I had a thought:
If I ever had any faith in “authorities” it’s all gone now…completely…we are all, regardless of socio-economic status, education, gender or race bumbling along together…here is to us all coming to a profound understanding of that fact.

by diplomas or degrees.
He scrutinized the person,
not the certificate.He was once heard to say,
“When you have ears to hear
a bird in song, you don’t need
to look at its credentials.
Anthony De Mello, Authenticity

And it is the bridge between patients and professionals too: Bridging the Patient-Professional Divide
