Thomas Slatin Quote On Risk Taking

I have saved lives.  I have held the hands of those who were dying, and helped give birth to those who were moments away from taking their first breaths.  But I have scars.  I have seen all the realities of life, and got way too caught up in what it has to offer.  My scars, forever endearing are both physical as well as emotional.  Every time I look back on my life, I often wonder if the cost was ever truly worth the risk, and through my successes, was it ever worth the reward?  It truly was, and I’d do it all again if I could.
