These remarks were given to the Ross Volunteers at the request of Dr. Benjie Brooks, who was responsible for bringing together
the three-day symposium on pediatric surgery on "The Injured Child". These remarks were an effort to lift the discussion
of the injured child to a broader plain and to introduce the general concept of violence to this audience as being the umbrella
under which the injured child usually falls.
In addition to that, I also specifically spoke to the younger folk present at that gathering by addressing the values on which
they will be building their lives and the values that hold meaning to them. I went into caring for our neighbor and specifically
covered the aging population and the disabled or special needs population.
The lecture began, as did the Robert E. Gross lecture given earlier the same day, but stopped on page four and launched into
my broader concept of violence. The new material ended on what is here called page 12. The talk ended with the same ending
of that used in the Robert E. Gross lecture.
