A pharmacist looking for a role

Yes, I am a pharmacist.
And being a pharmacist is almost like being a criminal.
Once a criminal, always a criminal, once a pharmacist always a pharmacist...

What does it mean to me being a pharmacist?
Once he was the one who could read the doctor's hieroglyphics and prepare something with his own hands, which was supposed to heal the "patient".

Now, he cannot compete with the huge pharmaceutical industry and so what is his job?
For me he has a even more precious role in a society where nobody has time for anybody, where money is the ultimate goal of any human action.
He has the role to give people his time and his knowledge of life.
And his knowledge of life is huge, at least mine is, since I listened for twenty years to people in pain, to people worried for somebody of the family, to people who wanted to know something more about themselves.

And to all I explained that the first requirement to have a good life was to have a good attitude towards life and why not? Also towards death...
Our soul will live forever, not as a spiritual entity, but as the DNA chain that our sons and the sons of our sons will pass from one generation to the other.
Our body will just finish his job sooner or later and the way it does his job depends from us.
If we are willing to listen to our body, if we are willing to LEARN to understand what our body tells us, then our life will be a good one.
If we will just pretend we know everything, and everything better, or we will believe that there is a pill for every situation, one day we will understand we are wrong.
And if you have to learn something it's better sooner than later or too late...
