call "catitude") ever day.

A recurring theme is our gratitude for modern medicine. Doctors saved my life when I was a toddler. They saved it again in 2014 and then in 2017. They do a lot more for me that I won't bother listing here.

A few years ago, I read a biography of George Washington. If I'm remembering correctly, Martha Washington was born into a wealthy family and married a wealthy man as her first husband. She buried him and married another wealthy and powerful man (George). Yet with every possible advantage of the age, she buried all her kids and her grandkids too.

How effing horrible is that?

I know many people in every generation think they live in the worst possible time. But it really is hard to imagine what it would be like to have your spouse(s), kids, and grandkids dying all the time.
