EMERGENCY! Inside a Trauma Center

Preview/Purchase my first little book

         Moments at an American inner-city trauma center... Between The Trauma Alerts

My Book, Hands Upon the Dying
available at: www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/531305
It is my intent to show a somewhat tangential view of the Emergency Department - one which captures candid moments, without suggesting glamour or passing judgment.

The sea of humanity that floods most urban EDs across the country, contuses the soul of our collective consciousness... how do we allow the degree of hopelessness among millions of humans fester unchecked, amidst the beautiful rolling fields of American wealth, power and global influence?

The pure spirit of our people must harmonize and evolve... the direction of willful change guided by the anticipated effect our actions leave on our children, five generations from now. Regardless of the religious specifics we cherish with gentle hands, when our lasting creations, anoint the souls of distant infants with peace, love and comfort from suffering, we are eternal... our toil insuring the cycle propagates endlessly. I can think of few greater purposes.

Of course, for patient privacy, any potential identifier has been removed, including all dates. Feedback is most welcome and appreciated. Also, please vote if you like what you see. Should anyone like a photo removed (or otherwise want to send me a private message), kindly email me
