CAPA, APA & Torture, gratitude, Charleston, Oliver Sacks from Sasha Rolde

Dear Colleagues,

I have been scanning the press and the media for newsworthy items, but it seems that the mass shootings, the disappearing airplanes and the police brutality stories are so ubiquitous that they are beginning to feel like the new ***normal***. My vote on that is that we cannot let that happen.

Click Here to Read: Oliver Sacks, who has taught us so much, now teaches us the art of dying by Ranjana Srivastava on the Guardian website on July 25, 2015.

Death is never easy. But Oliver Sacks shows us an approach that views life as a welcome gift rather than bemoaning death as a medical failure.  ‘Every doctor aspires to be a little like Sacks whether for his sharp intellect, his obvious humanity or his exquisite writings that go to the core of what it means to be human and frail.’ Photograph: Adam Scourfield/BBC/AP Photo/AP
