Albert Schweitzer was probably one of the most saintly figures of the 20th century. He was a professor of theology, a clergyman, a world-famous organist, a historian of religion, a spiritual man, Doctor of Philosophy, writer and a medical doctor that devoted his life to a humanitarian mission in Congo. Over the years Serge Jurasunas life is much influenced by the destiny of Albert Schweitzer and the sacrifice he made by changing his prestigious life to move to Congo where he build a hospital. But is important is that Dr Schweitzer showed us that being a good doctor is firmly rooted in being a good human being as well which is the path follow by Serge Jurasunas during its 56 years of practice.
Today this is what is missing in our artificial society where doctors become more computerized and less human doctor. During the ceremony Serge Jurasunas delivered a speech with humanity purpose showing how our civilization is today in danger as already predicted by Dr Albert Schweitzer. He pointed the role play by devoted researchers with human mission who made great discovery in medicine but have been totally ignored because of financial interest such the Japanese K Asai Ph.D (1908-1982) researcher who devoted all his life to the discovery of the medicinal property of organic germanium and create the Asai Germanium Research Institute who still existing today by keeping doing research which should have been for a nomination for the Nobel Prize.
Surely it is not the only one that have been ignored. We all have something to contribute to our society and as doctor, researcher, spiritual men Serge Jurasunas have done more than his duty trying to save life of patients. It is say that if we save one life we save all the planet, of course we need to save thousand and thousands of life in order to save the planet but as Mother Theresa said If I alone do one good deed today, the world is already a better place, So what’s keeping us from making the world a better place with a better human medicine, with the only interest of treating the patient more than treating the disease and to not forget that the patient is a human being and not a box to fill up with medication.
