The Miraculous Face Transplant of Richard Norris by Jeanne Marie Laskas, GQ, July 2014 (reading this whole article, I can't help but wonder if this man is better off. He was functioning before and while disfigured, didn't have to take meds every day etc. & now he is good looking but medically dependent on drugs, for the rest of his life. Probably not good for his kidneys. Is this medically ethical?)
The surgery was a success and Norris has since been approached by GQ to be featured in the magazine. | A Man Who Had A Face Transplant Now Looks Fantastic In GQ Magazine

“What is grief?” I recently asked psychologist Steven Stosny, posing the obvious question I’d avoided for so long. “It’s an expression of love,” he told me. “When you grieve, you allow yourself to love again.” “How do you grieve?” I asked him. “You celebrate a person’s life by living your life fully.”
