Watching Lawrence's conversation w/ Dr Anthony Fauci...

I'm in tears...

Twice in my life I had the good fortune to work on teams w/ Dr Fauci. The first was during the HIV/AIDs scourge; the second was during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Their conversation has triggered such an intense response deep in my psyche. Those health crises were dark days; however, Dr Fauci kept his teams focused on our quest to save lives. Our mantra: Great communication. Data integrity. Devoted patient care.

I would entrust my life to the care of Dr Fauci in a heartbeat. I will always be grateful for his service to humanity.

I woke myself screaming — and no one could hear me…

Now I’m lying here bathed in panic sweat…

Afraid to go back to sleep…
