The conclusion, at first glance, almost sounds cruel, but it is the right one. Dealing with other people's pain requires distance - the distance it takes to fit God in the gap between you and the one you are trying to help. Well said.
I guess I read between the lines a bit...but felt this doctor ended up with a healthy perspective. Not uncaring at all, just submitted to a Higher Authority. I would not want to be in his shoes.

Well done - full of emotion on several levels. Difficult but also hopeful.
