Naomi Rosenberg, an ER doctor in North Philadelphia, has an op-ed in the NYT, “How to Tell a Mother Her Child is Dead.” It’s really quite something. You should go read it.
My father used to run a trauma unit in North Philadelphia. There were too many mornings when I’d be watching the news on TV before school, hear about a shooting, and then realize that he wasn’t home. Way, way too many mornings. I have no idea – literally no idea – how he did what he did. It’s beyond me.
