"This, too, shall pass."

News comes today that beloved actor Morgan Freeman is in serious condition in a Memphis hospital after a road accident. I wish him, his family and his friends well. This is undoubtedly a trying time for them.

His doctors and attending staff, however, are probably the most at-ease of anyone. How could you stay nervous with Morgan Freeman's calm, strong voice asking you questions, sharing stories and making little jokes that belie the nature of his injuries? If it's anything like what I imagine, the hospital staff leave Mr. Freeman's room with a renewed spirit and a liberal dose of hope.

I hope the reality of the situation is like my imaginings. All the best to you, Mr. Freeman; I hope you're well soon.
