The Beauty of Compassion
As I flipped television channels last night, I came upon a Nova program that chronicled the journey of two Bangladeshi conjoined twins. They underwent a grueling, 34-hour separation surgery in Australia. They are now doing great. One of the twins has some developmental difficulties, but they are both so lucky to be alive.
The story was dramatic and heart-warming. Many, many people came together to create this miracle, including case workers, adoptive parents, doctors, nurses, surgeons, even the Australian government. It was a beautiful story, but one thing troubled me.
