An Italian Doctor Shares Our New World

On the front lines of the crisis in Italy, Dr. Amedeo Capetti has noticed “the nearly complete disappearance of complaints” among his patients. “Rather than complain, my patients send me messages every day to ask me how I am doing, wanting to participate in the incredible and exceptional experience I am living.”

In fact, what I am living – but I believe this to be an experience shared by many others – is a phenomenon that we physicians often see in those who have survived a brush with death: the experience of opening your eyes and realizing that nothing can any longer be taken for granted. It is the recognition that everything is a gift: waking up in the morning, greeting your loved ones, and even all the little moments of daily life, that for some are merely time to be filled, but for others, like me, have unexpectedly become even more compelling than before
