Attempting to speak about suffering might indicate a presumptuousness in one’s attitude about those who have suffered. Anything said objectively stands in vague contrast to the stark reality of the suffering that has gone on among all people. To discuss the suffering of patients, their family constellations, and those of us who render care to them, and to discuss the effect of that suffering on society in general appears to be a sophomoric exercise and philosophical dilettantism. However, I could see the value in continuing such deliberations if this induced a greater sense of humanity in each of us and in society. Perhaps we should seek forgiveness for the neglect we have demonstrated in the past and continue to demonstrate when we fail to support and feel for the suffering humanity that continues to cry out for our help.
