TARRANT COUNTY PHYSICIAN (35)
Search your feelings, you know it to be
true. I hope your year is starting out as
well as mine. I pray that all of us can find
perspective and optimism somewhere in
this world, so that despite the ill effects
of COVID-19 on all of our lives, and the
obstacles and the hazards along our
journey that was 2020, we can continue
to serve our patients in this, the highest
of all callings. I want to thank all of my
colleagues and compatriots who have
shared this year with me and my family. We
have shown that together we are stronger,
and we will overcome. My name is Hujefa
Vora, and this is the Last Word.

would make it through this war. The tears
burned with the memory of all those
we have lost. It didn’t need to get this
bad. Why did we have to lose so many?
And how many more will we lose? The
answer depends now on our resolve. We
must resolve to vaccinate as many of our
patients as we can as soon as possible.
As a medical community, we should
assist our public health departments,
hospitals, clinics, and our federal, state,
and local governments to roll out these
vaccines with great efficiency. The only
way we will win this war now is by
vaccinating the masses and following
the public health guidelines to wash our
hands, distance, and wear masks.
I returned to work in this New Year,
2021, reinvigorated. My optimism stems
from the smiles of my colleagues, which
have been renewed with hope that the
tide is turning. My optimism stems from
an understanding that our imaginations
power our spirit and our spirit powers our
hearts, and that science and ingenuity
and heart will prevail with the advent of
this vaccine. This year, 2021, will be an
amazing year for all of us because I will
will it to be so. The world is full of magic.
We are so blessed to be physicians.
