As a young surgeon I worked in the 1960's and 70's in the Veterans Hospital in Lotus City before it was subsumed by the Royal Jubilee Hospital as the Memorial Pavilion. From the large operating room windows one could see the large Trees of Heaven on Adanac Street adjacent to the Veteran's Hospital. They seemed appropriately placed with their helicopter seeds spreading thoughout the neighborhood.
My thoughts have gravitated recently to the Veterans hospital, now gone , and the Tree of Heaven and Remembrance Day and All Souls Day. For those veterans now gone----" These are they who came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb-------- and God will wipe away all tears from their eyes." (Revelations)
