1/ I've been encouraged to be apolitical, lest my political views impact my ability to care for patients. The worry that speaking up about racism/social justice issues will impact residency/job prospects weighs on the minds of all #BMIM #BWIM #Sharethemicnowmed @Abdi_Abdullahi
2/ But for some of us, this isn’t a switch you turn on/off. During undergrad, I was pulled over at least 4 times by campus police. I was asked why my vehicle smelled like marijuana, when I’ve never smoked. I was asked if my vehicle was stolen. #Sharethemicnowmed @Abdi_Abdullahi
3/ My father has tried to coach me through minimizing the chance that I’ll be killed by police officers. “Always keep your hands visible on the steering wheel, ask them for permission to take out your documents, smile and say Yes Sir/Ma’am” #Sharethemicnowmed @Abdi_Abdullahi

The result of a bullet ricocheting inside the skull and destroying the brain on CT scan. The worst trauma I have seen. GUNS ARE A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE – Gen Geller MD, NY #docs4gunsense @drgenngeller
The damage a bullet does to a 1 year old brain as it ricochets back and for. The guilt the family feels. The sadness we all feel.
