To wrap up

This tragic incident serves as a somber reminder of several vital principles. It underscores the critical importance of maintaining effective communication and transparency within our healthcare system.

At the same time, it is a stark reminder that vandalism and violence are never the solutions to our problems. Seeking justice for the departed soul is a legitimate and necessary pursuit. It should not be at the expense of the medical professionals who tirelessly work to save lives daily.

We must remember that justice is a multi-faceted concept. It encompasses not only accountability but also the fair treatment of those who provide essential care.

Moreover, we must guard against a chilling effect within our hospitals where fear of retaliation or blame may deter medical professionals from admitting seriously ill patients. If hospitals begin to avoid admitting critical cases out of fear, our entire community will suffer the consequences.

In these trying times, let us strive for a balanced approach that upholds accountability. While also supporting the healthcare professionals who are on the front lines saving lives. We can ensure a healthcare system that is both just and compassionate, where the ultimate goal is the well-being of our community.
