Love 101

The power that basic human love of looking people in the eye and holding them and caring about them and just basic touch and affect can ease suffering like no pill can.

As a clown Dr. Patch Adams has been at 10,000 death-beds and has witnessed the power of love and compassion. In a quote he says, "if you have 7 days to live, I am your man." What a beautiful attitude and it couldn't be more true. We should all be so fortunate to have a Patch by our side. Well we are.

The written word cannot do Patch the justice that he deserves. Cher Duncombe had the privilege of interviewing Patch so that we can connect more with him and what compassion and love are truly about.

Don't take my word for it. Listen to the audio of this amazing interview and join in his amazing journey

Hey Tony and Cher,

This has indeed been a great effort from you to put all this together. I read the interview and have also heard the audio files and I felt that I should write for the cause. You might remember that last year I had written a post which I had focussed only on Compassion (Compassion is an Ace virtue) and I feel that empathy and compassion together are very important aspects needed for a better system or a society.
