Organ Donor….

I had to renew my license recently and saw the sign at the Secretary of State, the one that has been there every time, the one that says Organ Donor?

I have seen it before and never acted on it. This time it felt different….

Maybe it felt different because recently I had a conversation about how my Aunt Simmie was an organ donor…

Maybe it felt different because I reflected how in her untimely death, someone else (actually more than one person) received hope and life…

Maybe it felt different because somehow as I live in my forties, I realize that unexpected things happen….and sometimes they are life ending….

Maybe it felt different because I realize I am working hard to have healthy organs and there is some sense that now I really do have life to offer through Organ Donation….

And so, when I saw the question, I looked at the guy and uttered the words, “I absolutely want to be an Organ Donor.”

I knew in my gut it was time to stop thinking about it and to commit to it.

I hope that you to will commit to Organ Donation and trust that if your life here on earth is over before your organs wear out, the gift you offer to another is one that will bring hope and life! And in the final gift, you will never be forgotten!
