a prayer before rounds …

… in a room … where people are under a lot of stress, you have to pray a prayer of forgiveness for them and perhaps for yourself before going in. You have to forgive them right out because you don’t always find them at their best. A lot of things that have been kept silent for years can’t be kept silent any more, and there are harsh words and merciless accusations. You forgive, stay, and go on together. Life Promises Life Vincent Nagle (Human Adventure Books)
