Ebola isn't an uplifting story. Yet I want to focus on ebola for the following reasons: 1, the commercial press has backed off of the story but the crisis continues; 2, heroic stories are emerging and I'll point to two of them.
First, the story of a Sierra Leonean surgeon.
“But why did I choose to do this job?” he’s quoted as saying. “I firmly believed God wanted me to do it. There was just something inside of me that the people of this part of Freetown needed help.” More details here.
