If you were in my shoes…

This morning, story of Jun Beom-suk, M.D., a famous neurologist, caught my attention. Dr. Jun was casually hiking up the mountain when he fell and lost his consciousness. Next morning, what he found was the man who only could move his left toe from paralysis because he broke his neck. He was a medical expert and knew what stats talk about his chance of being recovered. Within just three days after long operation, he stepped up to take all the initiatives to recoup his remaining sense and capability of moving his body. After 9 months of long and blood-pumping efforts to rehab, he is now back in his office, leading up top neurologists at Seoul Nat’l Univ. What he learned from this experience was how vaguely he knew about his patients’ pain and how important to keep hope to get recovered even if there is only 5% of chance.

Sometimes, being in others’ shoes is the best way to learn. How often do we come across those people who speak up even if they have never been to and never gotten proper experience before.
