Dr. Javeed Akhter wrote, "We are a country with a broken and bruised soul. When and how it will heal itself is an open question." (7/5, "Oakbrook physician who came from India laments being ignorant of nation's racist past.")

Doctor, thank you for teaching us what it means for a physician to "heal thyself." By your example, you help others to heal.
