As a friend of mine often reminds people, ‘We are not here to stay; we are here to go.’
I am writing these words in a consultant’s waiting room in a London hospital. Some of the other patients are showing signs of great physical distress, moving reminders that the whole world is a hospital in which everyone is a terminal patient. The South African surgeon Christiaan Barnard performed the world’s first human heart transplant operation in 1967 and the first double–heart transplant in 1974. Later in life he said, ‘At 79, people ask me, “Where do you go from here?” I say to them, “I’m on the waiting list. I don’t exactly know where I am on that, or where I’m going. But I’m on it”.’ So are you! Even as you read these words you are fighting a losing battle with death, whatever your age or present state of health. What will happen to you when death wins?
An ideal booklet for buying in bulk to give away for outreach purposes.
