Something to believe in

So what’s this post about?

Well, a few night shifts ago we had a patient in a really bad condition. So we demanded an emergency doctor. Nothing bad so far, a few days ago I heard that this particular patient died inside the hospital.
Also “nothing special”, we know we can’t help everyone and there are diseases which are incurable.

So, life goes on…

…is probably one of the most overused sentences in a context like this. Things should get lighter, at least that’s what’s people say. I can partially confirm that.

So where are we as human beings?

Always doing the best and giving the most. Always with the feeling that more could be done. Are we condemned to regularly fall into sadness and pain?

If I don’t believe in Jesus, how can I believe the Pope.
If I don’t believe in heroin, how can I believe in dope.
If there’s nothing but survival, how can I believe in sin.
In a world that gives you nothing.
We need something to believe in.

“We need something to believe in” — sure, but sometimes it’s hard to find something. Currently, I’m sure I’m believing in something but it’s hard to describe and probably a subject for another post.
