Inspirational Speech

Este é um transcrito de uma cena do último capitulo de Grey's Anatomy, chamado “Give Peace a Chance”. A historia é sobre um paciente (Isaac) que irá ser operado com a intenção de retirar um tumor -em principio não operável- da sua espinha dorsal . Esta conversa acontece na sala de operações entre o cirurgião e o paciente. Acho simplesmente formidável.

Derek- Isaac, If I get in there and it looks to dangerous to remove… the responsible thing is to close you up.

Isaac- No don’t close me up. If you get in and it gets too complicated, cut the chord. Paralyze me if you must. I survived a war, did you know that? I survived a war where they put bodies into mass graves where there was once a playground. I survived the death of my family; my parents, my brothers and sisters. Then I survived the death of my wife and child, when they starved to death in a refugee camp. I survived the loss of my country, of hearing my mother tongue spoken, of knowing what if feels like to have a place to call home. I survived, and I will survived the loss of my legs. If I have to… I’ll survive it. Okay? But Derek…

Derek- Yes?

Isaac- There is always a way. When things look like there’s no way, there is a way… to do the impossible, to survive the un-survivable. There is always a way, and you… you and I have this in common… we’re inspired. In the face of the impossible, we’re inspired. So if I can offer one piece of advice to the world’s foremost Neurosurgeon… today, if you become frightened, instead, become inspired. Okay, I’m ready now… put me to sleep.
