I"ve Heard Enough

When people cheer and shout "Yeah!" when a hypothetical question is asked of a so-called political leader about letting a young, healthy man without insurance, who has had a serious accident die, then I think I have heard enough.

I am not a perfect human being; I have flaws of character I strive everyday to overcome.  But when it comes to men and women cheering for the idea of allowing a human being to die because he or she has no money to afford their medical treatment, I think I have heard quite enough.

With every fiber in my being, I will resist that cruel calculus that holds another person's life so cheaply.
