The Oath

“I will prescribe regimens for the good of my Patients according to my  
ability and my judgment of medical laws, and never do harm to anyone.”  
Easier said than done when the bad guys are clearly spotted from the  
good guys – and the bad guys are really bad.  
“A Patient is only a human being… not a part of any religion. We  
treat the body not the mind”, his father repeated after graduation.  
Daniel kept telling himself that The Oath means something, that it  
must for the good of society – otherwise the Profession is bankrupt.  
“The Hippocratic Oath is not something that’s just printed on a  
piece of paper”, he also barked during those early days.  
Bennies might help you stay up around the clock; but they can  
become a habit that won’t know how to stop.  
After treating those third-world Dictators Daniel knew it all.  
Before entering these countries of little integrity all kinds of deals

I am Medecins Sans Frontieres Doctor Daniel Belrose… a-Political  
Man of Medicine.  
Daniel knows he has no right to judge – none; that beach in Haiti was  
always full of empty plastic bags.  
Never has he forgotten that first look, that first touch, that first kiss  
from Ava.  
Daniel will go anywhere in the world to treat anybody because that’s  
his inheritance.  
Even though she just vanished from his life without saying good-bye.
