    We are a product of our past experiences and this trauma story has molded you into the physician you are today. Thanks for sharing.

    Dr David-
    thanks for being there that night in 1975, at my Dad’s [your Uncle’s] funeral, you saved my life that night, since I was ready to kill the step-monster after her shenanigans- your funny hospital; intern stories , were a welcome relief-
    glad you told this John Lennon story- his was a horrific death and it shows the trauma you medicos are subjected to in the ER-which most people don’t take into account-
    glad you’re getting kudos you deserve
    best,
    Jamie H.
    p.s great article, Ms. Smith

    Hi David, has it really been 39 years since that tragic night? Were we ever that young & innocent? That night changed us, all the staff in the ER at Roosevelt even though we had an active knife & gun club that night changed us. Speaking for the nurses, many of whom are still friends, we were glad you were with us that night, we couldn’t save him but you being with us somehow made it a wee bit better. Hope you & your family are well. With love & fond memories, Barbara Kammerer RN
