A bedroom window blocked the noises of New York’s bustling city streets. People hailed taxis as other motorists honked or swore at each other. This mayhem was a contrast to the rigid silence of the military base in England, which Jared Fairfax used to call home. This huge city was a melting pot of world cultures. In London, all the soldiers looked, dressed, spoke and acted the same way. He missed the familiarity of home, but not his dad’s strict disciplinary ways. Jared spread the stack of new textbooks across his bed and sat looking down at them. He breathed in the aroma of freshly printed paper. Dear Lord, I need Your help as I start another year of school. I want to be the best doctor I can possibly be. You are the Great Physician. Throughout the Bible, You showed compassion for the hurting and took time to listen to their problems.
